After watching and listening to Kevin Lowe’s comments last night, it is clear to me that change within the organization is coming. The Oilers played one of their better games of the season last night, yet they still lost, and coupled with the Blues and Ducks’ victories, it is clear that the off-season will start April 12th for the Oilers, and that the changes will follow soon after.

I got the sense watching Kevin Lowe’s press conference last night that the local media were not going to go easy on him in the next few days, and that owner Daryl Katz’s heavy-handed attempt to cutoff conversation about the future of his head coach was going to backfire badly.

They say timing is everything, and the timing for Darryl Katz to declare his coach is safe is very puzzling.

The Oilers playoff hopes are on the brink (I said a loss against the Ducks was the unofficial end of the dream, but mathematically they are still alive), and the Sharks are circling tonight.

Just because it feels like cheesy Sun headlines day.
Craig MacTavish’s pre-game press conference featured some interesting dialogue between the coach and the reporters; dialogue that gives us a very good idea of how he views the current situation at centre. His responses to two key questions were especially illuminating.
