EDM Offer Sheet To Penner

looks like KLowe is at it again...

per tsn-

The Edmonton Oilers are back at it again, tendering a five year, $21.5 million offer sheet to Anaheim Ducks Group II restricted free agent Dustin Penner.

Kevin Lowe is definitely trying to make a point that he is still a shrewd competitor with other GMs. He has been heard, and now everyone in the hockey world knows that their RFAs are currently not safe. Lowe is proving that he is still an excellent GM and nothing is going to stop him from giving an offer sheet to talented high-priced RFAs. Even though things went wrong in the EDM organization this year, he is still giving a huge effort into his team.

Props to Kevin Lowe.

Wow, Lowe is really going to garnish up a good lot of enemy GM's if he continues this way.

First Regier with a 7 mil per year, and now Burke with Penner.
I remember reading somewhere that any offer sheet for Penner would be immediately matched by Burke.

"any offer sheet for Penner would be immediately matched by Burke."

Yeah but what GM won't say they'll match anything? Not that I disbelieve Burke but at the same time, it's just the nature of his job to have that kind of canned response.

I wouldn't call Lowe shrewd, more stupid than anything. Burke already said he'd match any offer for Penner.
Lowe, an excellent GM? Far from. He's driving the price of RFAs up on other GMs. As if anyone is going to want to swing a deal with the jerk now. EDM is really in trouble. It's going to be another long season in Alberta.

Exactly what I was saying, he's probably already pissed them off enough, geez, 4 mil PLUS a year for Penner?

Too soon, WAY too soon, he's paying for potential, and not for production, kind of like what Holmgren did in Philadelphia with Hartnell, sheesh, 4.2 million per year!

Burke can get back his picks from the pronger trade.

Lowe = foolish.

I will laugh if that #1,#2 and #3 he gives away costs him Tavares.
