Craig MacTavish Might Be In Charge, But Kevin Lowe Doesn't Know.

Disagreement as to who is in charge - it's just another day in Edmonton.

Monday, the Owner of the Edmonton Oilers told the fans:

But when it comes down to it, this is Craig MacTavish’s team. He is the GM. He makes the calls, and he is accountable

He might want to let his President of Hockey Operations know:

"At the end of the way, when those recommendations or when those ideas come up, Craig will talk to me and get my feelings on it and you know . . . we talk enough over the course of the season that I generally know where he's going on things and, you know, there's an owner that has to make a call in terms of whether you're going to spend the money for a free agent or trade an asset that's been part of the organization for a while, so there's a collective decision being made.

The worst team is still awful, the Owner fails terribly with a public message, the PR team fails hilariously with their astroturfing effort, and the men in charge have no idea who is in charge.
