Oilers Set for Season of Celebrations 
With opening night of the 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers season less than one month away, the Club is delighted to announce a series of celebrations throughout the year recognizing career milestones, contributions to the game and our community, as well as a new initiative to acknowledge the achievements of Oilers greats.
 
Most importantly, this year’s season of celebrations gives the organization the opportunity to include Oilers fans who were unable to attend games last year due to the pandemic.
 
Joey Moss Dressing Room Tribute: In recognition of contributions to the Club dating back to the 1980’s and the indelible mark left on the organization and community by the late Joey Moss, a unique dressing room tribute will be unveiled by current Oilers on September 28th.  
 
Kevin Lowe Banner Raising Celebration: To acknowledge his incredible accomplishments on and off the ice as an Edmonton Oiler and his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Club will proudly raise Kevin Lowe’s number 4 to the rafters of Rogers Place on Friday, November 5th with the New York Rangers in town.
 
Recognition of Edmonton Oilers Greats: A new and exciting area for fans to celebrate Edmonton Oilers of distinction is also in the early planning stages with more details to be announced later in the season.    
 
Media Wall of Honour: The Club is also pleased to be adding more names to its Media Wall of Honour later this season. The 2022 induction class will be selected and announced in the new year.      
 
Oilers individual game tickets for the 2021-22 season go on sale tomorrow, Tuesday, September 21 at 10:00 AM at EdmontonOilers.com. A limited number of tickets for Kevin Lowe’s Banner Celebration game against the New York Rangers are currently available as part of the 4-game Power Pack #4 also at EdmontonOilers.com.

I mean, I suppose he had a really solid career. But, I dunno. I never watched him play so I can't really judge how good he was. I just have stats to go off of. He was kinda bad as a GM though. But hey, apparently they were in financial pain for those years. So I really dunno how to respond here. Lol. Good for him I suppose.

Let’s be honest.  
 

The only reason why Kevin Lowe is getting his number retired is because the guy rode Messier’s nut sack harder than Kim Clark in winning those 6 Stanley Cups.  No Messier and no Gretzky = Kevin Lowe being about as relevant as the Adrian Plavsic.

Lowe was essentially Edler, only he would fight too. Tough 2-way guy, who would put up big points in his earlier days, but who became a more defensive guy as he aged (and the team he played for was less dominate too). Had we won in 2011, we’d probably be putting Edler in the rafters too.

 

Plus Lowe is in the HHOF. The guy played over 1,450 games (including playoffs), and won 6 cups. Sure, the cups had more to do with the stars he got to play with, but still…hard to argue with those numbers.
