"Until then I think that we give him the benefit of the doubt and see how this year plays out."
I copied the title verbatim from one of the comments to the latest post on mc79hockey.com.
I assume "we" refers to fans/Oilogosphere and "him" is Kevin Lowe of course. I don't mean to pick on the original commenter because he's one of a cast of thousands, but this shit drives me bonkers.
It drives me nuts because I've heard this one before.
In May, "then" referred to training camp. Fast forward through the offseason and all of a sudden we discover that "then" refers to May 2008 and we're supposed to forget about a whole summer's worth of schizophrenic asset management and just set another deadline with no expectations.
Why mess around? Let's just say it like it is.
Oiler fans are just killing time until The Rapture and only then, when Kevin is high in the sky floating up to heaven like a stray helium balloon, will we decide whether or not Lowe spits or swallows as a GM.
