I'm sure Lowe is still the guy pulling the puppet strings in Edmonton, but yes, Tambellini is officially their GM
What evidence do you have of that?
I know he is very involved through a friend that used to work for the Oilers' management and now works for the Winnipeg Jets. She implied his opinions lay heavy on Tambellini. She used to work for the Giants and the Flames as well. She's been pretty good with her information that she has given out to friends over the years.
I don't know of many other President of Hockey Operations unless they are also the GM that follow the team around like Lowe does. Every single time the Oilers are in town, Lowe is in the box with Tambellini. I am sitting at the same level they are in my seats and have a clear view of the visiting GM box at Rogers Arena.
I don't have hard evidence but it's circumstances and hearsay that say I'm probably closer to the truth with my opinion and assumptions than some may think. But this isn't a court of law, it's a hockey board. Speculation is rampant, thought I'd throw my two cents in.
