Nothing but Oil blue will do

PITTSBURGH -- Craig MacTavish won't wear a New York Ranger sweater along with the rest of the 1994 Stanley Cup team to celebrate Mark Messier's banner raising.

"I can't handle it when one of our players wears a baseball hat with any other logo on it other than the Oilers in our dressing room," said the Edmonton Oiler coach who was a member of the 1994 Ranger Cup-winning team.

The Oilers play the Rangers tomorrow and the Messier ceremonies go before the game.

MacTavish said he's the Edmonton Oiler coach. Period. And he's being consistent. MacTavish did not play in the Mega Stars game with Gretzky, Messier, Kevin Lowe, etc. against Guy Lafleur and the Montreal Canadien oldsters in the Heritage Classic.

Will Lowe wear the Rangers uniform and be part of the ceremonies? He still hasn't decided.

"Might be a game-time decision," he laughed.
