Could Lowe be eyeing Brewer?

CHICAGO -- Edmonton Oilers GM Kevin Lowe rejoined his team in the Windy City last night, but not before taking in Saturday night's game in St. Louis between the Blues and Columbus Blue Jackets.

While Lowe characterized the visit as one of his many scouting trips during the season, speculation has been he's interested in St. Louis defencemen Eric Brewer, Christian Backman and Barret Jackman.

Beaten by the Blue Jackets 5-1 and dead-last in the Western Conference, Blues GM John Davidson might be forced to make a move -- aside from talk about firing coach Mike Kitchen -- and you can bet Lowe wants an inside track on the three rearguards if any one of them is put on the trading block.
