BUFFALO -- The Edmonton Oilers meet the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow night where Kevin Lowe and Scott Howson will meet Don Meehan.

"I expect to talk to them this weekend," said Meehan, the agent for Oilers' unrestricted free agent Ryan Smyth.

Nothing is planned for today, says Oilers' GM Lowe, but he expects he and assistant GM Howson will meet with Meehan "sometime Saturday.''

Neither side offered any expectation of getting a deal done while the Oilers are in Toronto. With the trade deadline 11 days away, the clock is ticking louder on getting a deal done, but there's every indication Meehan is in no rush.

Lowe, two weeks ago, made what was characterized as the Oilers' "first serious offer'' for the 12-year veteran.

Lowe will be in Naples, Fla., for general manager meetings Sunday through Tuesday.
