EDMONTON -- Five words can sometimes say so much.

And the five words Edmonton Oilers' owner Daryl Katz sent in a text message to the broadcast booth last night will be read in a lot of ways.

Katz sent a text message to the broadcast booth of rights-holding radio station announcing "Katz says he's firmly in the corner of MacTavish."

The five words of the text message were then quoted: "MacT is not going anywhere."

"The fact it was one our pre-game show that he was listening to discussion on the future of our head coach ... He just wanted to crush that for once and for all, it's as simple as that.," Oilers President of Hockey Operations Kevin Lowe said after last night's game vs. the San Jose Sharks.
