The problem here is that Lowe had gotten criticized for every single trade he's made before fans cooled down. If anyone got excuses it was Slats. He could do no wrong whereas Lowe can do no right.
Did you know that Lowe received death threats after trading Carter and Niinimaa. Is that anyway to treat a GM of any team? After the Hamrlik trade, fans wanted him fired. IMO, Lowe is underrated as a GM as he gets criticized for every trade and move he makes. He even gets criticized for the good trades and moves. Go figure.
