Lowe will do what he has always done - target certain guys and then wait until the team that currently has the player gives him up. He did that in the Poti/York deal and I think he did that with Torres as well (Isbister was a toss-in IMO). I dont know who he's targeted from the ducks/la/isles/thrashers but he hasn't gotten him yet or the deal would already be done. The best time to do the deal is when you get what you want - simple as that - and what Lowe wants for Comrie was probably decided long ago (stud dman?). Lowe seems to have a plan and sticks with it in spite of the ups and downs that fans go through.
Whether it's a smaller issue like trading MC or building the team - you make a good plan and stick with it unless something unforeseen happens. Rash moves like what Bobby Clarke gave up for Oates after he lost 2 centers to injury 2 years ago rarely pan out. This Lowe guy is a patient man and I respect him for that.
