Did Larry Murphy deserve the hate he received in Toronto?

We don't like bad goalies, or slow defenseman who get beat.
There is no excuse for the fans running LM out of town. He was making good money and was well known so he was the natural lightening rod for the uninformed. He got caught flatfooted a couple of times because the team around him sucked for a number of reasons. Look at his wiki page and you'll see the resume of a d man who any GM would give his left AND right nut for.

I agree but even a bad GM can get multiple offers if the rest of the teams in the league think that he has something of value to them but in the end Toronto gave Murphy to Detroit for nothing and paid some portion of his salary. Evidence shows that the rest of the league's opinion of Larry Murphy was much the same as Leafs fans.

Ofcourse Murphy's stock was down a bit but it was mainly because of age and not because of his play which he proved in Detroit.
