The Flyers were a 101-point team in 05-06. They were a 101-point team in 03-04. They were terrible in 06-07, but that was due to injuries and terrible coaching, not so much to player personnel; it was a bump in the road. While Holmgren's moves were laudable, and they certainly were flashy, he didn't start with nothing. His moves weren't the only catalyst for turning the team into a 95-point team with a Cinderella playoff run.
Good post -- points well taken!
