Okay gone.
So...present the other side. If there's another side that makes that deal out to be great, then go for it.

Holmgren hasn't been a GM for that long. He had the season of suck, where he got Coburn and unloaded Forsberg (both good deals), which enabled him to take advantage of his scouting and talent analysis skills (honed over years as a scout/Asst. GM).

First full season: went to the ECF after spending lots of money the previous offseason.

Second full season: was last season...which was just a BRUTAL season as far as his GM skills.

Third full season: Randy Jones debacle at the very outset, and a goalie problem throughout.

He's had a single full season as a GM where he hasn't made any a***hole decisions when given the keys from the offseason onward.
