Referencing Holik and Vlad is assanine. Holik didnt have a star player to click with, and we're not talking about defensemen. Leetch was always our #1 while Vlad was here regardless.
The thought of Holik as a first liner is abysmal and laughable. Nylander was Jagr's boy, but that doesn't change the fact that he was played out of position & wasn't the best choice down the middle.

It was the fact that we serenated Jagr with the people he felt the team should be built with in order for him and the team to have success. Nower days, we don't have an individual who has preference as to who we should bring over b/c they once had chemistry together.
