It is, because the Flyers made those trade not only knowing what their contracts were, but knowing that it would put them further into cap trouble.


A GM with any sort of consciousness would say "gee, I have one of the top 3 or 4 coaches in the league, who should be able to get a little more out of what I would be paying for them, so I should have to spend less."
Nah, you assemble the best team you can independent of your coach (though, hopefully tailored to his playing style). So, the question then becomes... is this the best group of guys he could have assembled with his cap space?

And that's before we get into the fact that Holmgren inexplicably tied up a LOT of cap space next year in guys we don't necessarily need.
