So did Tallon. He got fired... deservedly. That idiot may have single handedly killed one of the few chances in the NHL for a dynasty at this point.
Yeah people forget how awful his cap management was. Paying 3+ mil for Vertseeg after 1 season in the NHL, ditto with Byfuglin, and Bolland got payed too much too early as well. Add in Huet and Campbell as huge wastes of space too.
Holmgren has still made some great moves in his tenure (Coburn, signing Timonen, Leino) but each one can be countered with an idiotic move. His Giroux and Carter deals are good, so hopefully he can stop overpaying.
