That logic is questionable though, because the point is that it is a bad contract, or at least an unnecessary one. Just because the team is playing well now, does not make the contract a good one. If he were scoring or adding in solid ways, yes, but he is not. Just because that million isn't hurting us now, who is to say it won't be a problem later? Or, one could argue that putting us so close to the cap will limit roster flexibility later in the season.

Holmgren believes that if there is any money at all under the cap, it must be used immediately. That is a dangerous ideology.
