Did our Captain specifically call out Holmgren for ****ty cap management in an end of year press conference because he did a bang up job? Were we unable to trade for a goalie last year because of his brilliance at working the numbers?

Just because you have Holmgren's schlong pushed so far down your throat it's performing a tonsillectomy doesn't mean you can ignore recent history so casually.

And, of course, all this without mentioning the absolute awesome-sauce that was the Randy Jones decision last year. But, ya know, "what can you do?"

We're in a tenuous cap position. We have a ton of big money contracts tied up in aging players. Because Holmgren has parted with picks like a drunk buying rounds at the bar, our system is largely bereft of actual talent to fill in as we lose bodies in the coming years.
This is awesome.
