Even if this doesn't work out for them, I admire Holmgren for recognizing that the team wasn't good enough as it stood and being willing to make DRASTIC changes. The Rangers could have benefited from a similar mindset in the not too distant past.
Like 07? Gutting team and hiring 3 big free agents? That worked out fine..
