Does that sound like a GM concerned about an alleged "drinking problem"?
Snider told him to make those trades, primarily because of the rift between Pronger and some of the younger players. The message was "Pronger's the leader, and the rest of you ignore that fact at your peril".
Didn't he also say it is what it is?
Sounds like Snider led the way on the deals and Holmgren just followed, regardless of what it'd do to the team itself.
