Anyway, fourth line center on a one-year deal. There is no conceivable way in which this can be a franchise-crippling move either way...
What everyone is missing here is that we could have taken other actions rather than wasting time on the Betts pick up. Perhaps no harm done but Holmgren has cost us about a week of time in taking other actions to obtain a 4th line Center. We could have lost out on a UFA or other player because of this, and Holmgren and the Flyers should be fined for it.
It is actually quite a serious situation, and Holmgren is not going to be appreciated by other GM's for this. If Buttman does not act on this, then he is a joke. Some investigation at least is required.
On thing we should appreciate about PG and the Habs is they always act in good faith, they don't cheat other teams, and they treat players very well. I think the Habs are appreciated by other teams for this, and I think they benefit now and then for it, with fair deals from other GMs.
