Do we give Holmgren enough credit?

I think Tallon is a *ing idiot, but he built the Blackhawks that won the Cup.. he's also the reason they barely made the playoffs last year, and may not win another Cup in the foreseeable future despite being setup to be a dynasty a few years back.
It would be one thing if the Flyers had come up short and you couldn't pinpoint why on
that the GM failed to address... but with the Flyers, you can.
Come on, man. You're putting speculative results over actual ones like everyone else on here. If the Flyers had gotten goalie that year, there is no guarantee they would have won the Cup or that the team would have even looked the same way it did then or now. Could have helped to have a different goalie, obviously, but maybe that would have meant losing another player in order to get that goalie and we don't even make the playoffs that year. All we have are the results. Anything else is pure speculation.
