Do we give Holmgren enough credit?

You're missing the point. I'm not saying we needed more goals or anything like that. The poster that was directing that at is saying Roloson is better so therefore would have done better. I am saying that just sticking a better player into a position doesn't mean that player will have a better impact. Stick Ovechkin or whomever you want on that line instead of Umberger and it is by no means a guarantee that he puts up better numbers. You can speculate that he might, and it might even be more likely that he would, but that doesn't make it a guarantee. He also could have done worse. Just like putting a player that isn't as good as Umberger on that line and he may have done better.
The point I've been making is that speculative results cannot possibly be worth as much, and certainly not more than, actual results, but many posters on here appear to be giving more credit to the speculative results rather than the real ones.
