Do we give Holmgren enough credit?

Itīs way too early say Jagr will be good the whole year.
Itīs way too early to say homer is a genius because of this offseason...
bad article in my opinion.
When we look back at last year:
Meszaros and OīDonnell were one of the best dman in the league with +20 after the first half of the season. All of us say the meszaros deal and the odonnel signing was a perfect fit. After the season all of us say, pls donīt resign Odonnell he is too slow and must retire.....
Same with Bob or Carle or Pronger .....
If we win the division after the season i will say Homer has it done very well. But before its way too early in my opinion.
I consider Homer a genius for turning us into the worst team in the league to a Eastern Conference finalist in 1 season. Of course he had spending money. Now that he never has spending money, we often end up in trouble.
Meszaros and O'Donnell rode the offensive coattails of the HBL line last season. O'Donnell was a good pickup for a 6th defenseman, but he also noticeably wore down as the season went on. He certainly shouldn't define Homer's reign of madness and success.
