Holmgren was bidding against himself in acquiring Pronger. I think that is the thing that people do forget. No other team even aproached the Ducks about Pronger except for Holmgren. It doesnt matter who those players were that the Ducks drafted with the 1st rounders we gave them. The price shouldnt of been that high. Losing Sbisa and the 1st that year was fine. The 1st the following year should of been conditional on winning the Cup. not the 3rd.
The contract extension was stupid and another case of piss poor mismangement. No one in the organization failed to realize the contract was a 35+ one until it was too late and filed with the league. Someone didnt do their homework and now its beginning to look like its going to bite us in the ass. big time.
