He has completely retooled/rebuilt this team twice now. Meanwhile we haven't had a non-playoff team under his watch as GM (ignoring 2006-07). Our team looks amazing going forward.

Holmgren has his screw ups, but he is not just "solid" at evaluating talent. He might be at the top of the league in terms of evaluating talent and acquiring the right pieces to keep the Flyers at the height of NHL competition.
