So stupid. I can't believe people like Gleason give Holmgren credit for being bold. No, he was stupid. You don't trade guys like Mike Richards. Jeff Carter? Sure. Not Mike Richards. And then to compound the mistake by signing a mercurial guy like Bryz to such a huge, long-term deal.
Signing Bryz (or any goalie) to that type of contract was monumentally stupid.

But the trading of Ricahrds/Carter was absolutely bold... and absolutely the right thing to do.

You know what NOT trading Richards/Carter ends up looking like? San Jose-Thornton/Marleau.
