That move was completely uncalled for when it was made. I remember it to this day..I was pretty livid when they announced it. I was even more livid with Holmgren's rationale and explanation. Used that simpleton logic that it was a late pick (practically a 2nd) and they were trading for a more known commodity! Um yeah so having one good series against you but pretty much underachieving for most of the season made him a known commodity???
