He is the best defenseman in the league and his prime should last at least another 6 years, he was absolutely worth it from their perspective given the situation with Pronger.
I admire Holmgren's aggressiveness to an extent but I also think making splashy moves can be a diversion for the fanbase. Keep them chattering about new additions and blockbuster moves while glossing over the fact that the moves have yet to add a Cup. It's a good career move in the entertainment business.
