so far as revenge? i dont expect that. i would think that holmgren's relationship that has gotten several deals done over the years with nashville has been severely compremized.
The relationship became compromised when Polie was demanding a ridiculous trade price from Holmgren for a RFA that obviously already wanted to sign with Philly.

I'd say it was compromised before Holmgren shoved a **** sandwich down NSHs throat.
