This is very true. I would be not at all surprised if the Weber thing blows up in Holmgren's face one way or the other. I actually think he's the best cautionary tale WRT wanting GMGM to make a big splash. I'm no McPhee fan, but I see how Holmgren has largely screwed his team with the Pronger trade and signing (I know they got an SCF out of it, but...), the Carter/Richards trades, etc... He's always doing something big and flashy but he's rarely successful and often ends up looking a fool. Sather too, though he's skilled at unloading his mistakes on others, see: Gomez, Scott.
