Who of B. Schenn, Couturier, Simmonds and Voracek is their biggest obstacle to contention? Or did I miss the point? Seems like those moves have locked in a 5 year window of contention to me.

Holmgren has been very active and IMO quite impressive. By my count he's made 54 trades since he started in late 2006 while Darcy has made 27. The Flyers were in pretty crummy condition when he took the helm. The Forsberg-Timonen/Hartnell deals in particular have been crucial to their 5 straight post-seasons. He's a good, active GM, 95% of Sabre fans would swap Darcy for him (I hope).
