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).

Flyers Trades

Sabres Trades
I believe he meant the freed up cap space facilitated the Brygz signing.......and that is still their biggest obstacle.
