He said he had Holmgren, Carle, and his agent on record that Carle was coming back. Depends if you believe him, or if the following events changed the situation. The Wideman contract was retarded, and even more dumb since they're going to trade Bouwmeester.


Whether you love or hate Holmgren, it's by far the worst trade he's made and should rightfully be blasted when the topic comes up. You know who else we kept a 'close eye' on before acquiring him (according to Holmgren), Matt Carle. They obviously had a 'close eye' on Weber apparently. You can get these guys a lot cheaper when you have a keener eye on them before they're drafted.
