I don't think Paul Holmgren will work out in the nerdy way that I did, but he is one of the great GMs of our time. He's a sharp man. He did the Pronger trade which thus far has been mixed but was a brave gamble, he did the Carter and Richards trades, and he showed a lot of balls, smart balls, in going after Shea Weber the way he did.

A lot of teams that wheel and deal end up like Brian Burke's Toronto. Philadelphia, however, is one of the powerhouses of the eastern conference.
