With regards to Homer, let's also remember that he took a big gamble on Chris Pronger -- he is a gambler -- and he lost. I know we got to the Cup in 2010 and that was great, but we were still 2 pieces away (competent goalie, competent #5 dman). It didn't seal the deal. We essentially traded 3 1sts and Lupul for an extended rental. Yes, I know that Pronger's injury was a freak injury, but it still happened.

Holmgren built a team around Pronger and we got to see that for one full year and parts of others. Anyone who says they wouldn't undo that deal -- with everything else staying the same -- is crazy.
