We have no such long term plan. Holmgren has no vision. Holmgren's calendar only has 3 months on it, never looks further ahead than that.
Or maybe Holmgren subscribed to the Mayan calendar and he expected it to all be over so he feels he's just playing with house $.
At the very least, if Timonen wasn't going to give us a homedown discount, couldn't we have waited till the year was almost over to make sure Timonen is still healthy and hasn't slowed down massively?
Oh who am I kidding, that would make too much sense.
I agree with you in general about the long term plan thing, but I'd really like to know who this top-notch PMD prospect is. Gus? Ghost?
EDIT: Disregard last part. Read your post wrong.
