As far as team building, I would much rather build thru the draft but that doesnt work in this market. Flyers fans would not wait on a 3-5 year rebuild, especially at those ticket prices. Also you do not need a top pick to get a #1 defensemen, as more than 50% come after round 1. It's really just luck.

The only thing Holmgren has not accomplished is winning the Stanley Cup, but he has put the Flyers in position to do it every year. His record proves that, whether you agree or not. The record is the record. Signing Kimmo keeps that window open for next year and gives the Flyers more time to figure out a long term solution on the back end.
Thank you for posting the contradictions, I knew they were there but looking for them would have been way too much time for me.
