The fact is we are looking for a puck moving replacement for a reason regardless of whether Carle would have been overpaid. Actually, Holmgren could have handled it much much better than he did and signed him to a somewhat more reasonable contract than Tampa. Holmgren IMO just totally botched the Jagr and Carle situations.
So you didn't want to go after Weber and/or Suter and Parise? Because it woudlnt have happenned with Jagr and Carle at 4.5 and 5.5

10million cap hit for those 2 is laughable.

edit: He didnt botch anything, he had a choice to make. Those 2 or gamble on Weber and Parise. No brainer any way you look at it.
Flyers wouldnt have been any closer to a cup with Jagr and Carle, they sure as hell woulda been with Weber and Parise.
