I respect Holmgren's ability to make deals, but as far as everything else, he just seems like a mad man at the wheel, throwing away money without thinking twice. The Bryz situation and the Weber were perfect examples. Team has a hole at G/D? Well, rather than explore trade options or pick up someone underrated and cheap, just fork over a contract worth $51m/$110m and everything will be fine, right?
