Is it possible that we, as a fan base, may be overreacting to this poor season?

Homer makes many more good decisions than bad ones. I am not ready to rip his head off like some.
From Meltzer's POV it was a pipe dream from the beginning in the meantime they let the market dictate the terms. They could have avoided the market driving up the cost of Carle and Jagr while they told them to sit tight going for a pipe dream. Again Meltzer in a post noted how during the season they had tagging space and that Holmgren blurted out in public that he could sign Carle at below market rate then he lets him go to market..go figure. As Meltzer notes:
"It's market value. Either pay it or don't pay it. But if you don't pay it, realize the blueline would get worse, not better."
The Weber offer came after and was a better gamble although high risk but higher reward especially considering Weber wanted to come here until Nashville got all butthurt and felt the Flyers pushed them around...
