I still blame the loss of Pronger for all of our problems. We lost one of the best defensemen over the past 2 decades, and in order to get him we gave up 2 first round picks, Lupul, and Sbisa. This is hard to recover from. Those would have likely been 4 players to fill out our roster or trade to solve other problems. I think it was Ken Campbell who pointed out how St. Louis, Edmonton, and Anaheim all had severe drop off in points after Pronger left.

I don't blame Holmgren for our problem because of this. If Pronger were healthy, we wouldn't be in this shape. In trying to get Parise and Suter and Weber he was trying to make us a better team.
