That's the thing with owners like Davis, Snyder, Snider, etc......As a GM, you need to be a strong willed GM and let them know that you're running the hockey operations and they need to trust the decisions you make.

Now, do I think Ed said to Holmgren that Bryzgalov was the guy he wanted? I don't think he said Bryzgalov's name, but that he told Holmgren the goaltending carousel needs to stop and that Holmgren needs to get a starting goaltender. I think Snider pushed the idea of getting a starter and that Holmgren jumped on what the boss said.
Bingo.

This is prototypical ********* double-talking; nothing more. "I didn't pick Bryzgalov... I just told Holmgren he has until the start of next season to get the best goaltender we haven't had since Lindbergh and Hextall, or he's out of a job."
