Feel free to Grade his overall performance as GM and last years as well.
Feel free to praise or vent as appropriate to your feelings on the subject.

Hopefully some will have interest in this thread.

My Holmgren GM Rating: D C+ If he had hit on the Weber deal or the other deal last summer it would be higher.

Free agency: C
Some good some bad, most OK.

Undrafted free agents: C

Drafting: C B+

Only number #1 Picks have chance of being a regular NHL player.
No #1 Defenseman prospects drafted.
No #1 Goalie prospects drafted.

Trades: D
Holmgren has made 8 good trades out of a total of 17.
Pronger trade was bad. You have to be kidding? Brutal! I hated the trade at 1st but when Chris played here that changed my mind.

Cap management: F C+ Does a very good job on the edge.
Holmgren’s cap management is atrocious,
overpays, salary dumps mismanages contracts.

Intangibles: F A Love this team
[/B]Builds Team backwards, Lack of Patience developing players,
Lack of Plan for future
As you can see we agree to disagree. Your statement about the Pronger trade . Interesting to say the least.
