Once again, Holmgren has no concept of cap space, why it's important, and how to keep his hand out of his pants until he sees what the actual market price for players is.

Long term planning is a foreign concept to the Flyers. And unless Holmgen & Co. figure out that it's important to construct a team logically, we all might as well settle in for a cycle of make the playoffs-out in first round/miss the playoffs for the foreseeable future.
how did Holmgren's bad management of cap space hurt the Flyers so far?
i remember having to give Gagne to Tampa but what else?
trying to land Weber? signing Bryz who was expected by most fans in the league to be a solution. I blame Bryz more than the gm..
pronger? he did perfectly well while healthy.

Who else got a stupid contact that prevented Philly from doing something else? briere done well early and it was fully expected his production would drop the latter years.
