I agree and I disagree. Sure we were in a bad spot because of the Bryz signing. That deserves blame, no question. But Holmgren made the most out of it and he got a fine return given that position. Most of us were pleased at what we got for Bob.

He put himself in that position (deserves blame), but he did fine once he was in that position (deserves credit). I'm not willing to judge the trade on the basis of what Bobrovsky has become. Nobody expected that, and it's disingenuous to use hindsight to evaluate that deal.
