Holmgren is the architect of the mess of a Flyers team.
Holmgren has provided a basic framework for a team, but his glaring holes negate the possibility for success.
Holmgren has failed spectaculary as a GM, and has fired Lavi to hide his ineptitude.
Holmgren should really have been fired after last season, a new Gm could have decided whether Lavi, was the problem or not.
Holmgren continues to sign 35+ year old players, who are slower and at the end of their careers and then overpays them.
Holmgren ignored the need to develop defensive men for years to the detriment of the club.
Finally, he addresses the defensive woes with top prospects, but they will develop under another Gm after the Flyers miss the playoffs again this year.
Even I won't hold a GM responsible for something he hasn't done.
