The implied scenario in this thread is that Holmgren, after a door-slamming tirade from Mr. Snider, will pick up the phone and start cold-calling other GMs in a desperate attempt to land a thoroughbred or two for a few of the also-rans and roster anchors currently wearing the Flyers jersey. I'd be pretty upset if he didn't already have a very good idea of the value of most of the Flyers roster in the eyes of his colleagues, and is continually talking with the fellow GMs about potential moves.

Sure, circumstances change, especially if there's a new element of desperation that someone else can exploit, but I think one would assume that generally about a half-dozen potential deals just need some fine-tuning to balance things out. I also highly doubt that a GM would pull up a player profile on TSN, see that player X is COLD (0 pts in last 3 games) and completely change his mind on the player's value.
