Holmgren chose Luke Schenn over Yandle? Ouch.

Probably should have gone with Yandle anyways, if price could've been reduced, since the problem was Bryz, not the defense.
Eh, Yandle can break out but is soft on D, right? So we'd gripe about him the same way we do about Streit, and we'd be lacking one of our quality forwards to boot.
I think this is overblown, to be honest. Lots of deals don't happen, freaking out about them long after the fact is doing little good, especially since we have no idea what other deals or contingencies may have been in place.
