IF...AND A BIG IF...this is true then shame on Holmgren although my understanding at the time was that Phoenix was asking for Coots but asking and receiving are two different things. It's possible they were willing to trade Yandle for JVR 1 for 1 but I'm a bit skeptical. However, I do believe that Holmgren did have tunnel vision when it came to Schenn. As I noted ..JVR was a consequence of Bryz and Holmgren as well as Snider believing Bryz was actually a good goalie but needed to be "protected" more with stay at home D and Lavi altering his system. To me they just didn't want to admit they made a huge mistake and they wound up doubling down on it until they got their get out of jail free/amnesty card....
