All in all I'd say that Holmgren did a very good job as GM. He's been in the top quarter of the GMs in the game during his tenure. Player procurement is his specialty. Perhaps contracts, not so much but then again what was Lukko's and Snider's roles in them?
His poor knowledge of the CBA was his main problem I think. And yes there are people under him that should know it but when your boss has an iffy understanding of it, it causes problems.
