Basically one may have been greater than the other, but as the years of worn on they are both on an equal playing field now.
That's still not an apt analogy/comparison, because in this instance Holland -- as much as he's regressed or whatever -- still ices a roster that makes the playoffs. Snow does not (as of this posting before anyone gets smarmy about it and bumps this next year if the Isles make the playoffs).

In your analogy, you've got two useless players. But a better analogy would be Craig Adams and Brad Richards. Richards isn't what he used to be, but he's still halfway decent.
