In other words not missing Holik last year seemed to be more of a credit to the Devs system and organization then a knock on Holik's ability.
To be honest with you, do you think the Devs could use a big bruising centerman at this point in time? I believe so.
Too true, the system IS what makes that team, and they could use a centerman like him.
Now that I think about it I guess where my mind was heading was that I don't think he's a 9 mil player and maybe the benefit of being on the Devil's raised his value to a much higher point than he is ACTUALLY worth. My opinion, not trying to say he wouldn't be worth 9 mil to some teams, but for that money it should change the complexion of the team for the better. It's also possible that Sather's inability is making Holik look like less than he's worth. So many variables.
