edit: Mike ****ing Richards called Holmgren out over cap and asset management (and this was at least a year ago). When a player starts to pick it up it's a tell-tale sign for a big ****ing idiot GM
The funny thing is, I agree with you that Clarke was a better GM, though his rep in the cap era is not as strong as his work pre-lockout. He got burnt out or whatever and we have who we have. FWIW, I defended Clarke left and right on the ESPN boards during his second stint as Flyers' GM. I simply disagree with you on Holmgren being inept - though I question a couple of his offseason moves, too.

As for Mike Richards, calling out the GM after the team he captains showed as much effort getting ousted by the Penguins as Nik Zherdev on a bad day was dumb. He needed to look inward - and got Pronger as a teammate for his trouble.

I think Mountainhawk was only looking at the 4 losses, but you're right. The Flyers scored all of 2 goals in that series - only 1 in regulation.
