Holmgren has really screwed up the Flyers' franchise.
Paul Holmgren has been a terrible GM for the Philadelphia Flyers. He took a team that went to the Stanley Cup Final in 2010 and he has tore it apart piece by piece.
He started the process when he traded Mike Richards and Jeff Carter for a group of prospects. Thus far the prospects have not progressed as planned, and the freed up cap space went to Ilya Bryzgalov.
While Wayne Simmonds and Jabuk Voracek are good players, they weren't the centerpieces of the trade.
Bryzgalov is no longer a Flyer, but he will be making a hefty sum of money to hang out in parks or on his couch at home.
Even though the buyout is terrible, Holmgren used the CBA to his advantage by getting rid of Bryzgalov and Danny Briere, and it looked like he had learned from his past mistakes.
But then that went down the tubes once Holmgren found his checkbook. The Flyers signed Vincent Lecavalier even though scoring hasn't been an issue for the team.
The Flyers' GM has done a terrible job managing his assets and finances, and he could be out of a job very soon. To Flyers fans reading this; would you rather have Vincent Lecavalier or Mike Richards and Jeff Carter?
The choice is clear, but it wasn't for Holmgren.
