All I have to say is, WOW, Holmgren has the balls to make big moves. If NSH doesn't match, they just paved themselves a road out of the playoffs for the next couple of years. Philly is in a win/win situation, 4 low first rounders (26-30) for an elite franchise d-man, locked up for the rest of his career, either that or nothing happens at all.
low first rounders, in an ideal situation.........what if Bryz craps the bed? What if the kids can't carry the load? Suppose they hve some injuries? Any one of these situations could push their pick to a pretty good spot.
