Not sure the blame lies in the right place. Holmgren traded away or let go a lot of great talent, leaving Lavi little left to work with. Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, Patrick Sharp, Sergei Bobrovsky, Simon Gagne, James Van Riemsdyk…. everything just got messed up.
Best of luck in future endeavors, Peter. You were a victim of circumstance in a matter of time and place.
