Well, just basing it on the last day or so, Nill traded a Swede and added an established player still only 21 and a cheap, defensively responsible center in Peverley for prospects. I can't remember Holland making any trade such as this.
So you do not like Swedes on teams, are you using that for your argument?????
Nill traded and All-star would have been a bit better way to start that, however that doesn't suit your argument as much does it?
That 21 yr old reportedly has off ice/maturity issues, and Rich Peverly is not exactly lighting the world on fire.
And that Swede has 4 times put up > 70 point seasons and was on pace for 60 last season.
Seguin stock has done nothing but go down in Boston, maybe that is part of the environment, maybe that is all on Seguin.
But Seguin has had one season that was as good as Ericsson's worst season.
Lets not judge Nill as some awesome NHL GM, until the regular season starts, heck lets even wait until he has a season or two under his belt.
Remember the should have kept Yzerman over Holland posts, everyone still want Yzerman over Holland as a GM?

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."
