Then around 3 p.m. Eastern time, the sound you heard was everyone’s jaw hitting the floor at the same time, because Paul Holmgren totally went off the deep end.

Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, and their more than $110 million in combined salary through 2020 and 2022, respectively, were traded about 35 minutes apart. Then they signed 31-year-old Ilya Bryzgalov for nine years. None of it, seemingly, made any sense.

(Of note: Holmgren seemed genuinely upset to have made the deals at the press conference, so one gets the feeling this was all coming from way upstairs, which is stupid and inexcusable.)
