3. Bobby Holik

What do you do when you have a hated rival with a star player entering the twilight of his career? Sign him to a five year, 45 million dollar contract of course!

Holik was never a great player. By comparison, Carl Hagelin‘s production during the 2014-2015 season was similar to Holik’s career average.

The worst part of this signing wasn’t even Holik’s production, but his attitude. He basically admitted to the Utica Observer-Dispatch that the trade was all “business” (aka money):

” It ( signing with the Rangers ) was business. I tried to stay in New Jersey, I couldn’t be sad to move on, my contract was ground breaking at the time”

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: [email protected]
