What he refers to as "the process", all that means is that he isn't done tinkering with the 3rd and 4th lines and 5th and 6th defenseman. The real money players. All hail the Manny Malhotras and Sami Pahlssons and Chris Higgins and Marco Sturms and David Booths and Maxim Lappieres...in the Mike Gillis era of Canuck hockey.
I find your constant drooling over Holmgren's balls rather funny, the guy has been in his job longer than Gillis, throws around those brass balls you love and has yet to win a cup.. In the end, the two are actually pretty similar in what their teams have accomplished. I wish Gillis had done a few things differently this year (keep Coho, lose AV for e.g.) but still until Holmgren actually puts a team together that wins a Cup - backstopped by Bryzgalov who has never done jack in the playoffs, have fun with that - I don't see how turning to Holmgren puts Gillis in a bad light. Try Holland, Chiarelli, Shero...you know, a gm who has won a cup....maybe their balls aren't brass enough, they just win.
