  1. Like I said, if you want my opinions from 2008/09 they're somewhere in my post history. I have no idea what my ideas were. They'll have been better than Cleary and Williams though.
  2. They weren't all depth signings. He signed Jason Williams for example to score "20 plus goals." He signed Commodore for an enforcer even though he sucked at fighting. He signed Cleary for a man crush several times even though he sucked. Weiss was already on a downward trend when he was signed to that God awful contract and he sucked, and that definitely wasn't a depth signing. The rest of the crap was just blocking our young guns' chance to get some decent ice time on the 3rd/4th line. They were the only real moves I can comment on, because he barely made any. Best thing he ever did was sign Aaron Downey and Dallas Drake.
  3. I probably would have done a bit more than say "we like our team" every ******* year. I also wouldn't have signed rejects nobody else wanted like Dan Cleary, Jason Williams, Mikael Samuelsson, Dan Cleary, Mike Commodore, Stephen Weiss, Mike Modano, Dan Cleary...just to name a small amount of the trash that's been signed in the past 5 years or so. Probably would have at least tried to draft some players with a bit of balls to grind out some wins when the going gets tough. If you want to know precisely which players I would have signed instead in each year I'll have no doubt posted about those in detail at the time (been a member on here since 2006). I'm not going to try and remember who I thought was better 8/9 years ago, but feel free to search through my posts if you're that bothered. And hey, what do I know, I've only been right and talking sense for a whole decade. Holland is a lazy ******* scrub who contributed nothing except nodding when Hakan Andersson told him who to draft.
  4. Not my ways. There were a few of us "Holland bashers" that got ridiculed. Just because we were at the time a successful team so many couldn't see the truth that was staring right in front of them. Lidstrom. Holmstrom and Dats couldn't last for ever. Ah well. Go Cardiff Devils.
  5. Pretty sure I first called Holland out as a fraud way back in like 2008 or something. There were a few of us old guard who could see through all the scouting talent at the front to the lucky GM at the back. Don't even think Blashill is that much of a bad coach in all honesty. He can't physically get on the ice and make Sheahan an offensive hockey player. Anyways, the mighty UKRedWing thanks the NHL for banishing all the enforcers to the British ice hockey league. Last game I went to I saw the likes of Patrick Bordeleau and Brian McGrattan. Also old-Wings prospect Gleason Fournier. Even in our league he sucks.
  6. Awful. Has the word "little" in it. Although I guess that's pretty apt for the current roster.
  7. Poor Mitch. Was on the road to good things until he blew his ACL. Not really been the same player since.
  8. Just popping in to say it looks like the penny has dropped with a lot of people. Ken Holland is a clown who hid behind the success of Håkan Andersson for many, many years. With the majority of Andersson's players gone or on the decline there was never any real attempt by Holland for so many years to keep the Wings at the top, just a lot of cast away one-year rentals that and the never ending presence of Dan Cleary. He has literally waited to the point where we're on the cusp of becoming a team that won't even make the playoffs before he's decided he actually has to do his job and make us a better team...although his job is apparently for us to expect less, so then he's doing a better job without actually having to do anything? The guys a joke. Huge thanks to Håkan Andersson for giving us such a good team between 2006-10.
  9. Mitch Callahan. Blash loves the Mitch.
  10. Gonna be a sad day for me if Callahan gets claimed. I've followed his progress since the day he was drafted and have been waiting for the day that seemed inevitable in that he would get a regular spot on the Wings team. I think choosing someone based on a few incredibly crappy exhibition games is a flawed process, but what do I know. Not like Detroit has made mistakes in choosing it's roster in recent years At least we've got Cleary on the roster That'll be worth it if Mitch gets claimed. Something to laugh at.
  11. I have a feeling I'd hate Callahan if he was on another team
  12. Since when is Callahan an enforcer? Fighting =/= an enforcer. People don't half form some strange opinions on here.
  13. Not sure if serious?
  14. I said he was better than Cleary, who is projected as being nowhere in the NHL without his man-crushees. A 4th line agitator/mini-Holmstrom>absolutely nothing. Callahan brings skills that this team has lacked for a while.
