Just asking because I think we're starting to see some true colors.

I won't even vote for now.

Ken Holland, maybe, maybe not. Scouting staff and Illitch's wallet, a definite yes.

What he said. I think Holland has made some really good staffing decisions, and I think he's really dropped the ball. I vote more for Mr. Ilitch, first and foremost, and then our rockin' scouting staff. (Go, Scotty!)

Holland and his scouting staff (note: Holland has been part of/the king of the scouting staff for a while) as well as Ilitch's money being able to KEEP the players that the Wings have picked up, and those players the Wings have acquired in the draft and via trade or free agency have been very loyal to the team and willing to stay for the most part (see Yzerman, Larionov, Osgood, etc.)

Definately, it's no one factor. You've gotta hand it to Ilitch for absolutely giving his all to ice a competitive team, he loves to win. Jimmy Devellano and the scouting staff deserves a ton of thanks for helping draft/aquire some of the best in the league.

I'd say the jury is still out on Ken Holland. He might've been good as a scout. But GM? We'll see.

I vote "Other".

When I asw the title of this thread I thought, "Wow that's not even a debate." I was very surprised when the only possible answer was missing.

The person more resonsible than any other for the Wings success in the last ten years is :

Steve Yzerman.

My bad............Of course Stevie should have been a choice.

I guess I was just being angry is all. I just see Ken Holland in a different light without the big wallet in his back pocket is all.

(Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can make a business work with unlimited resources......make a mistake? Spend it away! POOF)

My bad.........

We can just put your vote in a write-in for Stevie.

Ya gotta admit though ----- there are some close results up there on this poll......

Jimmy D., Brian Murray and Bowman -- I give Holland some credit for 01/02 but little before.

No brainer here....Scotty Bowman

Excellent point Vladinator! Scotty soooo much more than Holland or Dellevano!

I split my vote between Stevie & Scotty.

Funny the NYRangers spent just as much money in the last 10 years as we have why haven't they had the same success?
