I like how people assume that Holland is just sitting on his ass doing nothing. I mean do people honestly believe that he hasn't actively pursued a lot of the FA's that have signed elsewhere? I mean there are 29 other teams in the mix and most often than not they have a more attractive package that they can offer that the Wings can't (depending on the FA of course).
For example, 1 guy I thought we could go after and possibly overpay a bit was Wisniewsky but obviously the deal the Jackets offered was out of the Wings league so they weren't willing to pay the price.
Fine if it will make everyone happy we'll give him an A+ for trying to do something, and then we'll give him a D- for not getting anything done with all these talks he's had. Also, I completely understand now. On one hand Ken Holland is a great GM and does no wrong. And on the other hand (same people say) all our players suck and are not worthy of trades or of value to other teams.
