I guess not.

But this is easily the worst offensive game we've had in the playoffs for many years.

Like everyone is saying. This is the worst wings team in over 2 decades.

Honest question. Do you think we will ice a better team next year.

If Holland is still the GM, no. We need fresh blood in this organization. A lot of it. The fish rots from the head down. You can't rid of Illitch, he owns the team. So, who's next?

Actually, Wings are playing a little better now, at least there is some passing now, there is still hope.

So it's settled.

Pizza boy fires Holland and we get a new GM next season.

Who are the available candidates? Obviously nobody with Holland's credentials, but at this point that doesn't matter since we need a change.

Not to jump on the bandwagon, but Holland needs to go. I'm sorry, but we've been coasting too long on the successes of the late 90s/early 00's teams, and part of that is letting Holland get away with not doing anything to improve the team season after season after season. Babs can only work with what Holland gives him, so our s***tiness isn't his fault. He can't make lazy, entitled, below average players look good. Babs needs a better team to work with, and the first step in getting there is getting a new GM.

And no, that doesn't mean getting Steve out of Tampa. When his current contract is up, I'd love to see him GM this team, because I ******* love the guy and want to see him back in Detroit. However I don't want Steve in charge of another Dead Wings-era lineup. I'd like someone else to suffer that ignominy so that Steve can take the helm of a winning, competent, capable squad.

Babcock needs to go to. He's got a gem in Nyquist and barely plays him. he constantly makes chances and plays with plugs. Brendan Smith's offensive and grittiness could have made a big difference in a series where the Wings D has been pathetic.
