After laughing with my dad for a while about the Wings 6-0 loss and the fact that we have 1 player under 25, it's time to start the Ken Holland quote thread.  

 

"I like our team"

 

"We may miss the playoffs this year"

 

"The power play is our enforcer"

 

 

I'm gonna go ahead and join my dad in hoping the Wings tank this season cause i'd love to see them get not only McKinnon but find a way to get Ryan Pulock from the Brandon Wheat Kings.  Here's a quote for Kenny after last nights game where none of our guys sharpened their skates...."it's time to get younger and draft a guy in the top 5 for the first time since Yzerman, and not give Yzerman our 1st rounder to make Tampa better."


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

We kicked the tires, but, ultimately, we didn't feel the price was right.

They would probably need to actually have a first round pick to draft McKinnon...... Also if they had the first overall pick wouldnt it be wiser to get Seth Jones? That guy is a beast and reminds me of lidstrom a little bit

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I thought Tampa got last years first rounder, which is why our 1st pick was Frk in the 2nd round was it not?

Here's a quote:

 

"Who said we couldn't win with Euro's?" -2008  (now you cannot Kenny)

 

Did he actually say that he made a mistake giving a 1st for Quincey? In not so many words.

 

I agree, if he actually got one of the top two picks, he should draft Jones. Not even he could screw that up, could he? I know he would give much consideration to Robert Hagg, but would he actaully skip over Jones to draft another Swedish defenseman?

 

If he were to use the 1st or 2nd overall for a forward here are some guys I think he would consider BEFORE MacKinnon...:

 

Aleksander Barkov

Elias Lindhom

Valeri Nichushkin

André Burakovsky

 

...and if he went with D, I bet he would consider these before Jones:

 

Robert Hägg

Rasmus Ristolainen

 

then we will hear the quote... "We really trust Haken Andersson and his assessment of these players, plus Nick Lidstrom put his stamp of approval on it, and last I checked, he wasn't so bad of a talent..."

 

I hope and pray that if somehow someway Holland gets a top 2 pick he does the no-brainer and drafts Jones, even if he got the #1, he does need to get Jones over MacKinnon.  Its a huge need, an offensive player can be address via UFA (Corey Perry.)

And with the 210th pick the Detroit Red Wings select Henrik Zetterberg


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

That would be fine, as long as with the 2nd pick, the Detroit Red Wings select Seth Jones (not Robert Hagg or Rasmus Ristolainen or any other Euro over Jones or MacKinnon)

correct. the first rounder we traded was for the 2012 draft.

Good, so if the Wings get a top 2 pick then they can draft McKinnon and instead of Seth Jones, just bring up Oulette, Sproul and eventually McKee and we're good....but i wouldn't quote Holland in saying that  :lol:

A guy not named Joe Murphy or Keith Primeau that is.

Jesus. It's a pretty bad time to be a Wings fan I guess, if we're already bashing Holland for making the wrong 2013, 1st or 2nd overall draft choice.

Talk about insanity.

A loss is a loss. Vancouver have 2 straight losses, so do the Rangers. All we need to do is win against Columbus and we have a better record than two of the cup favorites.

We knew they were going to be rusty, I just don't think we expected them to be THAT rusty.  I'll admit, I still have not realized the season started, at least it doesn't feel like it.  I'm going to consider the first week or two preseason, just so I have time to adjust back into this thing called 'watching hockey'.  Saturday night I couldn't help but sit there and laugh.  It was horrendous, and we all know it.  Let's just hope the boys play at least 60 seconds tonight.

We don't need 3 threads to discuss the game.  Please use this one for Holland quotes only.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
