Line 1: Thank you for calling Little Caesar's Pizza, how can I help you?

Line 2: This is Ken Holland, how much for a large Pizza?

Line 1: $10

Line 2: Too rich for my blood, goodbye.

The following day in the Free Press, "Well I worked the phones but nothing made sense".

I, for one, am glad Kenny wouldn't accept getting ripped off and paying double what something is worth.

Me too but its been 5 years now and we are/already have been wasting the last years of Lidstrom and Datsyuk. When Kenny gets around to not being afraid to gamble while he still can it may be too late. Edited by achildr1

Yzerman traded for Ben Bishop. Good move by Yzerman.

I can't help but think that Ben Bishop has been a product of good defensive teams though.

I tend to agree with what Holland is saying. There are no top 6 forwards or top 4 dmen out there, so what's the point? Adding another aging 3rd or 4th liner isn't what this team needs. With the reduction in the salary cap next year and the buyouts that can take place this summer, I'd rather stand pat than make some desperate move that guarantees us nothing. So what will everyone be saying if Pitt doesn't win the Cup? Or Boston? Or Chicago? Or Vancouver? They're all favorites, but only one team is going to take it, and it's possible none of them will.

Vanek, Pominville, Yandle, and Gaborik are all available. But you're not going to get a sniff of any of them if you start by saying "I'm not going to trade any top prospects or my first round pick".

You know what's crazy, when you add a "dynamic" player to your team it tends to change the team's...dynamic. Strange I know, but doesn't anyone else feel like even a lateral move might be worthwhile here considering our current core doesn't seem capable of getting anything done?

What he says to the media, does not mean that's what he says to other teams. And Holland's actually came out and specifically said if he's making a move it's for a top 6 forward or top 4 defenseman. And you don't go after those guys if you aren't trading firsts and top prospects.

I really think getting rid of Franzen would change the dynamic. I jist want to watch the Wings bring it like they care everynight...even if we're not as good. I'm tired of the same old, same old garbage.

i totally agree kipwinger but sadly holland is overlooking that he thinks going forward we need our milion prospects that might do nothing mind you in the nhl level and he thinks bert sammy and helm will come eback and get this team turned around which isnt going to happen he fails to realize we got a rough couple games coming up, back to back with sj and chi who both beat us last week and not to mention a team who cant stay consestent in scoring or d we wi be lucky to hold a spot thru the ast month because teams are going to come hard that are on the outside

Bad move by Stevie, do they really want another young unproven starter. Then they give up Conacher!? Bad trade.

ya I know, but seriously kenny dropped the ball on this one, I would have been willing to give up Mrazek for Conacher no problem

Tampa now has two unproven goaltenders and just lost a very good prospect, if you are willing to deal Conacher why not add a 2 and another prospect and try to get a great goaltender? WoW Stevie dropped the ball here.

yeaa no.

I like Conacher, but he's a small, speedy guy. Not exactly what we need in our top 6. Especially when Mrazek can be used for a more proven top 6 guy.

What?!? Then what...tell Howard to hit the door? Mrazek could probably be better than Howard and Bishop. I bet if Holland were actually willing to trade Mrazek we could get a piece we actually need.

Ouch Stevie. Ouch. Bishop is promising.. but for Conacher?? Ottawa has Lehner so Bishop was expendable.. this return was the best they could have hoped for.

Well if those are the going rates around the league, then I guess it's not double what they're worth. The market dictates what players are worth. It seems Mr. Holland wants to play in 2003's market and not 2013's. Yet another example of how he is past his prime.

tell howard to hit the door? Howard is with us for some time, Mrazek won't even figure into any plans for at least 5 years, so ya for the right price I would say trade him, only for the right price, and I think Conacher could be that piece

@TSNBobMcKenzie: MIN just pulled Johan Larsson and Matt Hackett off the ice amid spec - still unconfirmed - they could be traded. Lots of Pominville spec.
