He's a first line winger for the Sens. He should score more than Alfie and Cleary combined. But using health as an excuse for him being "lazy and all" is BS. And calling Holland an idiot is really poor form. Hence my Cleary playoff comparison. Obviously, I'd take Ryan over Cleary any day. I'd take him over Bickel too, and we know what a playoff beast he was. I'm just calling crap on the injury excuse.
Signing Sammy and cola for two years. Resigning cleary and miller. Signing Alfie.
Has led to Tatar being on bench, Nyquist in minors, and having to use a buyout on cola.
Letting fil walk for nothing was stupid....pretty much everyone agreed we should trade him at trade deadline. And I personally thought replacing fil with Weiss will be a wash. But Weiss could end up being an improvement.
And calling a star forward lazy after one down year is stupid. Then gov find out its because he was sick? Eben worse. So yes in short term Holland has been an idiot. Now is he calling all the shots and get all the blame or part? I'd assume he is but we don't know what goes on behind the scenes.
