Anyone doubting that Nill was responsible for all our good moves over the last 5 years and Holland all the old player re-signs?

Yes me, just like Howard is not responsible for every win and loss, Nill nor Holland are completely responsible for every successful draft/signing.

 

It seems more to be you are assigning credit to Nill for good signings and blaming Holland for bad ones.

 

Who in the boardroom said sign Brunner last year and who said don't bother, who said get Sammy and who didn't?

Who was behind drafting your boy Mrzak, was that all Nill and Holland was like "Nah, we don't need him", but the team went with Nill over Holland? 

 

You have as much of a clue about that as I do, which is exactly none!

 

What if Sequin never improves and Erikkson scores 40 playing with Krejci and Lucic?

 

You seem to arbitrarily assigning credit and blame and also assuming a lot about the future.

 

Getting Horcoff from the Oilers, and a Sequin the Bruins were begging to trade is not the same as getting Stamkos from TBL and that is what you are making it out to be like.

 

Nill has made some splashy moves in a third tier market with a lot less pressure than doing it in Detroit.

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Nill is definitely being "active."

 

I'll give him that.
