does anyone think that Holland realizes he's made a large error in re-signing all these has beens to ridiculous deals ala Cleary, Bert, Sammy?

it saps the team of any youthful exuberance, speed, SCORING, etc.

I just wonder if he thinks he's done a good job the last few years

of course Alfie scores as I'm typing this lol

So if I predicted Miller, Alf, and Z to score, and if they all score, do I get curly fries for a prediction hat trick or do I just get to go to Arby's and predict that they'll have curly fries on the menu?

That's 2 I've called tonight.

Ok. Z, you're the other one I chose in my prediction. You're up.

I've gotta admit you're on a roll tonight. :D Really lovin' Alfie so far this season even when the rest of the line is bumbling.

Were John Scott a Euro, Cherry would be blasting him.

Cherry makes so little sense these days I didn't even really understand his defense of John Scott.

I think the Chicago series fooled Holland into believing the Red Wings are closer to championship contention than in actuality. So, instead of embracing the youth movement that got the Red Wings into that position during the playoffs, he continued to force veterans into the equation. I don't really have a problem with the Alfredsson move, but keeping Cleary was insanity when you have Nyquist around. Not to mention, the Samuelsson signing was a mistake all along and I don't think most of us needed hindsight to see that coming. The NHL thrives on speed now -- a huge reason why Brunner and Nyquist were so successful with Andersson on the third line in the playoffs. Now, the Wings have Abby and Cleary playing there tonight.

That was a mess of a period. Wow. After a pretty decent 1st I didn't think this team would once again fall back into a coma and get dominated.

Better 3rd please?

He's probably thinking "what is it about Tatar that is dragging this team down and what veteran can I trade him for?".

Thruthfully I think he expected us to be as hit with injuries as we've been the last 2-3 years, counting on that to solve any logjam problems. We'll get injuries eventually and maybe then we'll be glad we have a deep roster, but Holland HAS to realize it's a crazy situation to have a team that is struggling this bad when Nyquist is stuck in the minors for no good reason.

Z-D-Alfie

Babs didn't have a lot of patience.

And the Rags strike. Sigh.

That's the second time that Andersson has blown an assignment. He seems averse to using anything but his stick for disruption.
