Hard to say, but Nill was here for all the poor signings that everyone hates, so there's that. 

Nill wasn't the final say though, Holland is the GM no matter what the situation. Holland blew it this year, easy as that.

Very true, but that means we need to give Holland credit for the things we've done right as well though.  Holland didn't completely blow the off-season - Alfredsson looks like a good signing, Mantha a great pick etc


"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

Holland is a fine GM but he is loyal to a fault. Cleary should NOT have been brought back because of our roster situation. Sammy was/is a mistake. The only thing that is saving Holland right now is injuries. Once everyone is healthy decisions have to be made

I would much rather have an over-loyal GM like Holland than a GM that pretends there's loyalty like Holmgren.
