I'm certain Holland has better use for that $$$ he would've spent on Niskanen...What that is I dunno.

What the hell is Holland doing?

Screwing himself. Probably in more ways than one.

I can't see how much longer Ilitch is going to be willing to watch us sit idle during free agency when we have glaring holes on the back end.

Blah. I'm pissed. Literally, no one wants to sign here. I bet you Holland did offer him the same amount but he didn't want to come here. Can't keep blaming Holland. We're not a destination anymore.

Okay, I'm going to try to think of the positives:

We get to see what the kids can do.

We'll have ample cap space at the trade deadline if we're still in the playoff mix.

@reporterchris

$40 .25M over seven years from #caps for Matt Niskanen, to be precise.

Wow that's a VERY reasonable pricetag for a guy like Niskanen glad we didn't do a whole lot of nothing to fix this team.

This team went from being the elite of the elite to behind the pack to a trainwreck ,. thanks Holland...move up already and

stop running this team like a small market team, we are the DETROIT RED WINGS ORIGINAL 6 FRANCHISE WE WANT A PLAYER we should get him ! god I wish we had Nil, Yzerman, Lombardi, Chiarelli...This will for sure be Babcocks last year behind the bench and I don't blame him one bit, even he signs with Pittsburgh

kick your own f****** Ferrari tires

FOR UNDER 6 MIL A YEAR

Hate that 7 year length though.

Me too. I want to know if Holland wasn't willing to pay that much per year because it seems fairly reasonable. The reports all along were that seven years wasn't scaring Holland away from Niskanen.

Unfortunately, I probably know the answer. Holland more than likely got outbid again.

That is a perfect reason to blame him. Why aren't we a destination anymore? Probably falls on the GM not making the team a legit contender since 2010 right?

I'm glad we stood pat on this one. A guy who's had one good season gets a bucket load of money. Meh. I'd rather give Sproul and Ouellet a shot.

OK, shows over. Turn on the World Cup, have a drink, and forget about KH's inaction for a bit.

How much longer? As long as the streak continues, that's how long.

Wouldn't that fall directly on Holland?
