I've been trying to hold back. I've been trying to think that this is the year Holland makes some real moves to get this team back into contention. After seeing some of the names that signed elsewhere and the prices they signed for, I'm completely ******* disappointed. f*** Holland. What a joke.

Damn you Kenny Holland...you offered better contracts but didn't do some kind of voodoo s*** to get guys to come here....seriously, WTF do you want Holland to do? He made better or equal offers and lost players to teams that are no better or worse than we are.

What exactly should he do?

So re-signing one player (whom, while he had a shocking first half, had a very very solid second) means we are doomed to the annals of hell for a while? Seriously? This team was injury depleted and still made the playoffs. The emergence of the kids nullifies the signing of a solid stay at home defensemen. All I can say is meh. So we struck out in free agency today. Big deal. This team has more than enough to be optimistic about right now. Getting a known commodity won't hurt us. And yes I know, everyone here will say the Q sucks. And they'd be right about his first half performance, wrong about the second, in which he was one of our better blue liners

I must disagree. While I don't think he's dooming us to hell. Holland didn't just bring him back... He gave him a raise!!

...and I don't care if he had a better second half. It still wasn't enough.

I will agree that Quincey can be a solid Dman on some nights...Just that when he, and Smith screw up - they seem to do it at some of the most inopportune times.

No, it's what he should have done a looooooooooong time ago when he knew Lidstrom was retiring, etc.

The bottom pairing was the issue. Not Q. Quincey and Dekeyser were actually very solid together. Sure he is overpaid, but it's free agency. Everyone is. People really need to chill. Other UFA's didn't want to come here. Get over it.

I want Holland to do his job well. He's been flailing over the last several years. The reason they're not coming here is because players aren't excited at the prospect of playing for the Red Wings anymore. That's on Holland.

No one is saying his job isn't extremely difficult, but it's that way for 29 other GM's. As I said in another thread, replace Holland's name with Dan Cleary. Cleary outworks just about everyone on the team which is admirable but he simply doesn't get the results to be competitive at the NHL level.

Is that acceptable because he's a great guy who's trying with everything he's got?

I don't care how hard Holland tried. Results matter. He's not getting any.

The man got a raise. A RAISE.

Who cares? The other players went elsewhere. It's not like that money was gonna be spent elsewhere. I get being disappointed in not landing a big UFA today, but the amount of hate and overreacting going on in here is ridiculous.
