I have lost all hope with Holland. How in the hell does anybody seriously think this moron is an NHL hockey player? Its July 1st and I already know how the upcoming season is going to go :evil:

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.

Except isn't Q headed for the 3rd pairing?

Kronwall - Ericsson

Dekeyser - Smith

Kindl + Quincey

Lash

oof.

If you don't see the second bolded part as an issue... something to worry or fret or freakout over... Well, then I don't know what to say.

Whatever. Get over it. Move forward. Hope for the best. Prove the haters wrong. Be thankful Detroit still has a team. Going to be hard to watch, but we aren't the Dead Wings again yet. Even if we are down the road, I'll still watch this team and support it.

I agree, but man, I feel embarrassed and sad at the same damn time.

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.

I personally would've rather seen kids from GR get their chance at the #5, and #6 spots on defense.

It's Holland's fault people don't want to play here? The Leafs and Caps are soooooo much better? The Rangers...I can get that, NY has a hell of a pull....but you will not convince me that the name "Detroit" isn't a bigger issue than the GM.

The imposed salary cap revealed how bad a GM holland really is. It's easy to get the right players when money isn't a barrier. The list of horrible signings coupled by the lack of improvement made gets longer and longer.

I gave Holland this Free Agency to prove me wrong but I'm convinced a change is needed.

The only argument people put up is the talent "he" finds deep in drafts. My reply is that scouts find these players, not the GM.

It's a sad day when we are supposed to be excited for average Kyle Quincey. And yes....he's barely average since he contributes NOTHING offensively.

No offense, but did you watch Quincey at all this past season? The guy is a void. He makes his partner worse. And the GM just paid him 4.25 million.

I was fine with standing pat - I wanted Boyle, but we missed out. When every one was saying, "Niskanen or bust", I was promoting several less popular options. Heck, even though they didn't get Niskanen, Boyle, Stralman, etc. Holland essentially told Gilbert to go sign with Montreal. The next best alternative is an exhaustive list of options, and somewhere near the bottom is "re-sign Quincey". It's an awful move.

He really jacked this one up.

Look on the bright side guys, without Quincey we wouldn't have a huge anchor dragging our team down!

This is good in the long run.

Quincey will shatter the shin pads of the opposing teams forwards causing lower market teams to go bankrupt

We will be the premier target for free agents at this point.

Holland = GENIUS

That would be more frustrating to watch than Kindl and Lashoff in these past playoffs. Pair a kid with someone with experience and defensibly responsible.

Kronwall-E

Deke-Smith

Q-Ouellet

Lashoff

That doesn't look as bad as many here are making it out to be. Not as good as it could have been, I agree. But Quincey was very good late in the season and the playoffs. If he can keep that up, I'm fine with him being here. It's just 2 years. Plenty of time for kids to get some experience and try and steal his roster spot in 2 years time. Not the end of the world, folks.

As I've stated in several threads, comments complaining about how fans are reaction will be deleted and will result in suspension.

Stay on topic.

And no...Quincey isn't as bad as most of you think..he probably plays the body around the cage (position and leverage vs a stick in the ribs) better than anyone on the roster. Is he an offensive dynamo? no...he is not, but he isn't the disaster most people portray him to be

So, Holland fails miserably and his fallback is to give a raise to a d-man no other team wanted to sign early in free agency? He's the most predictable and non-risk taking GM in professional sports right now.

I haven't been on the bandwagon before, but today I'm there. Ken Holland needs to go.

Holy. Hell.

I thought they weren't even considering bringing him back, let alone giving him a raise

figured they would've at least tried some other options first, not just give up after the first day and settle for a guy who clearly isn't what we need in the top 4

on top of a crappy work day, this just.... sucks
