f*** Ken Holland...if any of you defend this guy, then you are just as much re-re that he is...

I am done. This ******* idiot has lost it. He should be fired right now. I will not watch this garbage anymore. I have put too much into this as a fan. Z should ask for a trade today. His talents are wasted here. Hey, its ok, we'll get Cleary and Alfie...

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.

Once again I will say Quincey has had his moments of solid play (I defended him this past season in a thread that asked which Red Wing got more than his fair share of heat), but when he screws up, or has a bad game - it seems at the worst possible moment...Then again - is there any 'good' moment to screw up :lol:

Can we seriously get a "We the people" petition going?

I've generally been quiet and tried to avoid any sensational posts...but damn...Quincey again, with a raise? I would have been happier signing no one. Was Jim Nill the real brains of this operation?

This is how bad of a destination Holland has made Detroit... Erhoff signs for $4M and Boyle for $4.5M... Kyle F'ing Quincey for $4.25m? Are you serious? Really? Really? Where is that guy from the Arby's commercial? Really?!?!

I'm not even joking about this. I would like to start a petition. Someone has to be held accountable and unfortunately it's the guy at the top.

Actually, we'll probably be a middle of the pack team again. Woohoo exciting.

Worst place to be in hockey. The Wings are turning into the Calgary Flames. Lingering in mediocrity and Holland is content to keep the playoff streak alive. Honestly, it will never happen, but shouldn't the Wings consider moving Z and/or Pavel? They aren't true contenders and aren't bad enough to get high draft picks to make an immediate impact (or they rot in Grand Rapids for four years anyways). I don't know, after today, I'm at a loss. Feel like it might be time to just tear it down entirely and rebuild.

Ken just bought the same used car that didn't work well for him at first and payed it even more.That's brilliant strategy.

Obviously I'm disappointing we didn't get better players...but am I the only one who doesn't think Quincey is THAT bad? If Holland can trade for a top 2 defenseman like he said was his backup plan was without giving too much away I'll be happy to have Quincey. He is a serviceable bottom 4 defenseman.

What a pathetic GM Holland has turned out to be. To bad we couldn't get rid of this ******* scrub of a manager during the lock out..

I'm not quite as freaked out as most on this forum. Quincey is an overpay, we don't have much else to do with the money so it won't really matter.

That said, I could definitely get on board with blowing the team up. Trading Z and Pavel would net us some very nice picks/prospects....combine those with our current crop of young players and Detroit becomes a very dangerous team in 3 to 4 years. My biggest fear is that we continue this "rebuild on the fly" (which to date I've generally been supportive of as I assumed FA's still wanted to sign here) and end up as a mediocre team for the next decade.

I think he started to turn it around later in the season. But he will not help the team reach another level and that is what we are supposed to be striving for. We couldn't get it even close to done last year with the team we had, so why the hell are we going the same old played out strategy. If they continue down this path of apathy I hope the fans show their distress by hitting the pockets of this ******* disappointing team..

Holland would trade them for a 2nd and 3rd respectively. Maybe call Dave D. with the Tigers before making any trading decision.

are we in some sort of time warp?

is this July 1st, or April 1st? b/c Holland's gotta be pranking us with this signing

unless this is part of some epic sign-and-trade deal, then.... crap

He won't make a deal...he's had chances to make a deal to shock some life into the team yet he will not grab his testicles and make a HARD DECISION that has the best interest of the team in mind

We should definitely consider moving Pav. We'd get a decent return for him and it would help the rebuild a lot. I almost want us to miss the playoffs next year. We're stale. The FO needs a wake up call and missing might give it to them.

This is a broken record, but if Pav and Z have a healthy year and Weiss doesn't turn out to be a bust we have a pretty good set of forwards with the young kids and if we do make a trade we should have a better team this year.

Two seasons ago we came within a single goal of beating the Stanley Cup winners. Last year was s***ty, but look at our injuries we had. We're not as bad as people think.
