These may not all be exact quotes, but you get the gist of what they're about. We've heard them on LGW a million times and made jokes about them. I was just wondering what your favorite is?

I'll begin with my favorite. "We like our team"

Fantasy Player Tree

"We got seven left-hand D. I love (to have a righty), but how do you get it?" Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said over the weekend at the NHL entry draft in Philadelphia. "It's great to have this fantasy; like (general manager) Kenny Holland would tell you, there's no tree. I've been all over him, but there's no tree to grab them off of, so we'll get what we get."

Here...here's your goddamned tree assholes:

"We would like to get a righty D. Can we get it ? I don't think so." That would be an honest quote from Kenny.

Really? This seemed like a thread worthy topic... Sad...

More worthy than the effort used to type your post...

I went for "A healthy Player X is our deadline acquisition" as we hear that one every year, even though every team has players returning from injury throughout the year so it means jack s***.

:sleepy: Oh brother. it's the internet. Sad is right. Learn to have some fun at our team's recent woes.

"We would like to get a righty D. Can we get it ? I don't think so." That would be an honest quote from Kenny.

That's a good one. I might include it.

Please do. Red Wings fans deserve to know the truth.

My favorite isn't listed:

"Today, I resign as General Manager of The Detroit Red Wings. I also plan on not pursuing another job within the organization. Thank you fans, thank you Dan Cleary. Thank you Firestone, BF Goodrich and Dick Cepek..."

I had to go with kicking tires. Holland says it as a default to every failure. Which lately happens quite more frequently than it should.

My vote: "I don't know why they're not coming here" because it demonstrates, more than any of the other quotes, just how out-of-touch Holland seems to be. The league might have passed him by.

This times one billion.

I don't know why they aren't coming here...

Well maybe because of all the former lowball offers, the unknown future of the best coach in hockey and of course two superstars with more and more injuries

Anyway Ken is the GM so he better finds out in a hurry you can't win without Ira's, especially when your best pick since almost a decade is number 15

I voted for "We like our team," but we need an option for all the above cause Kenny has used them all at some point in each of the last few seasons

"...we didn't like the terms" -or- "...it just wasn't a hockey move..."

Ah, yes it is a thread worthy topic.

Then don't post in it.

Please, tell me which thread I can post in, since every single thread is a Holland bashfest? Which threads can I even READ which aren't the same old whining.

And every day there will be new threads which will be Holland bashfests, as if a front page full of them isn't enough.

I get it, free agency was a let down, but its only taken 3 days and its already got really, really tedious.

Happens every year. And it never works. You can't "add" someone you already had. And obviously it helps to have everyone healthy. So it's sort of too obvious to be useful, and a lazy excuse not to make any other moves.

You can post in any thread you want or you don't have to it's call freedom of choice.

I like kicking the tires, here's why:

Everytime there is a Belle Tire anything I imagine their sponsorship is solely there to allow Ken Holland to spend his off hours in their stores kicking all their tires.

Well, you can take my hockey trivia threads.

They're fun and informative.

My favorite... all time and probably forever...

"Kids are not the answer"

It just has a ring to it after what Nyquist, Tats and Sheahan showed us weeks later. The irony is still hilarious to me.

I also like

"It's a tough league"
