"@AnsarKhanMLive: Wings have signed GM Ken Holland to a four-year extension through 2017-18."

Hopefully babs is next.

Unf***ing real

constant downslope since 2009 and yet 4 year extension

 

4 years ago we could have had the Captain and Kenny as VP so disappointed

Honestly, I'm disappointed.  

 

Holland has pretty clearly run out of ideas these last few seasons, so I don't have a lot of hope for significant changes to rebuild the franchise over the next 4 years.  

 

Who knows though. Maybe he'll finally realize the crap he's done lately isn't working? Maybe??  

 

 

If I were Babcock I'd start looking to other teams.

He's got ideas, mostly involving Cleary. Just because you don't approve of them and they don't work seems to be non-issues with the Illitches.

Best signing yet. Hollands offseason acquisition is himself. His deadline acquisition will be Babs.

I'm sure he is already putting Mario's number on speed dial.no way he now re -signs with this team and I really don't blame him his job is getting harder and harder each year

That was pretty much a given anyway.

 

 

How could you not do a better or at least comparable job? he never does anything at all.

You're right....being a GM is as easy as NHL 14 makes it out to be, what was I thinking?

With Babcocks comments earlier this summer it seems like he may have been waiting for this before a re-sign.

Also, once again Yzerman and Hollands contracts expire at the same time. Quite convenient for us.

4 more years of not having an enforcer or tough to play against team plus no direction.I feel so bad for or two superstars not only are they wasting their prime now also the last years of their career without another cup too bad

I honestly don't think the guy is a bad general manager - he's proven just the opposite over the years. I just think some aspects of the game have passed him by - namely making moves and having a good relationship with other general managers.

That being said, results are results. Regardless of his intentions, Holland hasn't made too many impact moves of late. The ones he's tried to make haven't turned out well. I'm not overly thrilled with the term, but I guess we'll see how it goes. Bonus is if this gets Babs to sign on for some term, otherwise it's kind of "meh" for me.

Seems a little lengthy given the recent direction of the team under Holland, but I never really anticipated the Red Wings not keeping Holland around. I guess if the kids pan out within that time frame it might turn out pretty well because the Wings are essentially banking on that now with Holland's poor track record lately signing free agents and making trades. 

 

I still don't believe Babs is coming back, though.
