...and that's that...Holland on 97.1...

 

But Holland is staunch on this: The Red Wings are not burning things down and starting from scratch. He doesn’t think they need to.

“We’re going to look at (things) this summer and figure out a way to get back in the mix. It’s a fine-line league, and right now, we’re (nine) points out of a playoff spot — it’s not like we’re 29 out,” Holland said.

Holland is delusional. 

Also, so much for McIlrath coming up to Detroit. 

Mcilirath will come up. Holland didnt add him just for kicks and giggles. We have a lot of smallish pucking moving Dmen coming through the pipes. He should compliment that nicely.

Did you listen to the audio? He was acquired to be in GR and help the development of the young players down there by being tough....in GR. 

No im out eating lunch at the moment.

Thats not a bad plan. He can sit on the right side of Hicketts and Hronek.

Kronner will be injured again in t minus a few games. Mcilrath will recieve a look.

If he can some how get us Patrick and Trouba, I dont disagree with this. Though I dont see it happening.

If he could do that, without trading the 1st, AA, Mantha or Larkin, then ya, I'm in. But....

Well the first would have to be Patrick, if we landed Patrick though I think one of Larkin or AA are dispensable for Trouba.

There was talk about DD being on Winnipeg's radar. I would also give up DD and a future pick for Trouba. IMO Trouba has a ceiling as a 1A d-man, DD has a ceiling as high end top 4 D-man.

Quote

“To me, the reason everybody wants him is they know the kid’s potential moving forward. He’s a third-line center that could be very good,” said Osgood. “Listen, he could have an unreal year next year and score 20 goals and we’ll call him the comeback player of the year, right? So, let’s not get ahead of ourselves and quit on Riley Sheahan.”

Who is this Osgood fellow and how did he get so smart?

His rebuild time line always changes. I'm so over this. He did what he could this trade deadline, earned a solid B and saw how poorly constructed this team was for over 60 games now, if that doesn't scream rebuild to him, nothing will and for that reason alone I want Chris to throw the bank at the captain next year.
Holland has made it absolutely clear that he doesn't want or believe in real rebuilds but this team really needs one so there is a miss match hopefully ownership is seeing that too.

Yesterday I was optimistic, today I'm scared he signs another veteran to a ridiculous contract in the off season

Look, the reason why this gets on people's nerves is because the point of this board is to have simultaneous conversations about all things Red Wing related. What unfortunately happens, is the majority of the threads get turned into "Ken Holland" threads and detract from other conversation. 

Don't take in personally, I welcome all posters as it just adds to the discussion. It was no different from the summer time when EVERY thread turned into a Helm thread, or 2/3 years ago a Cleary thread. There are certain posters that just repeat the same narrative in every thread they post in.

I get it, just found it amusing that it became an issue. Was hardly the only person traipsing down that rabbit trail. It's all good, I'm not offended in the least. Just happy to talk hockey.

While we're "nine points out" I still feel just making the playoffs should not be the goal. Not to mention the parody... there are literally only 2 or 3 teams completely out of it right now. In fact, I think only Colorado & Arizona are out for sure.

Like I said, I'm willing to see what he does in the draft & even free agency, but I don't put much hope in his plans anymore.

"We're nine points out" is going to become my favorite Holland quote.  "It's not like we're 29 out" may be even better.  :lol:
