"I'm open for business over the next year or two," Holland said.

 

he's crazy.... 

In other words, 6th round pick for Green, no other movement.

No, this is not a meltdown. AnnetteForLife had it wrong. It's being mad at Kenny being Kenny. We've gone from I will sell assets for picks and cap space at the deadline to I'm open for business for the next two years. SMH.

I hope we are able to get a decent return for all the guys we have on the block. Right now, it seems a lot of teams that can overpay, are overpaying. Holland needs to get aggressive on the phones and throw our guys out there.

KH watch : trying to get Ray Bourque for Larionov and top prospect Grigorenko.

Why is he talking about the next year or two?? That quote scares the crap out of me. Seems like he's already putting out the fires for not selling at the deadline.

:eh: I'm so confused... I thought for sure the deadline was tomorrow...

Yep another deadline will come and go. Everyone try to act shocked when AA is traded for a third and we get the KH treatment concerning the rest. Dude should have been fired years ago, he’s the worst.

Or he's trying to strengthen his bargaining position with other GMs who might otherwise try to take advantage of his position if they think the Wings have to sell now....

I swear this organization is more concerned with the damn Griffins than the Wings

That's what you got from that? Bertuzzi won't be officially sent down to Grand Rapids until after the Wings season is over. This is just so he is eligible to go on a playoff run with the Griffins. Nothing more...

Yup, pretty much this.

I don't buy it and I don't think anyone else will either. He's on an expiring contract with everything to prove and he's dealing in a seller's market. The ball is not in his court.

It really is laughable. People will literally find things out of nothing in order to criticize.

Wait... that would mean he has to sign a new contract with us.

I would be shocked if KH is not back next year.

“If it’s not this time period, and it’s not at the draft, then the reality is, it’s probably a year from now,” Holland said. “My mindset isn’t so much about 2017-18 and ’18-’19. It’s about ’19-’20 and trying to acquire assets that I’m hoping can impact this team down the road.

It's confirmed, KH is crazy....

Ya, so what happened to getting a prospect the will make the team next season. This guy thinks we're fools. He isn't getting any bites, so he's posturing. "Oh, I don't really need to worry about the next two years, I want to sell assets for 2201!"

First, most deadline deals are on deadline day anyway.. put away your torches and pitchforks for now. 

Second, isn’t “assets that can help this team down the line” exactly what everyone wants? Why the complaints about the Holland quotes if he’s finally trying to rebuild? It doesn’t sound like he’s making excuses in advance.. it sounds like he’s trying to get the best deals he can to help us down the line rather than giving players away on the cheap, just to get rid of them. Don’t let your existing biases read into the quotes wrong.

Fair enough, but most of our biases are formed from the incompetency the last decade.

Right. I get that, and I don’t blame those with these biases.. there are some moves/contracts i haven’t agreed with either. I’d just like to see a little less overreaction in any fanbase that I consider myself a part of, that’s all.
