#2380394 Fear of the East?

What would be awesome is having a fourt line with just fighters. Put em out every start of a period against the top line. No head hunting just push em around a bit.
Or even after the team scores...we'll be the Detroit 'dread you'll see Red' Wings.

#2379962 Holland retirement watch?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 April 2013 - 09:23 PM

Well I would imagine that Holland has the last word. If Nill was always second guessing everything Holland proposed he probably wouldn't be around anymore so I imagine he has his own ideas but hasn't had his chance to run the show. 

 

You mean, there's a chance that Nill loves enforcers and thinks Cleary and Samuelsson are lucky to be playing in the NHL?

 

:sadlike:

He would be a good fit in Calgary after they fire Feaster.  

 

I wonder, though, how different Nill and Holland are.  They've been working together for a long time.  Seems like it's the same person with similar ideas on what the team should be.

I really didn't think he was, but after I saw his stats on TSN, I may be wrong about that.  He may be a 2nd line Winger after all.

 

If Dan Cleary is a second line winger, anybody is a second line winger.

And your point is what - that my posts are discounted somehow because of my user name?  I don't see how that is relevant at all.
 
Or are you just saying that you don't have a legitimate response and just want to go on being negative and raining on any parades that may spring up on the board?  And if someone doesn't like it, well then you'll just turn your negative comments to their user names?

 
I make my posts because I believe in what I say.  I don't need a legitimate reason to back up speaking my mind.    
 
The user name thing was a joke.  I make them occasionally to stay sane.

And what parades are you talking about? It's just me disagreeing with other posters. No one here is having a parade.

Hell, I would be really pissed if Holland offered that.  Pomminville isn't worth that.

 

He's not.  But Quincey, Sammy and Carlo Coca-Cola aren't worth the money and draft pick we gave up either.  

 

Holland does overpay, just for the wrong players.

I understand that.  It doesn't mean that people should feel obligated to take every opportunity to spread their doom and gloom every time a miniscule ray of sun shines through the proverbial rain cloud of negativity that is this board. 

 

This coming from a guy named barabbas.   :sleepy:

umm, not really. They hate losing Dorsett. And Brassard is currently tearing it up with New York tonight.

 

New York might have became a better team.

 

Gaborik also has a ton of injury history, how do you think we'd be feeling right now if his back/hip/groin started to act up?

 

I'm not saying Columbus will be better then us for the next 5 years, but they're at least sending a message that they want to win.  They have a young, hungry GM trying to prove himself.  Too early to call these moves or him a disappointment.

 

Many Wings fans are fed up with Holland and his ennui towards his job.  He's basically admitting that we're not all that good.  Much of it is his fault.   

 

Columbus has something to "potentially" look forward to, while we're looking forward to either missing the playoffs or getting bounced in the first round.  Not to mention, what may happen with Datsyuk in the near future.  It sucks.

How do you know that getting Gaborik will work out?

 

Doesn't matter.

 

Point is, they had the balls and initiative to make the move.  Took a chance.  Columbus of all teams.

 

Their fans (if they have any) are excited right now, while ours are pissed.  The ones not pissed are pointing at the banners and talking about past successes.

 

I want this franchise to remain great and relevant, not be one that used to be relevant, like Montreal and Chicago all those recent years.

Sunday was not a clear representation of hawks v wings. fluke game, took them to OT and SO in the 2 matchups already played.

 

And although its unlikely, why cant our offense just turn it on and get hot for a month. Once we get Z back thats hopefully a boost for filp and Brunner. Franzen is capable, just streaky.

 

Anything can happen.

 

Name me the last team similar to the 2013 Red Wings in style of play and talent, that won the Stanley Cup?

 

I challenge anyone here to answer this post.  
 

I'm tired of the anything can happen bulls***.

Can't believe Columbus is now more lucrative and hungrier than the Red Wings.

 

Holland should step down in the offseason.

If you all think getting Helm back isn't a major addition to the team, you're dead wrong. Who cares if he doesn't make a move!!!!

 

Yeah, Helm will be a huge addition.............................................................on the golf course in May.

But guys...can we really be surprised?  Ken "Status Quo" Holland has been doing this for years.  We have definite needs and money to spend and he sits on his hands.
 
Management gave up after Suter and Parise went elsewhere.  I didn't want to believe it, but that's what happened.  They threw in the towel.  Kenny said it himself.  He knew this team might not make the playoffs.  That's a lack of confidence.
 
And you know what?  It didn't have to be this way.  Instead of bringing the youth up and going after some players NOT names Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, he goes out and signs useless Band-Aids and essentially plays dice with the season.  They knew it was going to be a "transitional/rebuilding year" long before the season started.
 
Well you know what?  I'm not buying it.  That's just a fancy way of saying "lost season".

 
Yeah, it seems like Holland has built in excuses now to fail.  Some of them are legit excuses, but if he thinks the situation is so hopeless every deadline/offseason, maybe he should step down.
 
It looks like he can't handle being a GM in today's NHL, where there's a salary cap and parity, and players don't flock to Detroit like they used to.  

He always says the price is too high, but that's what prices are like now. It's the current market price. He says that and yet signs Sammy and Coca-Cola for contracts they don't deserve, and trades a first for an average player like Quincey.

Well, I guess that's the end of that.  He really WAS serious when he said that health would be our deadline moves.  I'm getting so tired of this.

 

If Holland doesn't make a move tomorrow, he should part ways with the team in the offseason.

I wonder if Mike Ilitch even knows there's a trade deadline tomorrow?

 

Or is he too busy blushing at the Tigers?
