In Topic: Hollands new contract a no brainer?

03 July 2014 - 02:30 PM

I would be surprised if Holland is given an extension.  No matter who you are, you don't get to sit on your hands for 5 years, do nothing and expect to keep your job.  

In Topic: When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

03 July 2014 - 08:17 AM

We already know what will happen.



"I don't know why they're not coming here"


Every "Fire Ken Holland" thread should include this post. lol  What a waste of money.

Lol He's said this so many times that I'm starting to believe he might actually be kicking real tires because he thinks its lucky or something. Stop kicking tires damn it!  Kicking tires brought in Tootoo, Bertuzzi, Ian White, Sammy and Weiss.  Whatever tire kicking he's doing, it doesn't seem to be working.

Agreed.  I would have been much more confident that Holland was going to do something smart by doing nothing after not being able to land Ehrhoff, Boyle, Stralman, or Niskanen. 


Was it really necessary to sign Q on July 1?  He wouldn't be there July 15th?  Aug 15th?

We weren't worried about getting signed Alfie yesterday?  Q is that important.

No.  Pure Panic Move.


Yeah Holland signed Quincey just to say he did something.  Nobody is snatching him up and if they do, so what?  I'm quite certain you can get someone else to do just as good (or bad).  Alfredsson should have been more of a priority than resigning Quincey.  These types of signings hurt the teams image.  "We didn't get the type of player we wanted, so we re-signed the garbage we were going to let go."  Yeah, watch the UFAs just come sprinting to us now.  :glare:

In Topic: Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

01 July 2014 - 08:35 PM

I'm not even sure what to say about this deal.  He's making 1.25 mil less than Niskanen per year.  I get that he didn't want to come to Detroit, but is Quincey worth that in any way shape or form?  Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Babcock will be gone soon, I think.  Why would Babs want to stay?  The team clearly isn't competing for a Cup, so why are Z and D here?  The good news is I think this will be it for Holland.  Another down year, first round playoff exit or missing the playoffs and he's going to be gone.  No way ownership is happy with the direction we're going in.  Holland's lack of activity over the years in free agency and during the trade deadline has scared off players from going to Detroit as they don't want to get stuck on a team that clearly isn't trying for a championship.  There is literally no sign of life from the front office and hasn't been for years. 


Maybe I'm just being too optimistic, but this will be the last Kenny "We kicked some tires and we like our team" Holland July 1st day we'll have to endure.  Maybe we'll get Ray Shero lol
