#2618171 Free agents this off season

I should have put money on this. Holland says he likely stands pat and goes out and gets the big fish. Other years he says he will be active and does nothing lol

6 mil good lord

 

Higher cap hit for short term. Good contract.

Landing Shattenkirk would be best case scenario, but I'd definitely rather see Holland sign Green over Franson any day of the week.

Can we terminate Weiss?


#2614263 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by Helmethead on 13 June 2015 - 10:01 PM

If Kenny is giving up Mantha and a 1st can't he do better than Phaneuf? I hope so.

Well this makes Quincey's deal look not so shabby.

I'm ready for the offseason to start, can these teams stop playing 7 games? Lets get the season over with.

Is this why Kenny Holland almost always offers some type of role within the organization after they retire?

This is insane. Let the guy go. We've made it past the first round once in the last five years, we obviously need some changes. 



You think that our actual roster can do better without Babs?!?!
I agree that we need changes... but ROSTER changes.

We have a ton of leadership in the locker room that goes a long way, I don't see too much changing. Losing Babs will be a transition but not like what your making it out to be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Losing babs for say someone other than Blashill could actually bring a whole different change. Coaching style is an important aspect in this league. If we end up with the likes of Tortorella (just an example), that could dramatically change the locker room and on-ice work ethic and discipline. 

 

Our best bet is Blashill because he's been groomed to work in the same system as Babs. I still think Babs is the best option. Except of course the options are his to take not the Wings. 

 

The point is, there will definitely be a change in atmosphere with a new coach. Good or bad, who knows. But a coaching change does have an big impact. Especially in this league.

Classy move by Holland. Still hope that Babs will be back

If he stays or goes I wish him the best.


#2606116 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 May 2015 - 01:25 PM

Nice to see Mantha responding a lot more thoughtfully than Jimmy D did.  

 

I can imagine Holland facepalming when he heard Devellano's comments.

He played over 80% of the regular season games and all of the playoff games so far.

 

I'm not necessarily in support of the comment - at the least, the "very, very, very" could have been excluded.  But, 'disappointing' seems... appropriate.  Who knows what motivates this kid, though?  Maybe it lights a fire under him and he lights Rockford up in the next series.

62 of 82 is between 75 and 76%.

 

He played 3/4ths of the season while trying to come back from a broken leg and adjust to pro level hockey. His stats (62gp,13g,18a,33pts) are actually really similar to Tatar's (58gp,16g,16a, 32pts) first year in GR. I'm not overly worried yet.

Pretty stupid comments by him no matter his intentions. There are much better ways to motivate a player than by completely dismissing him after one half of one pro season.
