#2538628 Holland interview with Mickey comment about a trade

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 07:38 PM

Eva was a legend.  I miss his super serious font, especially in the context of super serious font telling me Hudler can put up 70 points playing with Datsyuk.  It brought even more seriousness to his serious statistical analyses.


I'm just happy to not have the constant temptation to play classic Nintendo and Mario Bros...

I suppose he also put something into his coffee. :P How many goals did Roy let in that night again ?

Going to work when you're grieving is no doubt difficult.  But that's not something you get "rewarded" for, nor does it show loyalty.  That's life.


I agree.  But in addition to the whole dad dying thing, he also was a real good sport about starting the season on the bench after he had clearly played his way onto the team, as well as being a good sport about spending probably a year longer in the AHL than he needed to. 


Tatar, despite what some folks think, has had a really good attitude the entire time he's been in Detroit.  I think fans just get worried because he'd the kind of guy who says he's disappointed when he is, or pissed off, or whatever.  So they always think he's got an attitude.  He doesn't.  He's just up front about how he's feeling, which is unique for a Red Wing.

Kindl's gonna go on waivers cause they can't trade him and Smith will get 2nd PP time.

Then Kindl goes to a couple teams in the west and improves greatly - then Holland desperately trades a 1st round pick at the trade deadline for him and then Kindl stinks up the joint here again and gets re-signed for 4.25mill.

I think it was a great signing... Senior citizens should be respected in all aspects of society.


Hey, I guess they're right. Senior citizens although slow, and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose!

Any word on if we were lucky enough to get a NMC worked in?

Who else burst out laughing when they heard? :lol:


All Ken Holland has done this offseason is sign players for Grand Rapids...at least that's what we hope he's doing...

#2530678 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by kipwinger on 08 July 2014 - 05:54 PM

To answer both of you...


1.  The Legwand trade should have shown everyone the danger of trading good talent for expiring contracts.  And free agency just showed us that lots of NHL players would rather not sign here.  So it would be stupid to trade a more valuable asset (Tatar) for a more questionable player (Green).  There's a real good chance you lose a real good roster player for nothing. 


2.  Until Teemu Pulkkinen scores a single NHL point, there's absolutely no reason to assume that he's got more value to the team, or a higher ceiling, than the guy who just scored 19 goals and 39 pts. in his rookie year.  There's also no reason to assume that Pulkkinen can replace his production.  Assuming so would be dangerous, regardless of what your gut feelings are, or your eyeball tests, or anything else.


If you're going to trade Tatar, get good value for him, or keep him.  He was one of the few bright spots that our team had a year ago and he's only going to improve off his rookie year.  Trade him as part of a package for a top four defenseman under contract, or a top six forward under contract, or don't trade him.

I smell a Commie plot!  This has got to be Soviet payback for stealing Fedorov in '89.  Putin's replaced the real Ken Holland with a look alike, cloned in a jungle laboratory a la "Boys From Brazil". 

Commie plot you say?

Report: Holland found at Bell Tire looking confused ...repeatedly kicking tires. The report further states he will continue to kick tires at Bell Tire until his meeting with Dan Ceary at 6.

How does that saying go?  "If you love someone, set it free.  If it returns to you, lock the doors & don't take any of his agent's calls."
