#2192909 Holland Appreciation Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 June 2011 - 09:30 PM

I appreciate what Holland has done in the past (even though a lot of that credit should go to Ilitch's money, Bowman, no salary cap, Yzerman and Lidstrom).

However, I haven't been too keen on his unwillingness to make deadline moves the last two seasons, coupled with the Modano and Hudler acqusitions, and now this Ericsson overpayment.

In sports, it's what have you done for me lately. That's the way thinking should go, otherwise teams won't ever progress anywhere by living in the past.

#2190606 Reports: Hulsizer Pulls Out Of Phoenix

Hopefully, they'll move to Saskatoon (the Paris of the North), and the Wings can continue their move to the East.

Not at all surprised. One can only ram his head into a wall so many times... I just hope the highest (or ONLY) bidder is Quebecor and this whole charade is put to rest. !Vive les Nordiques!

Now there are whispers that Detroit is out of it as they are uninterested in making a second offer.

Hardball. I like it Holland.

I agree. Holland made his offer, if Jagr doesn't like it, oh well, Holland has better plans with that $16M than to give $4M of it to Jagr. Far better players out there to offer $3M-$4M to instead of and younger than Jagr... I am ok with him being a Red Wing, but only on Holland's terms. I'd rather see most of that cash spent on the Defense...

jagr has always been slow, I really don't think he can keep up with the NHL game anymore, remember when brett hull signed with phx and retired after a few games????

also i think babcock and jagr could not co-exist. babcock demands the most out of his players, jagr is lazy and always has been...

Babcock vs. Jagr would be epic.

Babcock doesn't appear to like Hudler too much, but at least Hudler works hard. When he doesn't, you get his performance the first couple months of last season. Jagr is the epitome of a floater who has always gotten by on natural talent. Which has worked fine, given his sick combination of strength, speed, and skill. But now he's 40. And still a floater. Doesn't have the same speed, skill is down... and he doesn't have that overpowering strength he once had.

Although why not sign Jagr and Vrbata, and we could have the best Czeching line in the league!

Except he can.... sigh.

Reason players have to wait for July 1 is their contracts. Jagr doesn't have one.

"Svoboda said he's been made aware that Jagr can't sign with an NHL club until July 1. He didn't say which NHL team his client might play for."

Jagr Speaks with Lemieux

Sigh...according to his agent, he can't...sigh.

Everything i've read leads to Pittsburgh.

Wings: Likes our playing style better, says it fits him best.
We have the only offer to him and have let him know we're interested.
Lidstrom endorsed the concept of him coming here.
Babcock reached out to him.
Has the opportunity to play with Nick in his (most likely) final season
Would line up with Datsyuk and/or Zetterberg - which he has mentioned himself as exciting

Pens: Chance to go back to his NHL roots
Owns a home there still (was too lazy to sell it)
No offer yet, GM has decided to discuss the idea internally more before making a decision.
Crosby still has injury concerns
Malkin is coming off major knee surgery

He certainly has his options, but don't be surprised if he accepts Holland's offer before July 1st. Holland means business and has shown Jagr that the Wings feel he would be an asset here. I still say it's 70/30 odds for the Wings.
