Yeah I mean move up and become vice president of hockey operations, let the Captain, Lombardi, Shero or Chiarelli take over for him.
I remember before Babs signed his last contract he was concerned that by staying too long in one place his message might become stale. Could this be the problem with Holland?
If it was just one move, it wouldn't be a big deal but we've seen a series of activity and maybe even worse inactivity that has led me to be concerned.
We got nobody to replace Rafalski, nobody to replace Lidstrom(not the player, since he is irreplaceable, but the production), Pav and Z are getting up there in age and no replacements are coming. Nyquist spent the first half of the season in the AHL, and we are lucky to have Tatar on the team, because for it not for his whining Holland wouldn't have given him a chance.
It's not all doom an gloom, we still have a good team and the future looks fairly bright, but I just think Holland is no longer that shiny penny. Take the promotion and let someone else be the GM.
