Hindsight is always 20/20.


I'm not going to "blame" Holland for making a UFA signing that at the time seemed like a a great signing that 90% of us would have made.

Was it a bad signing....of course it was in retrospect.


That makes no sense.

That's his job. To be better at finding UFAs than a silly message board.

His job isn't to always be right, but to be right more than wrong and that hasn't been the case.

His job is to help us win cups and lately we aren't even close.

This is why I have no issue with Holland not signing UFA's, they have a tendency of being busts. Take 2013 for example, 3 of the biggest UFA's were Lacavalier, Wiess, and Clarkson. Every single one of them got big contracts, and every single one of them were busts.


The way to go is homegrown talent. Making a trade or signing a UFA can work, but it has to be the right player that you have no doubt will fit in your system.

But Holland signed one of them. He's had a lot of busts. You can blame Holland now.

I never get where this perception comes from. Yes, we didn't bring anyone new in from outside the organization last off-season, but..



Weiss, Alfie, Glendening


Coliacovo, Brunner, Tootoo, Gustavesson, Samuelsson,


Conklin, Commodore




So he's signed 1 good player?

You guys are making a lot of excuses for this guy.


To the person who said he's been as good as Jurco…Isn't he supposed to be WAY WAY WAY better than Jurco?!


Come on be honest with yourselves. It's been a disappointing first season. That's true. So, what's the issue?

Comments were probably not needed.


But does anyone really believe he isn't disappointing so far?


Wasn't he like the next Yzerman?


He barely scores in the AHL...
