Yea, why have confidence in Holland? All the playoff appearances, the Stanley Cups as recent as 2008 and the finals in 2009. I mean, geez, he really has lost it. I give up. You win.
I agree, people keep coming up with this lame argument that he inherited the team from Bowman..well no s*** he did..everyone inherits a team from someone. Kenny was lucky as hell to get his from Bowman. Its the same lame argument people used to make about Ozzie, " he's just a product of his team, he's not that good". Well what did you expect Ozzie to do back then , " Mr Holland, I don't wish to play for this team you've put in front of me, they are too good and I don't want people to think I'm maybe better then what I am". He still had to stop enough pucks to win everynight and he did a good job of that. Does Kenny have flaws..of course he did but he's done a pretty good job of carrying on the legacy of this franchise. Sometimes I wish he had a little itchier trigger finger but on the other hand he's kept this team competitive pre cap and post cap and as fans what more can we ask for?
The only thing that makes tonight's loss somewhat tolerable is the fact the Nucks have given up 5 to Anaheim halfway through the game. Start Schneider, trade Luongo..hold up maybe keep Lou, trade Schneider..ah crap who knows...Can't wait for the controversy to start.
