#2602696 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 28 April 2015 - 11:48 AM

I was purely asking when does Holland get blamed for his bad moves. 
 
It's clear he doesn't get any blame for any bad moves. He can do no wrong in Detroit. 


I honestly had to check your profile to see if you were new here after reading these statements. When does Holland get blamed for his bad moves? The answer, around here anyway, is ALL THE TIME. Constantly. It inevitably leaks into 90% of our threads along with Jimmy sucking and Babs being an incompetent coach. He gets absolutely *dragged* if he so much as farts in the same room players are in because it negatively affects air quality and makes them play worse. Yours are not new sentiments, and frankly it is refreshing seeing the level-headed, rational responses.

Bottom line: Holland, like all humans ever everywhere, has made some mistakes. Some absolute stinkers. Should we replace him with someone better? Sure, I'm all about improvement. Who should we court that is clearly a better GM than Holland?

*crickets*

You're very pessimistic today, that's unlike you.


Sorry. Just seems we can never put the nail in the coffin these days. This back and forth stuff is bulls***. Hopefully I'm wrong and they get it back. There's a lot of game left.

@AshleyDunkak: Drew Miller on Jon Cooper accusing #RedWings of cheating: (1/2) Usually when things make someone not happy, theyre effective ..."

@AshleyDunkak: Drew Miller on Jon Cooper accusing #RedWings of cheating: (2/2) "Its the way we play, and I dont see if changing,

@AshleyDunkak: One more on Miller's response to Cooper's comments: "Maybe he's just trying to rile his guys or put a thought in the referees' heads."

And what would you propose?  Put robots in as refs?


Yes you totally read my mind. That is exactly what I would propose. It's the ONLY reasonable answer. *eye roll *

Video review. Make all goals/non-goals reviewable and issue one additional coach's challenge per game. Use it wisely, just like your time out.

That  Kate Perry sign from a Jets fan was just pure gold


Right, because again, women are weak and inferior and feminizing a man must be the ultimate insult! Boy howdy, they showed him!

When I read posts like this, I just shake my head.  As a referee, I can tell you that this kind of thing happens at every level of the game.  Puck hits the goalie, ref thinks the goalie has it, ref blows the whistle, puck goes into the net.  The puck was laying down right next to him out of the refs view.  It wasn't a case of crappy reffing.  It was just bad luck.  Human error is part of the game.  The Wings and every other team has benefitted from this kind of play before.  They have also been stung by it.  It won't be the first time and it won't be the last.
 
There is really no way to fix this issue unless you give the referee x-ray glasses or remove them from the ice entirely and have them sitting in a video booth where they can make every call from there.
 
Now, what every hockey fan should be discussing is the fact that they had 40+ shots on net and couldn't beat Price once.  As a Wings fan, that would terrify me because it shows that while Montreal was outhustled and outplayed, their goalie kept them in it like he has all season.  He is probably going to win the Vezina trophy this season.  For those who think that Tampa Bay was going to be an impossible team to beat, imagine playing Montreal.  That is just as scary.


I 100% agree that it is human error. And I also 100% think the NHL has the power to do something about it.
