#2531562 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by heikks86 on 11 July 2014 - 01:23 PM

I'm surprised no one has voted for that lazy floater Jason Williams. That signing pissed me right off when it happened all those (five) years ago and I remember Holland's quote of "that gives us an extra 20 goals season."


i voted for Williams because of that play he had against the Sharks in the playoff OT game awhile back that lead to the game winning goal. none of the other signings have cause the Wings to lose games like Williams did

#2430055 Brunner Contract Talks

Samuelsson has averaged 50 points a full season since he left Detroit.  If he's healthy there's no reason to think that he wouldn't score 45 or so, and he adds size, something that's sorely lacking on this team.


How much is sitting in the pressbox is completely irrelevant as long as they're ok with the cap, and the lines can be configured however you want.  If they find someone who wants to trade for Samuelsson that he'd waive his NTC to go to, or trade Tootoo, fine.  If not, absolutely waive Eaves.  He's a solid checking line winger who can kill penalties, but he has a history of concussions and his days in Detroit are numbered, especially after they signed Miller to his 3 year extension.  If Helm is healthy and they move someone else, they might choose to dump Emmerton instead.  If Helm is going to be out for awhile and they can't move anyone else, Eaves is first in line.  He's better than Emmerton, but Emmerton can play center and they'll need that if Helm can't go.


Eaves has a history of concussions? He had only one concussion that i remember. He got it when he broke his jaw and then had post concussion syndrome

#2416829 Wings interested in Stalberg and Bickell

Posted by heikks86 on 01 June 2013 - 03:23 PM

Why would Bickell or Stalberg sign with the Wings? Right now they are on the better team that will most likely offer them more money (and likely to take a loyalty discount if they do win the Cup) than the Wings would. We all know how Holland plays the UFA game, anyone who was not on the Wings the day before free agency starts will get a smaller offer from the Wings than any other team. He will look to sign our UFAs first (like Flip and Cleary for some reason) and then go after the bigger fish if he has money left over, but mostly for depth guys (Tootoo, Cola, Sammy, etc). 


The only time he goes all in is with hired guns/rentals like Hossa and Jagr who have names that all hockey fans are aware of. He will not sign 3rd and 4th liners because it seems like our 3rd and 4th lines are set if and when Helm comes back. 


I see Bert and Sammy hopefully saying goodbye to make room for the younger guys and HOPEFULLY Holland fixing what killed us against Chicago, bigger and more experienced defensemen to let some others fix their game in GR and stop turning the puck over, and being beaten one on one while standing still at the blueline, or making blind passes up the boards to no one, or pinching down under the goal line during a line change, etc. 

the Hawks probably cant give him a raise they have 2 million in cap room, With Handzus Stalberg, Emery, and  Rosival all UFA's and Leddy a RFA

Posted by heikks86 on 20 April 2012 - 09:37 PM


You see that as Scotty's players slowly left and Holland's team took over, they got worse and worse. Franzen and Hudler are the biggest frauds EVER. Neither deserve to be here next season...

yeah its not like Hudler has scored the Wings only 2 goals the last two games

#2273976 Brendan Smith sent back to Grand Rapids

Posted by heikks86 on 25 March 2012 - 10:07 PM

There are no roster limits, but this is a pure senority move typical of the Red Wings, so instead of letting Smith it in the press box Holland sent him down to keep him playing although Smith should be playing here above Kindl due to him be far better. In my opinion Jakub Kindl was the worst first round pick by Detroit since Kory Kocur.

Kindl is better than Curtis Bowen, Maxim Kusnetsov, Jesse Wallin and Yan Golubovsky

Patrick Kane?

pretty much one in the same, they will both hit you for their 20 cents

Watching Franzen lose physical battles along the boards to guys like Kane and Keith is pretty frustrating. They're great players, but with his size, he should be tougher to handle. Just looks like jelly out there.

yeah watching Franzen is ridiculous sometimes a 10 year old girl can knock the puck off his stick
