If missing the playoffs serves some greater good then that's fine by me. Last year I was prepared for the streak to end and I relished the idea of an organizational re-think and a high pick. This year I feel the same way.
BUT you damn well know that Holland will blame injuries. Our big summer UFA signings will be a healthy Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Weiss, Helm, etc.
Guess what I know it and it's pissing me off. Nothing against Holland but at some point he has to see the obvious, there needs to be a clear direction and a change of style. This team is Geffen runover on a nightly basis. Rookies are expected to carry the load game in game out that's too much pressure.
I think Stevie would be the right guy for the job. Also the draft philosophy has to change no more smallish soft players defender under 190 lbs nope, forwards nor bulked up nope...i really can't wait for McKee. Things need to change quickly.
I would love us picking that Dreiseitl guy
