#2602705 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 April 2015 - 12:15 PM


Holland is a great GM overall.  The team has done a tremendous job in developing players without having any early draft picks and he has an impressive track record.
 
When it comes to free agent signings though Holland has made several uncharacteristically bad deals over the last few seasons.  And has looked desperate in his attempts to bolster the blueline in Lidstrom's absence, which was also uncharacteristic of him.  
 
I think my biggest worry with Holland is that the handful of bad deals he's made are indicating a trend rather than exceptions. 


 
In addition, there are some deals he hasn't made which could have positively or negatively impacted the team.  We really can't say in hindsight if it was a good deal or not.
 
I remember when Weiss was signed.  Everyone was all over this signing as a great one.  This was an upgrade over Flip.  Now, he isn't viewed as an upgrade anymore.

There were more than a few people who were either neutral or didn't like the signing at all. Just do a quick search


#2602599 Kronwall suspended one game

Pasha - concussion no suspension not even a freaking hearing

Baseball swing - no suspension not even a fine

Smashing Z's head against the glass - 3.000 $ fine

 

Finally seeing the Niklas Kronwall I've loved to watch -  hearing.

 

If they suspend him this leagues' front office is obviously more f***ed up then I've thought they would be. This is hockey for crying out loud it's violent, physical and fast that's why it's the best sport in the world don't turn it into sissies on ice if I wanted to watch that, I'd have tons of other "sports" to watch. They better fine him - if needed ... - the max amount of what $ 5.000 ?

#2601301 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Divers, embellished, arrogant brats advance thanks to a bad call what a downer Thisf****** league owes the sens an apology. Disappointed that the Sens didn't return the favor after the game ended. Senator fans should be really proud of this team, lowest payroll and yet they would have stormed back if it weren't for Chris Lee God damnit


#2601265 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 April 2015 - 05:25 PM

I want to pipe in and say that I think it's sad when people chant the negative stuff. I wouldn't even chant "Tampa Bay sucks!" I don't think they suck. I don't think any team or player in the NHL sucks. They are all competitors in a difficult league. I saw a post here that said "somebody should injure Tyler Johnson". I mean, really? When he scored the two goals and carried his team, I felt happy for him. Of course if the Wings lose, it would be major heart-ache, but that's not going to make me "hate" other players or teams. I just cheer, cheer, cheer for the Wings, and try to feel good for other teams and players when they have success. I would like to see Joe Louis Arena focus on positively impacting their team and let go of the silly "Bulls***", etc. chants. It's not going to happen, though, "the mass" just doesn't operate that way.

 

This is hockey not holiday on ice. I'm also happy for some players from other teams but if one attends a game and is into the crowd-stuff I for sure expect negative chants towards the opponent. The job of a crowd is to make cheer for the home-team and make it unpleasant for the opponent to play in a building. That  Kate Perry sign from a Jets fan was just pure gold




#2601260 WCQF : (6) Minnesota Wild vs. (2) St. Louis Blues

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 April 2015 - 05:18 PM

Minny is a difficult out, no other way to slice it. I wouldn't be surprised if they beat Chicago, but I wouldn't say they are favored.

 

Let's hope they do so.
