Okay I'll try to explain this as easy as possible :
Cheap fourth liners which are paid near league minimum AND entertain the fans = more money for the top lines , pairings and in the owners pocket.
Matt Martin would be a dream come true but he is too young, big and tough enough for the front office.
Need money for the top lines? Trade Someone away
Entertain the fans? I don't care how many times a team fights when they're losing all their games. Hockey first, then fighting
I would love those players on the Wings, but I have no faith that Holland would ever sign any such player. His track record shows he doesn't like it. He's never actively pursued these types of players before. Yeah, he signed Tootoo, but then Tootoo couldn't ever get on the ice. You can blame that on Babcock, but the pro Babcock crowd blamed Holland. I guess we'll find out whose fault it was in the future.
So what this is an anti-holland thread now?
You know who he definitely won't sign? An insignificant scrub like Anthony Peluso
