For all the people just shaking this off, you need to have your heads examined. 2nd rnd draft pick, 32nd overall in 2009. Ken Holland's inability to act let our division rival pick him up for free. We spend a high draft pick, we train a high draft pick, then we lose him for free to a division rival. The Red Wings put the wrong player on waivers and failed to make a trade so they wouldnt have to. Stupid gm.
He managed to find us a RHD we've been looking for since Rafalski retired, he addressed our lack of center depth after buying out Weiss. More importantly he did both without tying us to either player long term so even if they don't work out, it won't be a disaster.
To top if off he and Mr. Ilitch already worked out a pretty awesome new dance routine with our new additions.
