This is ALL on Holland. He cannot continue to believe that players should take discounts because "We Are Detroit" or they are local kids. The ONLY players that come here for discounts or re-sign here anymore are players that either have had their longer career's here or players that cannot get signed ny anyone else, plus, for some reason, Holland OVERPAYS his useless vet's and low-balls his top talented RFA's when the market dictates otherwise. Danny D should get and deserves to get paid like comparable RFA defensemen out there PLUS get paid better than players that are WORSE than he is. There is no way Danny D should deservedly get less money than Kindl, Quincey OR Ericsson. Way to treat one of the ONLY players to choose Detroit over everyone else, even if it meant passing up better places to play. Way to show this kid, who is arguably the best defenseman you have on the team (or don't have yet) that you intend to make him feel wanted for life. I don't blame Danny if he just hold's out as long as it takes to get a deal, then split when he is a UFA. Holland continues to prove to everyone that his priorities are out of whack. He needs to give Danny a similar contract to Gardiner and then deal with waiving Q or K if it comes down to re-signing Alfie at an over-inflated contract. Danny D is going to be the leader of the future D-Corps, now is not the time to sour your relationship with him...and I wouldn't doubt that behind closed doors, the relationship is going south...I only wish my buddy still dated his sister maybe I could get some inside thoughts on their opinions of Holland's negotiation tactics now!
