What a joke.

In Topic: Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Samuelsson was easily the worst imo, but last year's signing of Cleary was also pretty bad. He was terrible all season but managed to deliver a heroic post season. It was pretty obvious it wasn't going to last. The Cleary 2.0 signing as someone labelled it is a joke but we all know there is no way he will stay in the lineup.

From what I have seen from Sproul (which is not much) he is far from NHL ready. I would say there is a definite need for a short/intermediate solution.

Even if Holland would have managed to sign a free agent defenseman like Niskanen or Boyle, I'm not entirely convinced he would not have re-signed Quincey.

This is right on.

Ken Holland took a giant dump yesterday, and when everyone rejected what he's done to the Wings... He goes and throws an insane amount of money at the worst player on last year's blue line.

That's right, instead of letting the absolutely worst defenceman on the team go, he gave him a huge raise in hopes that the extra cash would magically make him a better player.

Genius move by KH.

Kindl was the worst defenseman on the team last year.
