Don Maloney? Look at what this guy has done in Phoenix with a fraction of the budget the Wings have.
I wouldn't say he is better than Holland. What he has to do with the budget he has is bring up kids into the lineup and mix them in with veteran plugs instead of quality talent. Course, I really don't know how he would do in the Wings organization. Dave Talon did pretty well going from Chicago to Florida. Chicago was a spend to the cap team and Florida isn't.
Anyway, the point is that Don Maloney doesn't have a proven track record of winning. He isn't a clear cut upgrade over Holland in my mind.
As for this "mess", lets put it in perspective. The Wings are considering being one of the top 16 teams and qualifying for the playoffs as a mess. There are a lot of other teams out there that would love to have the "mess" that we have.
