Contracts like this are the reason for the lockout.  Overpaid by 2M.

Can we get a fan letter in to Mr Illitch to voice our displeasure with Holland? I think most people would just be happy with a GM that avoids dead weight players and lets the kids fill spots as they earn it. Im not saying holland should be spending to the cap with the flavor of the month - i just want him to stop pursuing old vets instead of letting the kids play. Why draft them then?

As eager as I am to sign that, it would be ignored.

As long as Ken Holland is the GM, accept mediocrity.  He's trained the fan base for several years to accept "we like our team," "our deadline addition is _______ coming back from injury," and "the price is too high."  The game has passed him by, and he s-*-*-*s away players' careers by not adding necessary pieces (Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg).


The price *may* be high compared to what it used to be....but Jesus.....you can't tell me we can't sacrifice ANYTHING from the farm team to fix obvious deficiencies we've had for some time?


But even then....yeesh....when Ken Holland does do something, does it not seem like a combination of drunken booty call (Quincey, Samuelsson) or flat out stupid (Coliacovo, Gustavsson).


I anxiously await the day we get a quality GM again.  It's amazing what people here stomach when teams like Boston and Chicago have figured it out.


There are teams that have GMs that overreact....Philly, New York.....there are teams who have it figured out......and then there are teams whose GMs simply think showing up and collecting a pay check is enough (KEN F*ING HOLLAND)
