#2318101 Six teams on Nash's trade "list", none Canadian

Posted by Dabura on 11 July 2012 - 08:36 AM

Thanks, that what I thought.

Wonder if Kenny's looked into Lucic. He's not officially on the block, but, like Ryan, his name has popped up now and then and here and there over the last couple of years.

#2315218 Holland comments on Suter & Parise going to Wild

Posted by Dabura on 04 July 2012 - 07:58 PM

How do you know he didn't pursue other options before trade deadline or even before that? Remember, Holland didn't have a lot of cap room (or trade bait) to appeal a good trade.


Isn't that the idea, though? That he could've/should've anticipated the situation?

I'm not bagging on him, but...I don't see the issue with asking what's up with us being in this D hole. I think he's great at his job. Hell, he's amazing, straight up. So what gives?

What gives is, I think, he slipped up a bit.

2002 was kind of a special situation, don't you think?

We kicked the tires. I like our team. Our power play is our enforcer.


#2314750 Ryan Suter agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

Holland is very good at making adjustments, but at times feels like he's too conservative, trying to milk yet another year out of the puck-possession skilled Wings. When Schneider leaves, he gets a very similar d-man in Rafalski and keeps things going.

The Wings team have been like a very fast sportscar that is getting up in years and Holland has been trying to make little tweaks and patches to keep it running another year. The problem is that it's just not faster than other cars anymore and it just dropped the transmission this offseason.

Holland has shown himself as a great GM when it comes to adjustments, but maybe not a great rebuilder.


I think that's about right.

Like I said a couple hours ago, this position he's in right now is, I think, sort of his "sweet spot." There's a bit of a crisis now, and in some ways it doesn't look too good for the Wings this season. It's spots like this where he pulls a rabbit or two from his hat and people go, "Wow, I had all but written off the Wings. That Ken Holland, he's a crafty one."

Some good news would be nice right about now. I need to be a happy drunk this evening.
