More of the same until Holland is gone. We've needed a trade to beef up the defense and pair down the glutton of similar type unproductive forwards for some time. Holland has hid behind the youth movement for some time now.

He is incapable of making the decisions needed to move this team forward and seems obsessed with spending time signing Cleary types while the real trade needed never happens. I'm done with this until he is replaced. The big decision

this last fall was does Larkin deserve a spot on the roster?? Really?? If that decision, which was glaringly obvious, is that difficult I have zero faith in other decisions requiring real analysis.

The season is over...hope Kenny starts working on Cleary's contract early this year...the suspense killed me last year.

Speaking of cleaning up this mess...When does the mess that is Franzen officially end. Seems like years have gone by with his salary on the books and zero production.

Looking at age and production no I probably would not trade straight up for any on those options. Benn is a special talent but again he's what 26? My point is look at who you are talking about the very best the league has

to offer and guys you would most likely consider elite. Why is it such a stretch to call him out as a special talent and something in an upper category of the league? I personally wouldn't trade him for those folks but if you would I understand

but again I'd put the people you are talking about in that special category as elite. He's in that conversation and rightly so. Glad we didn't have to suffer him in the minors for a few years to grow him and keep in mind even our supposed

hockey brains of the Wings operations really debated on whether he deserved to be in the NHL yet...what a joke.
