Have to eat at least partial crow here and thank Kenny. As hard as I've bagged on him lately this was a solid move. If he somehow gets a solid defenseman before the Trade Deadline I'll have to shut-up about him for a few years I guess.

As obviously bad as the Cleary call was this year it was worse last year when Tatar and Nyquist were left out of the line up to accommodate Samuelsson, Cleary, Totoo, Bertuzzi etc..the beginning of the season. Some actually defended Holland saying both kids needed time to grow. I have zero faith in Holland and his ability to make the correct decision. I'd love to see a trade to solidify the blue line but judging on past choices we are probably better off without him making a move.

Love the kids and this team but we aren't beating Tampa, Montreal or Anaheim with the current defense. We have tons of talent in the minors, a few who might never be realized potential or make it up to the NHL. If we are serious about being cup contenders at some point choose who won't make it in the system and trade away a draft pick or some prospects for a talented piece or two that can change your team and provide leadership down the stretch or over the next few years. I understand you can't do this every year but its been 7 years since the Stuart acquisition, Zetterberg and Datsyuk aint getting any younger and this team has been in need of a top 4 defenseman for quite a few years now.

I think Stuart would be my threshold as well. So its been what 7-8 years since a trade deadline mattered? Kenny is setting himself up for another we like our team

moment. Sometimes that's good I guess but most of his moves are insignificant and I have zero faith he'll pull the trigger on an upgrade to help this team this year either.

Always spun up for a nice addition to push us into serious contention and every year its ground hog day. Seriously what was the last serious move Holland made to make this team better.

DD was probably it and he was a Michigan gift to the Wings.
