Holland has never truly admitted that a trade has to happen. He's been saying the same "Y'know, we'd like to make a trade, BUT..." crap since Rafalski retired.

 

The problem is not that trading is hard. The problem is, in a word, Holland. He doesn't do impact trades. He doesn't have any real interest in shaking things up.

 

Again I say:

  • The Wings have made less than 25 trades since 2005.
  • That's far and away the fewest of any team.
  • The Devils are second from the bottom with 50 trades.

Ken Holland does not care about solving real problems and making meaningful changes and meaningful improvements and icing a truly solid team. Ken Holland cares about maintaining the status quo.


 

AA and Mantha could be fourth-liners. We could roll four scoring lines.

 

But, instead, our fourth line is going to be Miller-Glendening-Ott.

 

Because the Wings are run by assholes.

 

Completely agree.  AA and Mantha should be no brainers this year...any time spent in the minors shows we have a GM that can't manage or discern talent. Having a glut of forwards to the point talent is being stifled is getting ridiculous. Package 2-3 guys you know are going to be trapped in the minors and trade for a defenseman that can make a difference. Same damn problem every year...a signing of guys who don't matter, talent being forced to lower levels and a defense that is pathetic. Don't care if its overpayment we need a defenseman worth a damn to pair with DeKeyser. How can the guys in charge not see this...its like groundhog day every damn year with this GM.

Howard is making what $5Mill as the "back-up" at this point? St James wrote a fluff piece telling us it might be money well spent...that doesn't bode well to what a judge might find as a price point for Mrazek.

Holland can't seem to find a defenseman worth a damn, better overpay and be happy I guess.

Holland will be unable to move Howard and will likely soon start negotiations for an extension...

How long does the team remain irrelevant before Holland is moved. I realize compared to most Detroit teams the Wings are a special but the goodwill most of you extend to him is ridiculous.

The franchise has been in the same position for years...a glut of low to mid range forwards, young hyped defenseman that never seem to break the lineup and a defense that is never fixed.

Holland focuses on the Miller, Helms and Cleary's of the world and promises the trade that never comes. St. James or whatever her name is will parrot Holland's position all off season but in the end

all trade partners will just be asking too much...wait another year...youth....it won't change until he's replaced.
