Good, need to even out the ridiculousness that is uneven divisions.  Would rather seem them contract but we all know that will never happen.


In Topic: Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Wings fans are over-passionate and unrealistic so not surprised to see the negative reaction here.  There are 30 teams all vying for the same goal and yet if the Wings don't win a cup every 3 or 4 years then the GM is a failure?  The large majority of the teams in this league would give their left nut to have Holland at the helm.  

 

Good signing, I don't agree with everything he's done, especially in recent years...but this team is positioned with a strong farm and should have a bright future.

More likely that are the number 10 seed.

 

How do you figure?  You'd have to assume the young players get worse, AHL callups don't contribute, and we somehow have even more injuries than we did last year.  None of which are likely to happen.


In Topic: Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Worst place to be in hockey. The Wings are turning into the Calgary Flames. Lingering in mediocrity and Holland is content to just keep the playoff streak alive. Honestly, it will never happen, but shouldn't the Wings consider moving Z and/or Pavel? They aren't true contenders and aren't bad enough to get high draft picks to make an immediate impact (or they rot in Grand Rapids for four years anyways). I don't know, after today, I'm just at a loss. Feel like it might be time to just tear it down entirely and rebuild.

 

I'm not quite as freaked out as most on this forum.  Quincey is an overpay, we don't have much else to do with the money so it won't really matter.

 

That said, I could definitely get on board with blowing the team up.  Trading Z and Pavel would net us some very nice picks/prospects....combine those with our current crop of young players and Detroit becomes a very dangerous team in 3 to 4 years.  My biggest fear is that we continue this "rebuild on the fly" (which to date I've generally been supportive of as I assumed FA's still wanted to sign here) and end up as a mediocre team for the next decade.

Very nice looking jerseys.
