Where's the loyalty, Kenny?


#2532171 Red Wings & the Media

I think it's ironic that he criticizes how the Wings treat bloggers differently yet in this very piece he shows why they should be.
 
It's full out slander on John Hahn with absolutely zero actual evidence but "anonymous" quotes backing his own opinion of him.
 
A lot of this piece just rubs me the wrong way....


They're anonymous because many currently work within the Wings org and obviously don't want to jeopardize their jobs.

So it's true. He listens to the expert opinions of the staff he pays for this sort of thing. What an idiot.

 

I bet those same experts told him to resign Samuelsson, Williams, Bertuzzi and Quincey.

 

Seems to me like he needs to find new experts. 


I was just going to post that. What exactly does he expect his fellow teammates to say about him? Of course they are gonna say they enjoy having him around. Of course they are going to say they 'want' him back because if he does end up back in the locker room it would create unneeded friction.

 

It's up to Holland to read between the lines here and make the best decision for the team.

Exactly. The GM is supposed to be the freaking voice of reason for god's sakes, that's why he's the GM. Not just leave all decisions up to the players.

Speaking of not valuing fans.....

 

This from Art Regner's latest article:

 

 en the Detroit Red Wings signed Daniel Cleary last season, I told Detroit general manager Ken Holland that it was going to be an unpopular move with the fans. Holland looked at me and said, "Who do I listen to on Cleary, the fans or the guys in the room, my players and my coach? "Everybody wanted me to bring Cleary back."

The guy could just give two s***s about the fanbase.

I can't believe theyf****** told you that. WTF is wrong with them?

 

Too much kool-aid.

So Dallas or Tampa? Kings are my video game team when someone already picked the Wings, but I'd feel/labeled as a band-wagoner.

 

Meh. Would prefer a team on the east or at least central so I can watch the games. 

 

Being in Boston, might start following the Bruins closer. Though I hate a ton of players on the team, I think Chiarell is the best GM in the NHL.

Wow. Seriously?

I can't believe the Red Wings ticket office thinks Billy Beane is the team's GM.

(But seriously that's totally absurd if true.)

 

Yep, and I'm apparently one of very few people who's had any complaints. 

 

If true, for god's sakes people, CALL AND MAKE YOUR OPINIONS HEARD OR THINGS WILL NOT CHANGE.

I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.

 

I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team". 

 

I can see they really value the fans.

according to his agent, he wanted a one year deal at 3 mill... the blues offered him two years at that or one year at 2.7 mill.

 

sounds pretty selfish to me

I read the first part and thought you were talking about Cleary and almost spit my coffee out.

Just throwing it out there, I find it pretty hilarious that we seem to be the only team where none of our free agents have generated even the slightest bit of interest from other teams. Shows how desirable our players are. 

 

Cleary

Bertuzzi

Tootoo

Samuelsson

Quincey

 

Not the subject of any buzz whatsoever, outside resigning in Detroit. 




#2530760 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 July 2014 - 10:16 AM

@ArthurJRegner said #RedWings would like to move players like Landon Ferraro to #Capitals for Mike Green.

 

Annnnd, there goes that.
