Topics I've Started

Holland (selfishly) declined promotion

25 April 2016 - 10:03 PM

I didn't see anyone mentioning this bombshell.


Dear ol' Kenny was asked to take a different job so as to keep The Captain with the team as GM. He declined. 





When Steve Yzerman left the front office to manage the Lightning, Mike Ilitch said he had approached Holland about moving up in the front office to make room for Yzerman as general manager.


Ilitch said Holland declined.


Now, Holland’s tasks are formidable and mounting, and his joke several seasons ago that Lidstrom’s retirement might hasten his own is less humorous.


He faces fierce urgency in a hot kitchen, likely to get only hotter.

BREAKING: The ‪#‎Senators‬ have acquired Dion Phaneuf from the‪#‎MapleLeafs‬ in a 9-Player Trade. Stay Tuned!



Those that were thinking about him.. this probably takes him off the available list.

Howard injury update

09 November 2015 - 10:06 AM

I cannot seem to find anything about Howard's condition after the knee to the head other than HSJ's and Khan's tweets.

Both report that he was ok and wanted to come back in. 






Seems like just got knocked a little loopy, but is that the real story?
