I don't blame him either. The team is being dismantled by neglect, and when Pavel leaves, Zetterberg won't be far behind. Can't wait to hear what a genius Holland is then.

You remind me of LWS- it's like you're rooting against the Wings so you'll look smart
No, I root for the Wings. I just don't parrot the Holland is a great GM B.S. A simple question. Have the Wings gotten better or progressively worse since the last cup?
The wings have played like shit in front of both goalies. You're gonna hang a shutout on a goalie? And yes, if you look at Cbus last ten games they are rolling.
I'll half agree with you, Holland and the brain trust have been so good we havent had a top ten draft pick in 20 years (think about that). On the flip side, he has done NOTHING to improve this team in the last 3 years.
I disagree I think they are playing a more defensive game especially w/ Jimmy in goal. Shutout question: I said before they have swagger w/ Jimmy.
If you don't have a top 20 pick why can't he trade up like other teams? Philly moved Carter to Columbus and got a high 1st rounder. They moved Richards to get younger. Wings can't do that because they don't have the youth teams covet. Of course teams would be interested in Zetterberg or Datsyuk but those moves will never happen.
To your first point, that's a problem for any top team, that a good GM has to work around. Compare it to MD having to fight recruit's perception that MSU football has never done anything and the program "isn't a winner". He and the staff go out and find guys nobody else wants like Le'Veon Bell or Dennard and then puts them in the NFL.
thoughts on this supposed 7 year deal for howard coming down the pipe?
Too long and too high of a cap hit (rumored 5 mil).
However, in 7 years, Mrazek will probably be "over-ripe" and ready to go. (Not that I think Mrazek is the absolute future goalie).
I hate to say it but some of the issues might be the fact that players around the league do not like Babcock and some players do not want to come here because of it. It isnt too big of a secret that Shanahan left because of Babs.
Which doesn't give Holland an out.
It does in a way. He offered Suter and Parise, they declined because they wanted to play in MN. Nothing he can do there. He also has gone after other players who were asking for way to much money or he had to give up too much.
So are these rumors of Datsyuk leaving after this year to go to Russia true? Seen it in a few places and suggestions that Wings should trade him.
Vancouver will be wearing throwbacks tonight against the Wings.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
Nothing new to report is probably the best way to explain it. I don't see trading him as a smart or viable option until late next year, if he's planning on heading to Russia. Then again, a blockbuster is always possible.
Don't do it Kenny!

The fuck was Lashoff doing?
Some say I sleep inside out, and that I once had sex with Russell Brand's answering machine...
Nice way to rebound. Pav being Pav and getting a friendly bounce.
Pav's is just an amazing hockey player....great hockey sense and feel for the game....not sure where the Wings would be without him....we have been blessed over the last 20 years with some of the talent we have had on the Wings.
Hank scores. 3-1 Wings.
Cleary scores. 4-1
What a shot by Cleary. Detroit owns Luongo.
Abdelkader now has 3 goals this year: empty netter, off his skate, off his chest.
