Sure, Holland has massacred this team, but it's not really a product of this offseason. He did about as well as he could've in that he stuck to short term deals.

Probably can't pick out a franchise in worse shape than Detroit right now. They are honestly probably best served dealing Tatar to a contender for a first since they're not going to compete for 5 or so years. He's a really good player and has been underpaid since he got into the league - would like to see him sign a one year bridge deal, bring back a nice haul to Detroit, and get paid somewhere as a UFA.


I remember when, once upon a time, he was considered one of, if not the best GM in the league and would shape Detroit to be a powerhouse for many years to come. Now they're broken beyond repair after handing out all these ridiculous contracts.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Laughing

Yeah, Holland and Detroit have really fallen out of favour. I figure he steps down as GM within the next year and the team can begin rebuilding.

European scouting league wide caught up to Holland and he is loyal to a fault to homegrown players which has led to many awful contracts. He's only won one Cup with a Salary Cap and he still had Lidstrom and a young Datsyuk and Zetterberg. His legacy is a confusing one because he obviously did a tremendous amount of winning, maintained a crazy playoff streak, but I am not convinced he would've been hugely successfully if he began in today's league (although with his original staff, it's pretty likely).

Yeah it is, him, Pietrangelo and Tarasenko are quite a trio for the blues. Going to be interesting to see what schenn does there as well.
