    You want Green back?

    No wonder people want Holland back. The subscribe to the same bad ideas.


    Green isn't going to sign a one-year deal. So, like Brendan Smith, Green should save Holland from that particular failure.

    Green's at the age and point in his career where not many teams are going to offer more than 1 year deal. If that's all he gets, he'll take it.

    I just hope we don't try to entice him back to the team with anything longer than 2 years and even 2 years is pushing it.

    Sign and trade is fine with me. He's not so good anymore that he's gonna make us a significantly better team. He won't hurt the tank, he won't be here long, he doesn't have to block any young d-men if we get rid of the replaceable players like XO. But he's decent enough where a playoff team that wants defensive depth will give us a 3rd or 4th or maybe a low 1st/2nd if he has a good year. I will take that pick.

    Would be okay with green back on a 2 year deal as long as XO, Dekeyser/big E, and Jensen are gone. But even then would good with opening up 3-4 spots for our kids and hopefully dahlin

    I have a real hard time putting confidence in the mental acuity of a guy who can't even complete a full sentence. Look beyond the shallow tweets and listen to Holland's actual replies:

    "...I feel their pain...UH... I've been a Red Wing since 1983... UHMM...lived here since 1994, I respect their passion... UHH... I understand their frustration. I understand their disappointment... UHH... I understand that(?) why they would have those feelings, and I guess it's up to me and my people to prove that... UMM... the plan that we've got is a good plan, it's a good plan for them."

    It's like he has brain damage. Too much steak and red wine clogging up blood flow to his head, I don't know. He clearly can't recognize the reason for the criticism fans and observers have had. Wouldn't it make sense to acknowledge the complaints and explain management's thought process a little more?

    Here's another gem:

    "Ken Holland says there will be a minimum of two, maybe 4-5 young players on the roster next year who didn’t start on it this past season."

    So Bertuzzi and Rasmussen. Wow. The only way we see 4-5 young players is because of injuries which would only be temporary fill-ins. A few things he said like this today I believe are straight up white lies. We'll see on July 1 if he sticks to his word.

    And why the **** is Cleary sitting in on the draft?

    Pretty much everything important came in out on that presser.

    Also Holland actions from last 3 years has proven, that he was already going towards a rebuild. Now he said the same. Hasn't traded assets since 2015 deadline.

    Lots of players on 1-2 year deals, Kenny is gonna trade most of them and open spots for new core in next 12-18 months. I could think he extends also Green and will sell him 1-2 seasons later. If we draft a guy like Boquist, he is still 1-2 years away from NHL, that would match for the timeline.

    Liked also hear that he is gonna sign some new people on the front office. And that they are pushing harder for player development. I really wonder was Jiri Ficher the right guy for earlier player development, because nobody did really develop under him.

    Why wouldn't your co-director of player development be at the draft.

    Enjoy yelling at the clouds.:ha:

    Haha, you must have missed last years PS presser. The 1st and most central concept was PLAYOFFS! They didn't have a penny of space to trade in 2016 so that point is moot.

    I'm waiting for a video of the full conference. The idiotic tweets, then interpreted by the media, is really not helping me understand what the "plan" is. One quote says they aren't looking to bring in any mid-tier veterans, another says they would but only short-term. It's somewhat confusing as a consumer (fan).

    If Holland is to be believed:

    Ras-Larkin-Mantha
    Bertuzzi-Z-Nyquist
    AA-Nielsen-Abdelkader
    Helm-Glendening-Svech
    Frk, Witkowski

    DeKeyser-Daley
    Ericsson-Green
    Kronwall-Hronek/Hicketts
    Jensen

    Howard
    Hutton/Other UFA

    I think Green re-signs a 2 year deal. We can move him at the deadline in 19 or 20. If not then both Hicketts and Hronek make the team instead of one.

    Also wouldn't surprise me to see Nyqusit and/or Glendening traded this summer. Doesn't sound like Kronwall is retiring and I don't think anyone wants Abdelkader/Helm/Nielsen/Ericsson or their contracts. Maybe Helm or Ericsson gain some value near the deadline.

    well he did also say "between the age of 19 and 22" in that so Bertuzzi wouldn't count

    You seem to want him to talk in absolutes, which would be incredibly stupid by him to do.

    It's not white lies. It's pretty expected that Rasmussen and Svech make the roster from day 1. Big probablity that at least 1 of Hicketts/Cholowski/Hronek make it. Depending on who get in the draft, that could be another contender for a roster spot. He might be talking about Bertuzzi too which would make 5 kids all together. But who the hell knows how it will play out in 5 months time? Maybe some of those kids look like garbage in preseason?
