Those skullet tossings really did a number on Ole Chicken Legs Chef.
Is Kenny Holland the new Gillis or something? Whats with this latest rant?
:lol:

It’s funny. It’s like Jake Wise that he constantly brings up. I mentioned Wise on draft day ONCE, that I wish they had picked him. I had liked what I saw of him at the U18 tourney. Obviously it appears Elmer made the correct call on Madden at this point. Funny thing is previous to that Chef had been touting Veleno and Wise as possible lottery picks.

I have no idea what went on with Holland. But there’s a couple of posters who really seem to hate his guts on this board. I’m not saying he’s gods gift but he ain’t the drooling tard that these people make him out to be.

The Holland Wings, the team we currently see in the bowels of the NHL, are putrid beyond belief. Poor Stevie inherited a mess!

Hes getting a fair amount of praise for stabilizing the mess in coilerville. The hiring of a defensive structure focused coach, the lucic flushing, etc.

I'm pretty sure theyre going to wipe the floor with our team in these back to backs (the way weve sucked lately) so unless hes willing to heap praise onto one of his other laughing points in Chia then its safe to say the coil are faring better than our team

It is odd how that team decayed into what you see now. They had a long run of being a top team so werent drafting in the top 10 for like 20 years or something but still...to not hit on any later round picks is probably why hes in edmonton

Holland getting all the glory 27 games into his rookie season with the Coil. Him acquiring McDavid and Draisaitl was nothing short of brilliance.

The Wings have been rebuilding around the same time Benning arrived here. Lidstrom retired in 2012, in 2012 Datsyuk was 34, Zetterberg 32.

So you're a Chiarelli fan then?

Hollands best move had been to settle down the circus and hire the coach. Its been a good start.

No. The Oil won the McDavid lottery moving up 3 spots in the order. Draisaitl, was there before he arrived in Edmonton

Your Great Holland has been rebuilding the last 6 years, the results? Worst in the league now, 8 losses in a row

I didn’t say he was great. I just get a kick of out of a miserable angry mid 50s guy who hates a random GM for no particular reason. Carry on, these drunken ragefests are good humour. :lol:

Pierre LeBrun
Hearing that the Devils have started to listen from teams on Taylor Hall. Doesn't mean they will for sure trade him but given their place in the standings and the magnitude of a potential deal, GM Ray Shero is now in listening mode...

What would they get for Hall? A late 1st and a top prospect. They have to trade him though. He’s 28 and he’s already been dinged up a bit. He will want 10 million + on a seven year deal. Stay the fuck away. Good player but there’s way too many hard miles on that odometer already.
