His time has passed, as his assistants (and perhaps real brain trust) have moved on.
The last solid move he made for this franchise was more than half a decade ago, at least.
Forget "put out to pasture." Holland needs to make like my parents' old cats and "go to live on a farm up North."
to get it wrong. But this pick smells like that...
I'd sign and trade Tatar and move Nyquist as well. Those contracts will be up by the time Detroit has a shot again. I've never understood signing guys like Helm and Abdelkader long term. Both of those guys should be replaced with young cheap players, but for some reason Holland likes to sign mediocre guys to long term contracts. Now there are no roster spots for prospects and no money to sign anyone of significance. We don't even have the room to sign 1-2 year rentals we can move for a pick at the deadline.
