I saw the two signings and saw Holand's comments about planning on getting them into a handful of games down the stretch and then sending them to Grand Rapids for the playoffs. Fantastic, I admit I know nothing about them other than they were considered two of the top, if not the two top outright FA's available so good on the Wings. Like you my first thought was Dekeyser who really has been solid this year and has had only one what can be considered bad year. give Holland
Agreed about Frk, like Pulkinnen before him he has a great big windup which is fantastic in the AHL where play is a bit slower but it does not translate to the NHL. We had to draft Frk when he fell to us in the second round he put up nasty numbers playing the off wing with Drouin and MacKinnon in juniors proving the scoring was there but sometimes the smart money passes for a reason. Holland has really whiffed a lot lately, Frk, Pulkinnen, taking Svechnikov instead of Boes
PULKINNEN! Could not remember that name! Thanks. It was killing me!
We are seeing totally eye to eye on KH. Since the dumping of Datsyuk's contract, KH has made an argument to be kept, actually. For a LONG time there, he was riding on his laurels while swinging and missing repeatedly. I STILL think he hasn't learned his lesson when he re-signs current players. I think he overvalues them. I suppose that when he was trying so hard to avoid the word "rebuild" it may have made more sense
