Some Ken Holland And Mike Babcock Talk

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News, These are interesting times for the Detroit Red Wings. They’re coming off a season in which they just made the playoffs after moving to the far inferior Eastern Conference, went 0-for-everyone in free agency and have a mix of wobbly veterans and kids that could well see their run of 23 straight seasons in the playoffs come to an end. ...

An open letter to Ken Holland re: re-signing Kyle Quincey and Daniel Cleary

Dear Ken Holland, On behalf of my fellow Wings fans, we've had it. We are fed up, we are fed up with you, and we are angry. Why?

Ken Holland’s Wikipedia Page Altered by a Disgruntled Red Wings Fan

Ken Holland’s popularity may be at an all-time low in Hockeytown after he stumbled his way into re-signing Kyle Quincey on Tuesday. To wit: Holland’s Wikipedia page was hit by what we can only assume is an unhappy Detroit Red Wings fan. Surely, the page will be changed back to its usual form at some point, but the altered intro paragraph lingered for awhile on Wednesday afternoon...

Holland after tough day: 'We'll keep kicking tires'

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland had a bad day Tuesday, when he was snubbed by the unrestricted free agents he coveted most -- among others, Matt Niskanen (who landed in Washington) and Dan Boyle (who signed with the New York Rangers).
