Afternoon Line

Ken Holland is terrific, wonderful man. Ken is considered the best GM in the game. He certainly has been the most successful since he took over the Wings. Although he downplays his personal success he does attribute his team’s success to passion. He is passionate about hockey and only looks for people who feel the same way. Talking to Ken about the Red Wings it occurred to me that the Red Wings brain trust are totally immersed in the game. They watch hockey all the time. When they aren’t watching it they are talking about it. When they aren’t doing the previous mentioned things they are teaching hockey to minor hockey coaches and players-PASSION.

Ray Shero is a great general manager, and there are very few GMs I would consider taking over him, but Holland is definitely one of them. Can’t argue with his results.

Great article Paul.  Maybe now some of us can trust Tick-Tock and believe what he says.  I, like others, am becoming annoyed by the Modano soap opera.  Due diligence has been done by the Wing braintrust in regards to assessing what Modano brings to the team.  So tust them folks.  They’re the experts.

Great article Paul.

Not sure I’d call anything that little bald knob says or writes “great”... but it’s good for him anyway.  LOL

They watch hockey all the time.

Apparently they’ve worn out last year’s hockey tapes and have dug into the box marked Dallas 1999.

Wow that was the first thing I’ve heard out of Drew Remenda’s mouth that wasn’t total horse dookie.
