And look who got an assist on the series winning double OT playoff goal, none other than Alan Quine. 

Hes got no future in this league.

Im done beating this dead horse, but Holland just keeps wracking up the missteps.

i’m no holland apologist, but one assist in one playoff game for a guy with one goal in two career NHL games doesn’t really prove much of anything, does it? he’s on pace to score 41 every season?

Oh, did you miss his game winning OT playoff goal last game?  Or the fact that he’s playing on the Isles top line in double OT of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and having success?

Well While I don’t believe Holland necessarily dropped the ball on this guy, I see Hootinani’s point, KH needs to GTFO. I’m done with him and so are all the fans. We need someone reliable and smart, a quick thinker, a proactive mind with dreams. KHs dream is golfing… Not the cup.

And you guys have to stop posting the same crap on every post that doesn’t even relate to the Wings.  Here I was looking forward to discussing NY’s next matchup just to find the previous comments are all about the Wings. 

Speaking of the NYI and their next matchup though, I think they’ll match up well against Tampa.  Tampa is quick, NYI plays a more blue collar style.  Should be interesting to see the two go back and forth.
