Wings Extend Ken Holland And Jim Nill

from John Hahn of DetroitRedWings.com,

The Red Wings announced today that the team has signed executive vice president and general manager Ken Holland, and vice president and assistant general manager Jim Nill to five-year contract extensions.

“Kenny and Jim have been the core of our front office for well over a decade and cornerstone to this franchise’s success,” Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch said. “Marian and I feel strongly that stability is key to success for any organization and having these new agreements in place with these two top-notch NHL executives is important to the Red Wings’ organization and its future. They are committed professionals and outstanding individuals, and we have great respect for their respective talents. We’re pleased they will continue to lead our hockey club for the next five years.”

This is a no-brainer.  I hope the same extensions were offered to Ryan Martin as well.
