Does Ken Holland Have Interest In The Edmonton Oilers?

04/19/2019 at 12:16pm EDT

from Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal,

The far more interesting question this decision now presents is: Will Ken Holland stay in Detroit? Or is there a new challenge out there for a man who had probably been the best NHL General Manager of the past two decades?

For the time being, at least, Detroit will position this as Holland as staying on as Sr. Vice-President. Holland and Yzerman are very good friends. There is no way that Holland would just bring in Yzerman and then walk away, cold-turkey, and steal his friend’s thunder. Not gonna happen.

But I am made to believe that the Edmonton Oilers have indeed spoken to Holland about potential opportunities here. No that could mean a number of things, of which I suspect the General Manager’s job is probably the one that interests Holland the least. And that’s why I have never thought that Holland was a realistic top candidate to become the Oilers G.M., before or now.
