from NHL.com,

Holland's gratitude for those who helped him on his journey to induction into the Hall of Fame in the Builders category was the focus of his speech, from start to finish.

He began by thanking the man who succeeded him as Detroit Red Wings general manager, Steve Yzerman.

"What an honor for me to have Steve present me with the plaque," Holland said. "We were together for 26 years with the Detroit Red Wings. He's a good friend and he's had a huge impact on my career."

Holland was emotional about the life lessons from his parents, Rienie and Adeline.

"Our parents taught us the importance of work ethic, sacrifice, treating people with respect," he said. "That's how they lived their lives."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
