Done a super job(with some great help). However, no one is perfect:
1) Hate losing guys on waivers for nothing-to this day I still find it HARD to believe that Holland could not have dealt Ozzie for a least a couple of mid round picks. If I recall correctly, there were at least 5 00/01 non playoff teams that had a GAA of over three. Surely one of them could have used a Cup winning tender. If Holland (and Babcock) hadn't insisted on carrying an 8th dman(Chelios), Quincey would still be on the team.
2) Not a great fan of trade deadline deals either-see the four deals in '99. Lang did squat for the Wings and he cost us a first rounder(which could have been Green). Since I wanted the Wings to sign Stuart as a free agent, had no problem with that move and loved him staying with the team.
