To date, I consider that Ken Holland's biggest mistake.
Source? Fedorov still maintains a home in the Detroit area and the only things I've ever read regarding him commenting on Detroit are positive.
There was a thread around here talking about it not that long ago.
If you follow the story, it even garners a response from Bowman himself about it all.
