Has Holland conceded that the run is over?
1. He was being interviewed by Pat Caputo. Pat's questions last night were awful. Ken Kal saved Pat, multiple times, when Holland was searching for answers to Pats awful questions.

Example- talking about Suter/Parise being Minnie guys and not wanting to come Detroit, bc they werent from here, and or Windsor..LOL pat

2. Holland was obviously doing something, other than giving his full 100% attention to the interview. It was obvious, he was either driving, and or, on a plane. He was fiddling around, which could easily be heard in his voice.

3. His comment about parity, was 100% truth. Its a different NHL. 30 teams have a chance (meh, sorry CBJ), and gone are the days, where he can pick up any player. Lets not forget here, an 8 seed won the cup last year, so yeah, his comment about parity is on par.

he is rebuilding a very very good core. it will take time. he knows this. the wings are in a very good position given their depth, and cap room.

holland last night, was not focused on a terrible 97.1 interview. he has 3 days from the time of the interview, to get the team ready to go for a very very short season, with a lot on the line..

Carolina even got him for 1 year!

I mean.... how much better would this look than the current top 6?

Filppula-Datsyuk-Semin
Franzen-Zetterberg-Brunner


Hmm?? can think of some reasons

1. lazy
2. not worth the money
3. history of being lazy

have fun in carolina
