My thoughts are if teams are avoiding him, then there must be some issues with him. If it is character issue, then maybe Holland made the right decision by not bringing him to the organization where we have some kids coming up soon.
I agree. I think the Wings tend to acquire certain personality types regardless of talent. Character can trump talent in some cases. I also think if the kids could earn a roster spot they would get one. Holland and Babs aren't stupid. I think Gus and Tatar will likely put on some muscle and get used to the grind of a long season while in the AHL. They will both get call ups this year and if they perform they will stay. Nothing wrong with earning a spot.
