The Wings' offer to Suter didn't matter, because they didn't make a competitive offer to Parise and Suter wasn't going anywhere without him. Those deals are both horrible, by the way.
None of those things are Ken Holland's fault.
Extending Bert with a no-trade, that's Ken Holland's fault.
Drafting one NHL forward (Franzen) with size and any kind of skill in the 15 years he's been GM, that's at least partially Ken Holland's fault.
This left the team in a position where it would feel pressure to extend Bert and sign Samuelsson, because they can't have a top 9 that's all under 5'10".
So the fact that Suter isn't on this team is not Ken Holland's fault, but the fact that Tatar and Nyquist aren't on this team IS his fault.
