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".
Those deals really are awful, but the Wings aren't in a position to be picky about turning down elite talent.
The loss of talent during the past four years has been staggering.
