If Holmstrom doesn't realize it's time to retire then he will have the same conversation he had with Maltby years ago and we will hear about him gracefully stepping down.

Agree that he was better at the end of this season, but overall he's been trending down fast over the last few seasons, so it's time to move on. Anyone have the stat for the # of goals he caused to be disallowed due to goalie interference calls for his career? Has to be the NHL all-time leader by a mile.
Yeah I get it we've been over this. I saw a guy who played like he did in 08, you didn't.

I'm not a Franzen fan, as he showed more intensity in his Ram truck commercials than in his play this season and in the PO's. If we sign Parise and then have Franzen as the #2 scoring winger, I don't mind that scenario. But if over the next season or 2 Holland could bring in Parise and another scoring forward for the top 6, combined w/ the kids on the way up in the system, then I'd be fine w/ moving Franzen to bring in help on D or bottom 6 skill/intensity.

I suppose that his perceived laziness and attitude problem could be affecting the team, but if that's the case, then I'm laying some fault w/ the team leaders for allowing that to fester. It would be Franzen's bad for acting like that, but someone in the locker room has to get in his face and straighten him out. I do think there's a leadership problem in the locker room b/c it was stunning for a veteran team to come out so flat in almost every PO game.
We don't know that someone hasn't said something to him. If any team would keep that quiet it's the Wings. You can't make 'em all work hard. I've been around that crap and you just can't will a guy to skate if he doesn't want to. He needs to go, or shape up. Period. I don't even want him on a second line, unless he developes chemistry with two super skilled guys who can work in spite of him.

Some laziness I can deal with. Hull for example, I could deal with that. It was overblown but still, he was a floater a bit but he knew how to be useful, how to contribute. Mule just destroys entire plays not getting open or turning it over. Pav must've become a master at spinning a 180 on the spot.

With the coming retirement of Lids, Homer is as good as gone.

It was reported that Homer was waiting to see what Lids was going to do after this season before he decided. I'm sure that he will follow suit.

End of an era. The old guard is now all gone.

Probably give Nick a few days to a week to bask in the adulation he deserves.


I'll shut this one down and wait for the official announcement.
