Ken Holland said : “As I look at the 19-20 team, part of them (the defensive group) have to be young. Part of them have to be young so that one day they’re old.

It’s not fair to them, it’s not fair to the fans, it’s not fair to the organization, it’s not fair to the team because that’s a tough position on defence. When you make a mistake it usually leads to a scoring chance and if you give up enough scoring chances against good players you fish the puck out of your net.

We’ve got to do it right in terms of developing the players, in terms of getting additional picks. It’s not an exact science. You’re going to be wrong sometimes. You’re going to be right sometime.

Ken Holland said : “I want this team to win another Stanley Cup. I want to the Red Wings to contend for another Stanley Cup, to be a Cup contender. I know how hard it is to win a Cup. We won four Cups. We probably were a contender from … 1993 legitimately to probably ’08, 09, 010, 11. We were a cup contender from 1993 to 2011. Probably 18 years you could say we were a legitimate Cup contender. We won four. We didn’t win 12. We won four. They’re hard to win. Everything has got to fall right. First order of business is you got to build a team that is good enough to win it. Then the experience, the luck with injuries, the wrong people, the match ups, all those things. So I’m overseeing, as the general manager, whether I’m here a long, long time, or a short period of time, I’m doing what I believe is in the best interests of this franchise, of this fan base, of all those players, to try to build this team into a Cup contender. That’s what I get up every day. That’s my challenge. That’s my goal. Because I love being a Red Wing. I love being a Red Wing” External link

Probably 18 years you could say we were a legitimate Cup contender. We won four. We didn’t win 12. We won four. They’re hard to win. Everything has got to fall right. First order of business is you got to build a team that is good enough to win it. Then the experience, the luck with injuries, the wrong people, the match ups, all those things. So I’m overseeing, as the general manager, whether I’m here a long, long time, or a short period of time, I’m doing what I believe is in the best interests of this franchise, of this fan base, of all those players, to try to build this team into a Cup contender.
