  3. Thanks for your service Kenny, now hit the skids

  4. Waiting for the ignorant negative things people will inevitably say here. The man did great with us overall, and stepped aside when the captain wanted to come back willingly. He’s also drafted well the last few years, and gave the captain a great foundation to build off of.

  5. Makes it seem like hiring Yzerman wasn’t his idea, just put on a brave face for the fans and media if he leaves two weeks after his replacement was hired

  6. Should we boo him like we did Sergi Fedorov

    May 5th will forever be known as Detroit Red Wings Independence Day!

  10. He did great , last few years no so , time for him to move on. No need to bash him for an overall job well done . Now what if he does something great with Edmonton ? Sometimes things get old in one place and doesn’t work anymore, a change of Scenery is good

  24. I was really hoping he was going to stick around and retire with the Wings, but he’s got to do what he’s got to do. It’s a business. Still disappointing.

  25. Reportedly?
    You’re Not Sure?
    Rumor Has it?

  26. I think that’s a great idea. We did have some glory years with him and he deserves respect and credit for those accomplishments. But I do think it’s time to go.

    Reply
  27. I really wish you would have stayed with the Detroit Red Wings organization so that Steve and him could have truly created a great team I don’t think what people understand is how much knowledge and experience were losing with him leaving to Edmonton

    Reply
  28. I would have waited for Seattle. Edmonton is a graveyard for hockey careers.

    Reply
  29. Out with the old, in with the new. Money talks, thanks for your years of service.

  30. I think Ken Holland was over rated. Bryan Murray and Jim Devellano built the team of the 90’s ,and Ken Holland walked into a good team that was already established as a contender

    Reply
  31. He gets to deal with McDavid and Draisatl contract and trying to figure how to get rid of lucic and a sustainable top 4 defense

    Reply
  32. Talks a good game now let’s see what he can do in Edmonton.

    Reply
  33. Makes sense co suffering Stevie Y said he’s bringing pat verbeek aboard with him

    Reply
  34. I thought Seattle was getting a team and he was going there…🤔🤔

    Reply
  35. Thanks for a great career with the Wings!

  37. Sad, but not really a surprise what with Stevie’s return.

    Reply
  38. I would have thought that he could have gotten a better job.

    Reply
  39. I thought he was going to be a vice president? He was awesome for several years but I think it is time he go help somebody else. I do appreciate what he did for us though.

  40. Good, he can go destroy another organization for all I care…

    Reply
  41. Truly the end of an era of this comes to pass.

    Reply
  42. Don’t forget He will have Connor McDavid He’s gonna build around him

    Reply
  43. Anyone REALLY surprised 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Reply
  44. Makes sense, closer to home now

    Reply
