Found January 20, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
PLAYERS: Ken Holland
TEAMS: Detroit Red Wings

But considering that all of the Wings' concerns this season revealed themselves within the first two periods of the first game suggests that general manager Ken Holland perhaps can't afford to be as patient as he initially thought.

Question of the Week: If Red Wings Struggle, Should Ken Holland’s Job be on the Line?
