KEN HOLLAND RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ken Holland on Mike Babcock: “We want to kick his ass.”

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland didn’t mince words when discussing former head coach Mike Babcock, telling the Toronto Sun’s Mike Zeisberger he “wants to kick his ass!” The words may seem harsh, but it’s not surprising Holland wants to take down Babcock, who coached the Red Wings for over a decade.

Detroit Red Wings: Blashill to take over as head coach?

Last week, former Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock signed an eight year deal worth a reported $50 million.  After 10 years as head coach in Detroit, Babcock left Hockeytown with a .649 points percentage, and a Stanley Cup Championship in 2008.  It’s the end of an era in Detroit, and while many wonder who the next head coach in Detroit will be, you may be surprised to find...

Detroit Red Wings trade deadline: Who could get traded?

The NHL trade deadline on March 2 has a lot to live up to after what happened Thursday in the NBA. For Detroit’s sake, I hope Stan Van Gundy has given the city what they wanted and filled their trade desires because I think the Red Wings are better off not making a trade at the deadline.

Ken Holland’s Wikipedia Page Altered by a Disgruntled Red Wings Fan

Ken Holland’s popularity may be at an all-time low in Hockeytown after he stumbled his way into re-signing Kyle Quincey on Tuesday. To wit: Holland’s Wikipedia page was hit by what we can only assume is an unhappy Detroit Red Wings fan. Surely, the page will be changed back to its usual form at some point, but the altered intro paragraph lingered for awhile on Wednesday afternoon...

Holland after tough day: 'We'll keep kicking tires'

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland had a bad day Tuesday, when he was snubbed by the unrestricted free agents he coveted most -- among others, Matt Niskanen (who landed in Washington) and Dan Boyle (who signed with the New York Rangers).
