  1. Time for jäger to retire while he is still better he has declined a lot it will be embarrassing to see holland trade for him since he likes old players. Go away from him holland let him land anywhere but detroit please.

    • Babcock likes the vets, but has softened on the stance since how the kids did last season getting them to the playoffs. Holland likes the young kids to mature in the AHL before calling them up.
