Ken Holland served 22 years as the Detroit Red Wings' General Manager before his jump to the GM's job with the Edmonton Oilers. His accomplishments as GM in Detroit include, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Stanley Cup Finals, 5 Conference Finals, 4 President's Trophies and 19 consecutive years of making the playoffs. This list of accomplishments has, in all likilhood, guaranteed his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The article below is by longtime Red Wings beat writer, Ansar Khan of MLive.com, and lists what the writer feels are Holland's best moves and his worst as Detroit's GM. Among his best are the trades for Dominik Hasek and Chris Chelios. Also, his signing of Brian Rafalski is listed as one of his career highlights. His mistakes are headlined by the signings of Uwe Krupp and Darien Hatcher along with the lengthy contract extension for Justin Abdelkader.

Honestly about as smooth a transition in Detroit as one could've hoped. I know Holland took the first GM job thrown his way instead of semi-retiring, but Detroit wrangled Yzerman from TBay and look prime for a rebuild and eventual renaissance.
