The Free Press’s Helene St. James spoke with Ken Holland, Tomas Tatar and Mike Green about the Petr Mrazek trade to Philly and the fact that the team is “open to business,” and 3 quotes stood out.
Holland acknowledged what a turnabout it’s been with Mrazek, who two years ago figured as the Wings’ goalie of the future. The 2016-17 season, however, saw Mrazek struggle in net, and he ruffled team personnel off ice with his attitude and work ethic.
“Sometimes there’s things that I think about certain situations I can’t tell you people,” Holland said. “I don’t think it’s fair to all the people involved.”
“He will be missed,” Tatar said. “He’s a great guy. We all wished him good luck in Philly. He was pretty excited. He talked to the general manager from Philly, they had a great talk. It’s a new chapter for him. He will be battling for a playoff spot so good for him.”
And Mike Green:
Green hasn’t played since hurting his neck last Thursday, but he skated Tuesday and said he should be ready in another day or two.
As for the possibility of being moved before Monday, Green said that “my mind is always open.”
