Though this will not go down as one of the greatest fights of all-time, it is certainly good to see the Red Wings standing up for themselves with much more regularity than they did early on in the season.

Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford has message for his haters on social media

When it comes to lightning rods in Detroit sports, Matthew Stafford may be the biggest of all-time.

Whether you listen to local sports radio, read the papers, partake in social media, or just have conversations around the water cooler, you have likely heard plenty people give their opinion on the Detroit Lions signal caller. Some of those opinions praise Stafford and insist he is an elite quarterback who is stuck on a crappy franchise, while others are convinced that the former No. 1 overall pick is the main reason why the Lions have not been able to get over the hump for the past decade.

If you have not already done so, hop on Twitter or Facebook the next time the Detroit Lions take the field and search for “Matthew Stafford.” Then take a few minutes to browse through the thousands of comments that are either loving him or bashing him.

Over the past couple of seasons, the number of Stafford haters on social media has continued to grow and to get louder. In fact, when you read through many of the comments, you can sense pure anger towards the Lions quarterback.

Ken Holland the architect of Steve Yzerman’s return

Well, who would have thought that?

According to a report from Sportsnet, it was none other than Ken Holland who was the leading force behind Steve Yzerman’s return to the Red Wings to take over his position, and has been working on it for months.

Of course, it was Ken Holland who declined this move the first time around in 2010. Red Wings ownership allegedly wanted to tap Yzerman as the successor to Holland, who didn’t want to move “upstairs” just quite yet. Yzerman then went to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and for the past nine years, has built them into a powerhouse and yearly contender for the Stanley Cup.

Holland, who has been the team’s GM since 1997, was asked earlier this month on 97.1 The Ticket about remaining with the Red Wings.

“That’s a great question,” Holland said. “I don’t have an answer for you. But I am a proud, proud Red Wing and I love being a Red Wing and I love living in Michigan. We’ve put roots down. I love the fans, I love the people that work for the Red Wings, I love the young players.

“Certainly would be very difficult for me to leave.”
