Bob Wojnowski The Detroit News Published 10:59 PM EDT May 7, 2019 He could’ve chosen the easy path and stayed, accepted the money without the pressure, taken the executive title without the power. And for a week or so, Ken Holland thought about the ring to it — Red Wing for Life, a ceremonial bow on a great career. That’s what he could’ve done, but at his competitive core, that’s not who he is. Holland has more to do. And in his mind, he has more to prove. I say, good for him, for refusing to be defined by timelines, for wanting to show what he has left, and in some ways, validate what he’s done. This is the outcome I always suspected, that Steve Yzerman’s arrival would signal Holland’s departure. It’s not acrimonious, but it was probably best not to test the longtime friendship between the two. And besides, an enticing (and lucrative) challenge awaits Holland, 63, in Edmonton. He signed a five-year, $25-million contract to … [Read more...] about Wojo: Ken Holland leaves Red Wings, eager to prove a point

Matt Charboneau The Detroit News Published 7:42 PM EST Dec 24, 2018 East Lansing — When it comes to a football recruit being listed as an athlete, it often means the player could play any number of positions. It’s just a matter of finding the right spot. That journey can be a quick one or one that takes a year or two — or longer. Take former Michigan State running back Jeremy Langford, who was listed as an athlete coming out of Westland John Glenn. He went from running back, to defensive back — where he scored his first touchdown — to wide receiver back to running back. He finished in the top 10 in career rushing yards as a Spartan and second with 40 touchdowns while helping Michigan State win the Big Ten and the Rose Bowl in 2013. For Julian Barnett, the quest might not be which position he plays, but how many. “Just all over the place,” Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said when talking about the 2019 recruiting … [Read more...] about Julian Barnett to play ‘all over the place’ for Michigan State
