We currently have 3 AHLers playing for us. Zetterberg and Woolley make under 1 Mil. Dats, Devereaux, Draper, Thomas, Whitney make barely over 1 Mil. Our big money guys (Hatcher, Lang, Hasek) are out.

Also, In the month of December, the wings had Whitney, Thomas, Legace, Hasek, Hatcher, Yzerman, Holmstrom, McCarty, Zetterberg, and Chelios OUT. During that span, the wings had 8 AHLers in their lineup. During that period, they went 8-1-1-1.

The Wings continued to win without roughly 30 million dollars worth of their salary not playing. Kind of blows that whole theory that the wings need superstars to win it out of the water. Not to mention our 2 best players (Draper and Datsyuk earn a combined 3.2 Million)

Not to mention, we could win games without Cujo and Dom, just Legace. That blows away 14 million right there. Besides the big money guys haven't done much for us with the exception of ol' reliable Lidstrom.
