So let me ask, when you say we are "built to beat" Detroit do you mean we are intending to be built in their image, only better? or that we are designed to exploit their weaknesses?
I see what you are saying as my original post wasn't really as clear as I thought. As there really isn't a team that is built differently in our division by building to beat the Wings we are building to beat the division.
They have been at the top of the division for so long that all of the other teams have to try to succeed against them. I don't know why one of the other teams hasn't gone out and tried to build a team like Anaheim (not as easy as it looks?) but it won't be us as we can't afford that roster. Would it work? Could you spend the time developing young talent with that kind of size without firing coach and gm for not winning? Could you even bring in enough talent through the draft to even matter?
