We need more Umberger/Franzen type of players? yes I agree, but why don't we continue to let our young players continue to develop, just like Umberger/Franzen did.

Look at Datsyuk, 3 or 4 years ago everyone talked about how talented he was but everyone also talked about how he was soft and disapeared in the playoffs...what happened this year? He's developped into the player he is today because the Wings gave him that opportunity

Improving by the UFA market is not a must...improving from within is
And without those two you REALLY think we could have made it to the post-season?
