Very true. I was going to mention his injury troubles, but I figured Wings fans would say he sucked anyway. While Anaheim shouldn't be a losing team next year, they are coming off a losing season, and Whitney might thrive there. Especially since he'd be option 2 behind Fedorov, and we saw two years ago how option 2 can do well in Anaheim(Sykora, when Kariya was still there).

I think his troubles in Detroit were a bit of injury troubles, and the fact that he wasn't an as big of part of Detroit's offense.
