The Detroit system works where the young guys have to serve huge apprenticeships before advancing. Unfortunately, the guys above them aren't that much better. In a sense it is McLellan not recognizing the difference between SJ and Det. Part of that issue is DW not hanging onto guys and getting a bit trade happy because he didn't get enough good culture into the guys he had. Detroit started with culture first and does everything to keep guys around who embody the culture, even on the lower lines.
Agree totally on both, too many castoffs of players whom should have remained and, we all know the discussion on T.M.
