What you need is good development(which we have done well in it seems), Strong team identity, Good strategy, Good coaching, Good Gm, Chemistry etc. There are more factors that contribute to a great team than finishing at the bottom of standing for many years. Not to mention doing that sucks for fans who want a contender every year and they should. There is the Minors for a reason, you have an NHL team you compete for the playoffs no matter what.
You're joking right? Take Detroit out of the equation. What do you have?

Bottom feeder > drafts ELITE talent out of the lottery multiple years in a row = CONTENDER

The Pens
The Caps
The Hawks
The Bolts

Shall we go on..... ?

Detroits Euro scouting is bizarre and difficult to duplicate.

Teams being handed top 5 picks in strong drafts a few years in a row..... thats the new ROAD TO SUCCESS

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man
