I wonder why DET never has these issues with young talented players. They all seem to pan out.

Do you guys think they just draft angels all the time and let them sink or swim and they always ****ing swim?

It's called player development. Something we don't have. FFS, if Patches didn't ask to stay in Hamilton he might not even be the player he is today.

Ya, let's draft a talented Belarussian, bring him up at 19 years old and then get pissed that he acted immaturely after we left him to fend for himself in Montreal of all places, not ****ing Columbus or Nashville.

Him and his bro are out partying with the mafia while Sidney Crosby is still sleeping in Mario's basement at 25 years old.

Chris Higgins looks like a 40 goal scorer then becomes (mod edit: garbage). If any of our young players has any hiccups or imperfections or character issues they are DONE. They get no support. We're lucky guys like Price and Subban are destined for greatness because it sure as hell wouldn't come from the organization.
