While this is completely true on the prospect side of things, the big reason for it relative to other teams is how backlogged the Detroit system is compared to most with so many drafts worth of players still considered prospects.

Detroits top 25 under 25 would be far less impressive compared to the league than their prospect pool. Guys like Smith, Nyquist and maybe even Tatar would be young roster players in most systems not prospects. As it is they are players 3-4 years from their draft who haven't played significant NHL games yet.
