Sure you don't replace a Lidstrom that easily. But the Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall and Franzen still has some pretty good hockey to offer for a few years while Filpulla, Ericsson and White are all 27 and entering their prime.

Their prospect pool is far from being ugly including Smith, Tatar, Frk, Ouellet, Athanasiou, Jurco and Sproul. Never underestimate Detroit system when it's time to developp raw talent.

Sure they've lost some powerhouse potential by losing Lidstrom but throwing them to the garbage right away seems a bit far fetched to me.
The big question with Detroit is if they can find some young stars. Will Nyqvist, Jarnkrok or Tatar (or others?) turn into stars. They will need some help soon.
