Post Lockout Detroit is not the same as Pre-lockout Detroit.

Part of that, IMO, is due to the cap. We can't trade for everyone's overpriced, washed up stars at the deadline anymore.

Part of it, IMO, is due to the fact that the Wings have lost many fan favorites over the years -- yzerman, Shanahan, Fedorov, the grind line.

Part of it is due to the fact that we lack easy-to-identify-with North American stars.

And part of it, IMO, is that the Wings were damaged by the lockout.
