I'm fully ready for every one of you to ask me what the flames have done to retool.
And to stay on topic I think the wings should retool. That doesn't mean to trade away their stars such as Datsyuk and Zetterberg, but acquiring younger players, preferably age 22-26, is ideal. Brunner was a great start to that. Detroit also has some good prospects coming up such as Nyquist, Smith and Tatar, although it's seems like Holland has rid most of them at their chance to make the roster by signing guys such as Samuelsson and Tootoo.
If I was Detroit I wouldn't be too worried. So long as they stop trading draft picks for players such as Quincey I think they are in a safe position. Competitive now, and a promising future (yet to be seen).
I agree the Flames are re-tooling. What I'm saying is most fans on HF, Flames and non alike, seem to think that they should have started rebuilding a couple of years ago and I'm comparing Detroit now to Calgary then.
