The problem I'm observing with their retooling is they haven't gotten a great player in the draft in many years, some decent to good ones I'm sure but no Datsyuk or Zetterberg let alone a Lidstrom, and they were completely shut out in the UFA market. That's because Holland is still trying to sell the Red Wing mystique and expecting top UFAs to sign for less when they now are signin for way more. They don't have an excess of anything to trade and their first rounders are middling at best. They need multiple top players right now especially on defense.

Maybe IF they could retool they may have a couple more good years but I have seen Detroit try to do so and not.
