So, should they rebuild, retool or try to be the next Flames?
why would the Red Wings, the most succesful franchise of the last 2 decades, want to emulate the Flames who have either missed the playoffs or gone out in the first round every year but one since 1990? The Red Wings are the masters of draft and development. Look at the Maple Leafs. Now at the Red Wings. Now back at the Leafs. Which team was drafting higher and which team was drafting smarter? They will have a few lean years and possibly miss the playoffs a few times, but they won't be bad long.
