And as far as I remember, Stevie Y was, UH, a 4th overall pick after Detroit stank for almost twenty years. Sound familiar?

The rest is corporate blather, signifying nothing. Good management blah blah. Detroit made one brilliant move,mining Sweden before anyone else. Watch what happens to them the next 5 years. The party is over.
huh, you expected them to be on top forever or something ?

OF course at some point they'll be worse than they were, EVERY teams go trough these cycles, rebuild or not. Just like EVERY team has a top 5 pick or two in their rank, contenders or not.
