I think they will if they don't get entitled and try to buy their way back into the mix with draft picks and prospects. Holland (and whoever replaces him) has to be honest with himself about the state of his team and let nature take its course.
I think it's hard for a GM who's used to winning to accept the idea of rebuilding, though. They get egocentric and think losing is something that is their fault, and so they try to avoid losing at every turn. But in doing so, they keep themselves from really being able to win either.
So, in other words, the Wings can be a powerhouse again if they embrace the idea that they have to maximize their potential for wins and avoid the mindset that they must minimize losses. As we've seen, sometimes a little controlled losing results in a bigger win down the line. You just can't let your pride get in the way.
