The result? An old, declining, sorry excuse for a bottom 6. Wilson has been more aggressive in "win now" than his model franchise, the Red Wings. Even if you can continue to re-sign your top players at hometown discounts, eventually you have nothing left for the bottom 6 and are stuck hoping guys like Gomez and Handzus can get'er'done.
Yeah it's like 2 kids and an old goat, that has never been a recipe for success.
