Why does everyone forget that Nik Lidstrom was the SOLE reason for the "Detroit" model
also, buying talent to fill holes..Det. had a 4th line that consisted of Hull, and Robitaille,...kind of hard for any rookie to crack that line up, ready or not, it had nothing to do with "proper" player development. they didn't "rush" prospects because they were one of the big spending teams, like COL, and NYR that used money to fill holes pre-salary cap era.
