I think its 95% the bolded part.

Murray is clearly trying to build a Red Wings type organization, with an emphasis on building from within, a consistent coaching system from AHL to NHL, and an understanding that 99% of guys will have to pay their dues. Nobody should ever be handed anything regardless of draft position or name.

A lot of people say that Filatov didn't get a chance to prove himself but its just sad to think how much of a chance he would have gotten if he had stuck it out a bit like everyone else.
