Which is BS, obviously you have to develop guys, but if they’re good enough they play, Clearly.
Detroit develops players because they are always pick mid-late in every round. Those players tend to need more development time.

Certainly, Detroit has made some excellent late round selections, but it's not like anything recent has panned out as well as Zetterberg or Datsyuk.
