Even if you don't believe the organization harms players with slow development -- it's pretty obvious the team harms a player's income earning ability.
It goes both ways. Yes, the prospects get shortchanged a bit. But they also see Cleary and Bertuzzi and think they're going to get taken care of when they're older. If anything, the Wings organization is putting out the message that if players are loyal to them when they're young, the Wings will be loyal back when they're old.
I know you hate everything about that message, but I don't see it as nearly as toxic as you think.
