To me it is two problems.

My biggest issue is just development. It's already been said, but a lot of our players should have been sheltered longer with good vets that they could learn from.

Datsyuk and Zetterberg learned from Yzerman and Co. Now Detroits younger players are learning from Datsyuk.

We had Hemsky and Horcoff lol. You don't learn much from those guys. We have thrown our rookies into the fire.

That is managements fault.

Coaching changes I blame as well. How can you get in a groove and learn systems when they change every year?

Besides all of this, it still does not take blame away from the players. They have shown pathetic efforts and repeat the same mistakes over and over and over again.

It would help if the forwards came back to help the D more as well.

There is still onus on the players. Act like you give a damn. Try to forecheck, try to hit, try to hustle....
