We are about as far from being the Red Wings as a team could get. To model our team after theirs would mean we would have to have a collection of high end nhl talent at the ready. That clearly isnt the case.
If we sent all our high end rookies to marinate in the minors for three or four years we wouldnt be able to ice a team.
Sure could. It would just be made up of scrubs and fringe players. So really no different from what we have been seeing.
Same team minus it's top scorers and more interesting talents... so not at all the same team.
Yeah, god knows how the team would have done without all the top scorers and most interesting talent. Might have finished last or something.
This point was beaten to death last year, and you blogger types were wrong then.
What point is that? That sometimes it's a good idea not to rush young players into the NHL? Because on that score, there's nothing settled. if you're talking about the ELC thing, even that's not settled yet. But whatever floats your boat.
