DETROIT (HOCKEYTOWN) REDWINGS
Hey, don't knock the model, it worked and it wasn't in a hope of bailing them out. It was a cup contention model. Remember, for a long time there was a younger core. Heck I remember when Dats was on the 'kid line'. Unfortunately, they did have to deal a bit of the younger talent to bring in ready to go vets. This series with the B's is a perfect example of why wings of past brought in NHL ready players versus relying on "the future" but I agree with the new cap rules the model must also adapt.
