As i look at our current roster i wonder if there is another team in the NHL that is comprised of so many players that have been drafted and that have come up through the organization. Aside from Gustavsson, Miller, and Weiss, every other player currently signed by by Detroit was drafted by the Wings and were "home grown".  If i am missing someone, please advise. It seems this a reflection of the teams inability to sign free agents or make lasting trades. Does anyone know of a team that has so many players that have been "home grown"and so few players added through free agency or trades?

So were Glendening and Lashoff, but I'd still consider those two "homegrown."

It's why we don't have to make trades, or over pay for a UFA, we know how to develop our own players. And there's more good young players on their way.


Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
Pistons

It is remarkable when you consider our draft placements.
