People shouldn't be complaining about getting fleeced in the Legwand deal. The team got fleeced in losing Yzerman and Nill.
This. Jim Nill and Steve Yzerman are showing everyone how its done. These teams are showing strides towards improvement. If you sit there and "stand pat" year after year while the team falls farther down the standings, what motivation would anyone have to go to Detroit? Why would anyone take less to play in Detroit? Why would anyone pick Detroit at this moment? We don't have the "shot at a Cup" shine anymore. Not when you're barely qualifying for the playoffs and haven't gone beyond the 2nd round since 2009. At this rate, its only a matter of time before Holland starts looking at his options of trading Datsyuk and Zetterberg for prospects. If you're not trying to win now, then why keep them around?
