Players from within the organization

03 July 2014 - 10:19 PM

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?
