Most of the prospects exist on many teams. i.e. Tampa Bay's T. Johnson.
Find me one team in the league that's had to draft from Detroit's position for the last 24 years that has better prospects. Feel free to use these as refernces
How about overpaying for Quincey?
Quincey's been good.
Resigned Cleary twice.
Kept his promise. Continues to exude organizational class. No harm done on the ice.
Overpaid and signed Franzen and Howard.
Franzen is not overpaid. Howard got fair value at the time. This is all on Howard for not keeping his end of the bargain.
Zidlicky is struggling badly.
Meh. Babcock has other options if he wants to use them. Kindl, for example. Didn't give up much to acquire him.
Nyquist looks small and lost out there.
Now you're just stretching
Never planned for Lidstrom's and Rafalski's departures.
How can you? Without tanking like Florida, you're not getting an Ekblad or Jones or Hannafin. #tankit
Didn't figure out a way to keep Hossa.
IMO, his only major mistake.
Stephen Weiss is on the team but doesn't dress.
Holland's only other mistake. Part of that is on Babcock for not using him properly.
Does any of that ring a bell? Bother you?
Just the Hossa thing.
