Hard to "build from within" when the team is committed to making the playoffs every year. If the Wings were to really go with a youth movement, I would support it. But the team is just treading water.
Completely disagree with that. The wings have a ton of NHL talent that can step into action this season. Teams usually only have 3 or 4 players. The Wings farm is loaded. They need to develop and they need to stay healthy. Yes I'm disapointed about missing out on Erhoff. Niskanen Boyle not so much. It's about the right fit. I.think Erhoff fit the other 2 did not. Go with what ya got now or trade for that RH dman.
