Bowman, Devellano, Nill, Andersson. These are Hockey minds.
If you think Holland is the brains, then you are stuck in 2008. 3 cups have followed Scotty to Chicago. Nill has turned Dallas into a powerhouse. The Wings? Squat.
"But they have 407 consecutive playoffs..."
A little clue for everyone - 16 out of 30 teams make the playoffs in the NHL. The Red Wings spend up to the cap ceiling every year. Finishing 15th every year isn't all that special.
Architect of the 02' team. Architect of the 98' team. Architect of the 08' team. Drafts insanely well. If it were easy to make the playoffs every year then more teams would do it right? Get over it the guy is a good GM. Hadn't had much success since 09' he has to get the job done now, but don't take away from what he's done.
