Yes, but I was talking about defenseman developed recently. As was haroldsnepsts' post.
You do realize that Kronwall was developed by the Wings and came up through the AHL system?
Kronwall came into the NHL eight or nine years ago. Not exactly a recent farm product.
Then we should have signed that Erickson guy instead of Ericsson. Maybe he actually plays physical.
Erickson is a defenseman that would be a 2nd pairing on many other teams in the NHL. He is another player that has come up through the system.
