Yup, if you have a team that is utter crap for 10 years, you too can build through the draft like the Hawks and win 3 cups. Dave Talon and Stan Bowman built this team smart.
Unless your management is as worthless as Edmonton.
So you liked watching the Wings cry in 2009?
I hate the Hawks but we as Red Wings should be flattered by their success...we pounded them for years and they used a very similar blue print to build their team and style of play. Stud d man, 3-4 top notch forwards, great role players and not breaking the bank on a goalie. Crawford is a bend don't break style that is very similar to Ozzy. The more I watched TB the more I realized that their team is Stamkos and goes as he goes. They were forturnate to get by us to be honest.
