Any part of the season start, middle, or end is significant.
The reason Modano was brought into Detroit was to center the third line and give it some scoring punch. You can't give up on it after 6 games. 10% is of the season is not that significant. The first 10% is less significant. The NYI and Leafs are two of the best teams in the conference right now. What if the Wings gave up on Howard after his first 6 games last year? Patience is a virtue my friend. Its not like the Wings are 0-6 here.
