So it's either a) you're not very familiar with anything in and around the NHL besides the Red Wings org. or b) (and this wouldn't suprise me) You are like so many other people on here who argue irrelevant points by literally contriving up things that aren't true whatsoever.
Either way, I am not very keen on giving any argument you make much consideration.
