Whether it was the team making splashes and trading for Keith Yandle or when the franchise infamously sent out their letter announcing their intention to rebuild (which was mocked at the time but a number of teams have since followed in their footsteps) and sold off players like Ryan McDonagh, Rick Nash, Mats Zuccarello, and Kevin Hayes.

Players like Svechnikov, Erne and Zadina have started to carry the torch for the team, however not enough to change Detroit’s losing ways.
