With the Detroit Red Wings finally moving away from Ken Holland and bringing in Red Wings legend Steve Yzerman as their new general manager their rebuild has finally begun, even if they never have acknowledged that they are.
The Red Wings are going to be going through some more growing pains theses next few seasons, but as we’ve learned with Yzerman when he was with Tampa Bay is that patience will prevail as Yzerman has some messes to clean up from the old regime, and rebuild the organization from within.
There is some good youth on this team, and if Yzerman can unload some of these bad contracts and get some new players in the system it would be a benefit for the organization.
