They were put through the minors because there was no ROOM for them in the NHL. They were given the opportunity to succeed because they had a buffer.

And I really, really don't think you understand how bad Dan Cleary has been for the past two seasons.

The Detroit system has always been to keep kids in the minors. The reason there is no room is because they fill those spots with veterans until the kids are ready. That way, when you have a bad run of injuries like last year, the kids that come up are capable of contributing.

And yeah, Cleary isn't very good - but it's a one year deal. Like Eamon said, try having David Clarkson's contract to deal with.

You're not listening. Staying in the minors until you're 23 does not, DOES NOT, make you a better hockey player. Playing with HOF talent does.

And it's YET ANOTHER one year deal. I don't think you quite grasp how good we are at signing short contracts for people who have no business being on the roster. We've had David Clarkson twice over in number of contract years tied up in a bunch of players we don't need.

Players don't just get good because they play with Hall of Famers.

They get better playing in Detroit's system and learning how to play the game properly. Yes, coming up and playing with good players that they learn from helps a lot, but if it was a simple as that the Oilers would still be competitive.

So you agree with me that just stashing people in the A is a bad idea, which is what Detroit has always done because their roster has been stacked, but is now doing because Holland is a MORON.

Judging by how well Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan and Jurco played when called up, I'd say letting them develop with the Griffins is great for them.
