For many Wings fans, Dylan Larkin is not only the future, but the present of the franchise.
With few other young offensive talents projected to perform exceptionally in the future, Larkin's been given some very large expectations very early in his career.

No, it's just that this was one of the oddest roster makeups in the history of the league.
For starters, October 1983 was the month Steve Yzerman, picked 4th overall in the NHL draft on June 8th in Montreal, began his first of many seasons in the Wings uniform... but it's quite more than just that.
