man!! detoit isn't to as good as a start as i expected...they kept most off their team. but i guess the loss of lagace was bigger than it sounded....Hasek didn't do that bad with the sens but hasn't been the same since the groin injury in the olympics...i hope they inprove or they will not have a chance for the cup...the could also be some major trades going down

Same thing as Ottawa. Both teams who won their Conferences last year are in basically the same predicament. They don't have solid consistent goaltending and their top lines need to step up.... BIG TIME.

I don't think goaltending is the issue. The problem is that Zetterberg and Datsyuk are not playing to their potential. They need these guys scoring if they want to win. Lidstrom and Schneider have been good - especially on the powerplay. Could this be the year that Detroit returns to mediocrity? Makes sense since that is where they were before Yzerman.

Yeah, with Hašek and Datsyuk and Zetterberg and Holmstrom and Lidstrom, I'd have expected more from the Red Wings

They're starting to show their age. They've got the 2 oldest players in the NHL--Hašek and Chelios, who are 42 and 44 (almost 45) respectively. And they've got 11 other players over 30.

One thing I've learned over the years, never count the Red Wings out. I hate them with everything I am, but they still surprise everyone and will make the playoffs every year no matter what. They have such a good scouting system, and their depth has never been questionable. It just sucks that the fans in Detroit are so indifferent to the team, and basically show up for marquee games, and the last 3 games in a playoffs series.

I HATE seeing empty seats in an NHL arena, especially when the city has "Hockeytown" attached to it.

I guarantee you they will go on a 7-8 game winning streak before christmas time, and will be on top of the division trying to secure home-ice advantage down the stretch. Plus, when you've got gaffers like Chicago, St Louis and Columbus in your division, you just need to play a little bit above average and you'll be fine.

Im not going to say the Red Wings suck, but they are having a terribly slow start. They need to get rid of the old guys. They will come around but they won't be presidents trophy candidates this year.
