Average Wings

from Damien Cox at ESPN,
Soon, the Tigers won't be a smoke screen for the Red Wings, who went on a four-game western road trip last week and returned having scored just six goals, including three in their final three outings, all defeats. For more than a decade, the Wings have been one of the classiest squads in the league with a lineup that more often than not played gorgeous, puck-controlling hockey and featured dominant stars with magical talents. ...But beyond the points, there's a greater sense that the swagger has been lost in Detroit, that this is no longer a franchise that begins games with a one-goal lead just because the opposition knows it doesn't have the same talent quotient as the Red Wings.
