Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Red Wings lost only once in October. But six losses in their first ten games in November hinted that Detroit, the reigning President's Trophy winner (109 points), probably won't prove as strong in the regular season as it has in recent years. The Red Wings have some good young players, but overall they are not a young team. But since Detroit has no salary cap room to speak of, it must succeed as is, needing to avoid serious injuries, and looking for one more strong Stanley-Cup run from its veterans. After getting bounced from the playoffs in the first round in 2002-03, and in the second round in 2003-04, Detroit is hoping its strong nucleus fares much better under its new coach and under the new rules in the NHL.
