How Bad Are The Detroit Red Wings?

02/04/2020 at 6:18pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

► Let’s start with the record. The Wings are 12-38-4, with a league-low 28 points. For perspective, the team ahead of them, Los Angeles, has 43 points — 15 points better, or the equivalent of 7.5 games in baseball/football/basketball.

Let that sink in for a moment. The Wings have won 12 of 54 games.

►The Wings were last in the NHL with 110 goals scored, working out to a last-place 2.04 goals per game. Anaheim, in 30th place in the category, has scored 20 more goals than the Wings.

► The Wings were also last with 206 goals allowed, fittingly, and had the worst goals against average (3.81) in the NHL. New Jersey was next with 180 goals allowed, so the Wings have allowed 26 more goals than the next worst defensive team..

►That goal differential between the two numbers, a negative-96, is by far the worst in the league. New Jersey is next at minus-46 — half of the Wings’ total.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
