from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Here are 20 questions surrounding the Wings as we await official confirmation, and information, regarding next season.
Are the Wings going to be better?
The Red Wings were 17-49-5 last season, with 39 points. The next worst team, Ottawa, had 62 points.
It’s difficult to be that bad in professional sports.
The Wings aren’t going to improve by leaps and bounds, but yes, they can — and will — improve on last season.
They can’t get worse.
In what areas are the Wings better?
Across the board.
Yzerman, and his staff, did a fine job of improving the depth and talent level across the lineup.
Goaltending, defense, forwards, special teams — all of them — are better from a personnel standpoint. Deeper.
There are many more NHL-caliber players in the lineup. That wasn’t always the case last season.
