from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
The Red Wings have missed the playoffs for three consecutive seasons, and under new general manager Steve Yzerman, are looking to end that slide as soon as possible.
How they improve, change, add to or subtract, that stockpile of players obviously will decide how soon the losing ends.
Whose individual stock is highest right now? Who's is among the lowest?
The Detroit News takes a stab at ranking the top 50 players in the organization, given success at the NHL level, age, potential, contract situation, and position played.
It’s a list with plenty of hope for the future. But potential has to be realized by those young players, because the present roster appears to have hit its limit and is rather stagnant.
