For the Wings to prove numerous analysts who are predicting another playoff-less season wrong, there will need to be some big individual seasons.
There are many Wings who fall into that category.
Here are five who are capable of rebound seasons in 2019-20:
After enduring his worst professional season, Abdelkader has nowhere to go but up.
Abdelkader only had 19 points (six goals, 13 assists) in 71 games, with a minus-14 rating. Whether statistically or from a physical standpoint, Abdelkader simply had little impact last season.
Now 32, and with younger forwards being moved into the lineup, it’s fair to wonder whether Abdelkader can rebound sufficiently.
But Abdelkader said last month he’s worked on his speed and quickness this summer, attempting to adjust to today’s ever-increasingly fast game. There appears determination on Abdelkader’s part to succeed in whatever role being presented him.
The Wings need Abdelkader to return to at least a 10- to 15-goal form.
