The Wings lose Lidstrom and Stuart, and everyone assumed they'd land one of, if not both Shultz and Suter. Instead they don't get either, and they don't get Parise...

With aging forwards and a defensive group that took a huge hit it will be interesting to see what they do. We all know they thought Suter would be Lidstroms successor, but instead they got nothing. The time it took Suter decide also cost them the oppoprtunity to land someone like Souray, Garrison, or Salvador. Wouldn't be surprised if they sign Matt Carle now.

For once, could the Red Wings be fighting for a playoff spot? Or Could they make an offer sheet for Weber? A trade?

Red Wing fans kind of annoy me tbh, so for once it's good to see things not go their way - but it should be interesting to see what they do between now and the start of the season.
