28. Detroit Red Wings

Previous: No. 28

Record: 22-24-10 (54 points)

If you watched Sunday’s game between Detroit and Minnesota, you saw the Red Wings’ major issue: a weak back end. The defense was burned again and again while AHL-quality goalie Jared Coreau was flailing away at Minnesota’s shot attempts. This team should stop worrying about history and sell at the deadline.
