No. 27: Detroit Red Wings

Previous: No. 27

Record: 26-30-11 (63 points)

The Red Wings are unofficially officially out of the playoffs, which means their 25 years of playoff hockey is coming to an upsetting end. But the team shouldn’t be down in the dumps. Anthony Mantha and Andreas Athanasiou are playing very well, and there’s only more to be discovered from them. Frans Nielsen has turned out to be a good signing for them. Their spot in the standings will get them a good draft pick in the first round.
