24. Detroit Red Wings

Previous: No. 26

The Red Wings have 18 points in as many games this year at an 8-8-2 record, but are 4-5-1 in the last 10 games. They have given up 49 goals and scored 51 goals. They are sitting almost absolutely average, which actually might have most fans happy for the Red Wings with where expectations were entering the year.

At this point in the season, there is not enough to say the Wings will be moving up the rankings anytime soon, but the certainly haven’t been the worst team in hockey by any means.
