The prospect pool is good, a new set of possible top6 forwards with Nyquist, Tatar, Jarnkrok and possibly Brunner are on their way in to lessen the fall of the decline of the "big3", while Fil hopefully stays the same as last year or even improve a bit further. Those prospect are not ready right now to carry the team's offense, but on the other hand Pavel, Z and Mule are far from done contrary to popular belief.

Howard or another goalie, the focus will be at defense. Wings' brass will give it a new shot in free agency next year I'm sure. Smith & Ouellet are very good prospects and very different ones. Sproul, Backman and Marchenko also look like legit NHL prospects at this point. There are plenty of ways to stay competitive but a combo of prospects developing and free agency will imo be the answer for Detroit going forward.
It is important to remember that not many of these guys are gonna pan out, if two or three of all the names you listed meet or succeed expectations then it is a major success.

Hard telling who is going to though, but it is nice to finally have a prospect pool with some talent.
