The Wings are in the same boat as, I'd say, Chicago. Although after losing Lidstrom and not replacing him, I'd put Chicago a clear step ahead.
Still, I see the resemblance. Both teams are playoff quality, both have several elite players. Additionally they each have some glaring holes in the roster... holes that are too obvious and too important for them to challenge seriously for a Cup.
Wings are not winning it all, nor are they missing the playoffs barring a crazy rash of injuries.
I suppose you could say they're in "retooling" mode, although I'm not sure how easy that's going to be or if it will work at all. They're a number of pieces away from being a serious championship contender.
