Sigh. Obviously, it is tough to draw too many conclusions with so many defenseman out of the lineup. As others have said, we need to see the team with Helm, and Ericsson back at a minimum before we can really judge our potential. That said, referring to Ericsson as a necessary cog to our team demonstrates how much we have fallen.

This could be who we are. We have some nice, if aging, forwards and a goalie who is pretty underrated around the league.

The defense is, as most people expected, a dumpster fire. The big surprise thru three games is the lack of offense. When the post-lockout Wings were at their best, the Offense was created in large part by the precision and puck control of the defense core. Even when we are healthy, we lack that in a large way currently. As a result, I expect our offense and, especially the PP to continue to suffer.
