Still a good team that outplays teams most night just prone to bone headed decisions.
This is probably the case. Even if the Wings miss the playoffs, that probably won't be a sure thing by the trade deadline due to about 11 or 12 teams being within a few points of making/missing the playoffs on April 3rd. So teams that will be sellers are the ones that use a realistic assessment of their team to compete in the playoffs versus simply how many points they are behind the #8 spot in the conference.
If any team has the cachet to be sellers in order to be a better team in the future than simply trying to scramble for a playoff spot with little expectations of winning the Cup - it's the Wings. Detroit has been the standard of excellence for a long time and have earned the right to look big picture at the expense of the short term. Course, that's just my opinion - Holland may see things differently.
