The Detroit Red Wings, a team surrounded by question marks following the departure of Nicklas Lidstrom, Brad Stuart and Tomas Holmstrom, didn't help their case one bit during their opening game against the St. Louis Blues.
To say that the Red Wings were disengaged and unattached would be an understatement. To call them rusty would be doing them a favor. Was this a case of Detroit finally being outmatched, or were the Red Wings just not ready to go after one week of training camp?
It's hard telling at this point, but one game into the season things aren't looking very good in Detroit.
So is there any good news after the embarrassing effort that the boys in Red and White put forward against the Blues in their 2013 opener? Lets do some digging.
