The Detroit Red Wings have been a team of polar opposites this season. This has largely been due to their number of underachievers.
While Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg predictably lead Detroit in scoring, the Red Wings have not been getting scoring help from their bottom three lines so far.
In fact, not only has the scoring not been there from most Red Wings players, but Detroit's top four scorers—Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Daniel Alfredsson and Niklas Kronwall—have more points (66) than the rest of the team combined (61).
With that being said, here are the biggest underachievers in Detroit with almost a quarter of the season gone.
