Detroit has been dealing with some disappointing performances in 2013-14.

The Detroit Red Wings are still adjusting to their move to the Eastern Conference, and their coaching staff is still trying to find the key to success.

Injuries to star forwards Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg would put a strain on any lineup, but the pressure is mounting on those who are already underwhelming. Although it remains relatively early in the season, there has been concern in the Joe Louis locker room.

Inconsistent or disinterested play is causing a lot of problems for an already depleted lineup with Datsyuk, Zetterberg and rookie defenseman Dan DeKeyser out. Whether it is high expectations or a sizable contract weighing on key players, Detroit is trying everything it can to shape up before it’s too late.

Some players have worked to shoulder the load, but others appear to have set up shop in coach Mike Babcock’s doghouse. These players are the most disappointing Red Wings so far in 2013-14.
