In the midst of a historic streak of 23 consecutive postseason appearances, the Detroit Red Wings remain the envy of the NHL and the model for hockey success.

However, Detroit has finished no higher than fifth in its conference over the last three seasons and could be primed to turn it around this summer.

The Red Wings could use a little bit of everything, but possibly re-signing backup goaltender Jonas Gustavsson could help bring a little more clarity to the big picture.

There are a few big-name free agents that would fit both want and need, but there may be a couple bold and cold decisions that could make for a “perfect” summer for the Red and White.

These are the moves that would make the Red Wings instant Stanley Cup contenders in 2014-15.
