Detroit Red Wings: What This Season Taught Us, and How We Move Forward

I'm still having trouble coming to the realization that the Red Wings are done.

This was an interesting year for the Detroit Red Wings, who, after last year's disappointing season, boomed to the top of the standings at the beginning of the year.

They looked flawless, reminding us of the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 back to back finalist Detroit Red Wings.  Deep. Talented. Confident. All of the above.

Then came the injuries.  Detroit slowly then gave up their top spot to the surging Vancouver Canucks.  A five-game win streak would immediately be followed by a three or four-game losing steak.  The Red Wings couldn't seem to regain any of the consistency they had at the beginning of the season.

The Red Wings knocked off the Phoenix Coyotes with ease, but lost a heartbreaking seven game series to the San Jose sharks in the second round.  

Throughout this season, many things were learned.  With the right moves this offseason, I see the Red Wings being even better next season.  Here are just some of the things we learned and can look forward to.
