The Detroit Red Wings have a number of things to sort out during this training camp.
The first priority for Detroit is to see what Fabian Brunstrom, Ryan Johnson (both pro-tryout invitees), Jiri Hudler, Chris Conner and Cory Emmerton can do in training camp.
I throw Hudler into that list because (by his standards) he had a terrible year last year.
Cory Emmerton is on that list because if he does not make the roster, he would have to clear waivers to be re-assigned to the minors.
The second priority will be to see what new assistant coaches Bill Peters and Jeff Blashill can bring to the team.
Hopefully, Peters and Blashill can bring a renewed sense of defense and penalty killing to Detroit.
Finishing games in regulation should not be an issue for Detroit; they are usually fundamentally sound once they have the lead.
Faceoffs are a pride thing.
As for shootouts, I predict Detroit shoots somewhere between 30-35 percent in the shootout this year.
Take it to the bank: Detroit is a more fundamentally sound team this year than they were last year.
Let's just see how the work ethic is throughout the season.
