It'll be tough making the playoffs next season unless we have a huge offseason signing.
We finished 5th this season and the West is getting more and more competitive each year. Also, the Wings looked putrid when Lidstrom was injured late in the season.
It'll likely be a dogfight to get one of those last few spots. A Parise or Suter would make that easier of course.
The Wings looked putrid because they were also missing Datsyuk, Howard, MacDonald, Helm, Eaves, and Ericsson during that same stretch that Lidstrom was out.
