The Hockey News’s power rankings suggest that the Wings have little depth

I don’t happen to believe that the Hockey News’s Jason Chen is correct in suggesting that the Red Wings don’t have any depth, but the Wings are not receiving strong secondary scoring as of yet:

20. Detroit Red Wings (11-9-3, -9. CF%: 26th, xGF%: 15th. Last Week: 26)

Alex Nedeljkovic stole a win which gives them three in a row, even though all of them were close. Beyond the top line and Moritz Seider, the Wings don’t have enough dependable players to lean on.
