Sportsnet’s Boylen’s ‘wish list’ power rankings: Rebuild is over? (if you want it?)

Sportsnet’s Rory Boylen posted a “holiday wish list” for each and every one of the NHL’s 32 teams over the course of a set of power rankings this morning, and even I think that his holiday wish for the Wings is a little premature:

20. Detroit Red Wings (14-12-3)
It has been a wonderful start to the season for Wings fans — their team is still alive at the Christmas break! Lucas Raymond is a Calder favourite, Moritz Seider is under the radar but there with him, and still-rookie Alex Nedeljkovic is proving a great, cheap pick up. The wish here is that all of the good from the first two months doesn’t evaporate and that the movement we’re seeing is perhaps indicative of the rebuild being over.

Continued; I’ll take “the rebuild making progress” at this point.

  1. Rebuild is over???, where do these guys think the team is is not rebuilding. Defense is not complete but youngsters may be on the way. To be a Cup contender, soon. Rangers say they rebuilding? Various opinions what rebuild means
    Offense, still need some better offense in the Bottom 6. Who is this Vranek guy, will he stand out or will he be like his past. 3rd line and maybe one more for the Top 6. The 3rd line needs to responsible with their D (like most of the team), be able to give offense and be able to change the Momentum. Really all around tough to play against, Veleno might be a good start.

    Anyway 2 more years in my Crystal ball. Trade Leddy, Tyler needs to bounce back, Givani needs some work to stay on the roster, some sleepers on D. Some help in GR and SHL?
