The Score posted a set of power rankings this morning, and their “New Year’s Resolution” is for the Red Wings’ fans to be patient, which is both an incredibly wise recommendation, and one that’s hard to follow:
24. Detroit Red Wings (15-15-3)
Previous rank: 22nd
Be patient. There’s no way Steve Yzerman would entertain any other method when it comes to building his team, but Red Wings fans need not jump the gun either. The building blocks for Detroit’s roster are mostly in place, so let 2022 be a precursor of what’s to come.
