5. Detroit Red Wings
WILD CARD: Xavier Ouellet
The Red Wings are still smarting from the loss of Nicklas Lidstrom, who although he looked like he could play forever, had to call it quits at some point. There is help on the horizon, with Smith and DeKeyser potentially moving up the depth chart in short order. Ouellet is a year or two away, especially since Detroit likes to be very patient with its prospects (DeKeyser aside).
