The Detroit Red Wings have entered the off-season long before they had hoped. 

Their disappointing end came at the hands of the Nashville Predators.  At one point in the season, the Red Wings led the NHL, but injuries threw the entire team off track and they were never able to rebound.

While most of the injured players were back when the playoffs started, many were far from 100 percent healthy.  Despite that, hopes were high that the team would be able to regroup.
