Red Wings - First Impressions
First impressions of the 2007-08 Detroit Red Wings: This is a good team. They should be able to win their division. The recent west coast road trip wasn't good for my sleep patterns, but from what I saw this team is impressing me already this year. The team is showing more toughness than in the past. Team speed looks to have improved over last year. Defensively the team needs to improve. So far this year the Red Wings are 17th in Goals Against. Some positives are team scoring (2nd in Goals For), and the improved power play (22.22%, 5th in the league) Overall what I see leaves me feeling optimistic and looking forward to the hockey season.
