I live out West now and don't follow the Wings as closely when I lived in Corktown and elsewhere in Detroit for decades. Last week I went over the team roster and there were seven or eight players that I did not know or had little knowledge of.
Speaking with old acquaintances in Michigan, some seemed to blame Jimmy Howard for the Wings' early out, but I disagreed. The games with Nashville with close and low scoring.
A low scoring power player, one that was ranked low in the league, was apparent in the Nashville games, seemed to be a weakness for the Wings.
What were some of the common criticism of the Wings during the season and in the playoff games?
