The lines are not how Babcock expected or wanted them to be. He's got some guys playing that he doesn't believe should be playing just yet. All in all I think this just a year where they have undergone some major changes and it's too early to say how it will end up by the end of the season.
The Wings have the right management and some stellar players, but they'll need to be healthy and get the right line combinations to see them reach the post season.
