The Red Wings lost a step last season and were finally knocked out of the playoffs by division rival Nashville in Round 1. Each year the same question is asked of the Red Wings: are they too old? While they've done a pretty good job of shrugging off those suggestions recently, the Red Wings will have to prove it all over again to some onlookers.

Today's Puck Panel looks at the good and the bad surrounding the Red Wings and explains why THN pegged them to finish No. 7 in the Western Conference.
