More Thoughts on What Went Wrong

I'm sure these thoughts are going to keep coming to us over the summer as we try to determine what went wrong this year and the last couple years. But this is something that occurred to me watching these defensive teams roll right through to the conference finals.

The Wings have traditionally been good at creating offense: gaining control in the offensive zone, positioning players and passing until the perfect shot presents itself, and then striking. What we haven't been good at, from what I can see, is capitalizing on the mistakes of opponents. When someone turns it over and it lands on a Red Wing stick in the slot, we rarely put it away. I don't know if we just don't have the killer instinct or aren't practiced enough at getting shots away quickly, but it's something I'd like to see the Wings work on.
