The bad news is the Red Wings were really bad last season. The good news is that there is only one way to go from here and that is up.

The 2020-21 Red Wings roster, thanks to some moves by GM Steve Yzerman, is going to look a bit different than it did this past season, though some things will remain the same.

On Tuesday, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News released a piece in which he projects what the Red Wings line combinations will look like next season.

Take a look.
