Here are three reasons the Detroit Red Wings aren’t doomed just because they didn’t sign Zach Parise and/or Ryan Suter:

1. Even without Nicklas Lidstrom, the Red Wings are still a solid hockey team, led by Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, two of the top players in the world. People focus so much on what the Red Wings don’t have, they often forget what they do have.

2. It’s still early in the off-season. It’s highly likely the Red Wings will still make moves that will improve their roster.

3. More times than not, during the salary cap era, teams regret signing free agents to long-term, mega-buck contracts. They haven’t really been a factor in the latest Stanley Cup championship runs.
