Red Wings among NHL's free agent 'losers' so far, CBSSports writer says
Free agency isn't over yet, but the Detroit Red Wings swung and missed at their two biggest targets, Ryan Suter and Zach Parise.
And while the signings of Jonas Gustavsson, Mikael Samuelsson and Jordin Tootoo may help fill some holes, Detroit still is looking to replace top defensemen Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart.
And adding another goal scorer would help, too.
In an evaluation of how things have gone so far, CBSSports.com blogger Brian Stubits lists the Red Wings among the "losers" of free agency.
If Detroit is unable to make another move -- albeit a signing or trade -- Stubits wonders if next season is the one where the franchise starts to slide.
