The Red Wings’ perspective might be skewed

For the record, the Red Wings have Niklas Kronwall (32) Jonathan Ericsson (29) and Kyle Quincey (28), and, for example, the Winnipeg Jets aren't running anyone over the age of 29 out on defense, and the Wild only have Keith Ballard who has reached 30. Still, having a squad that doesn't have anyone pushing 50 is a step up for the Red Wings. Kudos to the Wings on their youngish defense!
