Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg thanked fans for their support during his team's first season at Little Caesars Arena and apologized for the results.
The Red Wings missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, a fate sealed long before Saturday's season-ending 4-3 loss to the New York Islanders on John Tavares' goal with 1:44 remaining in overtime.
The Red Wings (30-39-13) finished 24 points out of the final playoff spot, a gap that might not be bridged anytime soon with a long rebuild Brian Dumoulin Jersey looming.

"It took a while to admit it, but we're in a rebuild," Zetterberg said. "But I think we're doing a lot of right things. We have a lot of picks this Ahmad Brooks Jersey Womens summer (11, including seven in the first three rounds), we got to be lucky and get some http://www.bebekmar.com/john-stallworth-jersey-c-1_18.html good players that could be here for a http://www.cheaprocketssale.com/luc-mbah-a-moute-jersey-c-1_7.html long time. If you look in the past, we've been lucky late in rounds, so luck has a lot to do with it. But then also you got to be able to develop the players that you get and get the most out of them."

At least the Red Wings have some building blocks in forwards Dylan Larkin (team-leading 63 points), Anthony Mantha (team-high 24 goals), Authentic Alshon Jeffery Jersey Andreas Athanasiou and Tyler Bertuzzi.

"When (Bertuzzi) came up and got a chance to play more Jason Peters Authentic Jersey minutes, he showed that he's a really good hockey player," Zetterberg said. "Larks probably took the biggest steps this year. We all know that he's going to be good for us for a long time. http://www.authenticpenguinsshop.com/matt-murray-jersey-c-1_25.html We have players that can take more steps. We've got to be better as a team. I http://www.ky-oo32.com/ryan-kalil-jersey-c-1_37.html think there's a lot of areas where we can improve the way we play. That's something that we're probably going to look over here during the summer."
