Nickname for Detroit, whose team the Detroit Red Wings are currently the defending Stanley Cup champions. Their previous coach, Scotty Bowman, who retired at the end of last year's season, has the most records held by any NHL coach - including most Stanley Cup victories. Current players on Detroit's team are some of the best in the entire NHL, including Steve Yzerman, Sergei Fedorov, Brendan Shanahan, Igor Larionov, Kris Draper, Luc Robataille, Brett Hull, and Nicklas Lidstrom.
Therefore, unknown poster, if you wish to call Hockeytown an unfitting nickname for Detroit, I suggest you name a town better suited for it.
The Wings play especially well in Hockeytown because of their devoted fans.
