Perhaps the best american hockey team to win more cups then any other american can. they had 6, 1 Terry Sawchuk,
7 Ted Lindsay, 9 Gordie Howe, 10 Alex Delvecchio, 12 Sid Abel, and 19 Steve Yzerman. they have a 19 playoff streak
going to 20. the sad part about this team is thier cocky fans

Good team whose stats are incredibly beefed up by the fact that they play in the Central Division which is easily the weakest in the Western Conference AND the NHL overall. 24 of their 82 games have been played this year against Columbus, St-Louis and Chicago. All of those teams are struggling like hell to get a win every 5-10 games. They're just no match for Detroit who gets all those free points with almost no effort. Despite all this, Detroit does indeed rock and is one of the better teams in the league. Still, if they played in a better division, they would have at least 30 less points or so.
Detroit Red Wings Fan: Wow, our Wings are so good. They beat Chicago which doesn't even have half the wins they have! It's so amazing. We truly have the best team even though everybody else has to play often against way better teams.

One of the original six hockey teams and the most corrupt. Full of old players. Basically they buy their way to victory much like the Yankees or the Lakers. No one likes the Red Wings but two people:

1. People from Michigan

2. Bandwangon faggots who know nothing about hockey.
Hockey fan: The only thing worst to come from Michigan than the Detroit Red Wings is ICP and Juggalo fags.
