This team is possibly the most loved and hated team in the NHL, but their only hated because they have more Stanley Cups than any other American team. So anyone who thinks they suck or have cocky fans can shut their pathetic mouths because they obviously don't know true hockey. They've won 11 cups, and not to mention have been in the playoffs for 20 straight years. Wanna know how difficult that is? Ask Chicago.
Chicago fan: "The Detroit Red Wings fans are so cocky."

Detroit fan: "Only 'cause we win. You can't spell Red Wings without WIN."

Get a Detroit Red Wings mug for your Uncle Bob.
Ten Time Stanley Cup Champion:


A team that is well known for the " feast or famine " persona.

Has lost to the Western Conference Champion three times in a row:

Anaheim Mighty Ducks, 2003, Calgary Flames, 2004, Edmonton Oilers, 2006
All three times before reaching the 3rd Round.

The Red Wings have gone on to win the Stanley Cup every time since 1997 after reaching the Conference Finals.

Always a great Stanley Cup Contender.

One of the great American hockey teams with 11 cups under their belt and 20 strait playoff runs, this is a prestigious team. Mostly hated due to butthurt newfriends, who are mad because their Chicago Blackhawks got beat by the Red Wings again, or because the Red Wings are at the top of the Central-Division and their team isn't.
RW fan: Yeah The Detroit Red Wings won again!

Butthurt newfriend: oh they suck because all there fans are bandwaggoners.

RW fan: right -_- thats why your team is 10-18
