    TBH, the Post-Lemieux to Crosby era Penguins may be able to appear.

      Detroit got Karma. They saw the Blackhawks get good and they ran with their tail between their legs into the Eastern Conference, where they disappeared and have never since reappeared. Breaking up a great rivalry forever rather than let little brother have his moment. The Blackhawks breaking their backs in game 7 OT in 2013 to send them out remains the spiritual high point of the Blackhawks dynasty.

      Det was also a pre-cap juggernaut franchise used to pre-cap ways of doing things. Slow to adjust. It bit them.

      btw speaking of the Blackhawks, inevitably there will be a similar vid made about them, but it will probably be incorrectly done. It really has just been an incompetent GM doing incompetent GM things. Combined with Toews disappearing for years at a time since he signed his big deal. The Seabrook deal of course is the great albatross that never ends but there have been so many mistakes it's just one among many. Bickell given a huge deal then they have to give away Teuvo Terevainen just to get someone to take Bicks. And so on. That said, would not shock me if Hawks made the playoffs this year. The moron coach just needs to wake the hell up and make Lehner the starter 3/4 of the games.

        It's been a tough few years as a Wings fan, but man from 1990 until they missed... what a ride. I was a kid then and i'll never forget the sheer dominance in the 90s, the incredible rivalry with the Av's, and that incredible 2002 team. Hopefully Stevie Y can bring the magic back to the team. We have some really good young skilled players, but it may take another year or two of building the team and building team chemistry.

          Scotty Bowman and Jimmy Devalano made the wings good not Holland.

                What goes up must come down. We were spoiled in Detroit with the team we had, but as Steve Dangle said when going over a 2017 Wings loss against Toronto, 'Wings remind me of The Leaf's when they were last in the league. Young, eager, fun to watch, full of heart, and missing one key piece (For Tor it would later be Matthews).' Still holding out hope that we get a higher draft pick next year compared to what we've been getting the last few years.

                  I don't believe calling it a collapse isn't right. Going on a 25 year streak is nothing to laugh at. Holland did well keeping the streak going, but his refusal to give up his job doomed his franchise. It's unfortunate that he's in charge of a younger team, but Detroit deserved better. Now that Yzerman is back, that team will surely rebuild and be back in the playoffs within the next 3 years.

                    The premise is ridiculous. They made the playoffs consecutively for a quarter century and won 4 cups. I'd say they were pretty damn successful maintaining a dynasty. Sorry 25 years isn't enough for you.....

                            As a fan of the Winnipeg Jets, the team that Detroit finally killed in 1996 ...ya ..I don't feel bad at all for this. Just like never felt bad for any of Edmonton's troubles. Us Jets fans are passionate that way.

                              ...and now they have Larkin, Mantha, Bertuzzi, Hronek, DeKeyser and Yzerman finally as a GM. Not too bad, if you're asking me.

                                  What other fans of other sports teams would switch places with the Wings after all of this? (My guess is that it would be a lot)

                                              Might also have something with switching from the West to the East. Not sure, just saying.
                                              As a Ducks fan I freakin hated facing the Wings in the Playoffs.
