                They have the most draft picks of any team, in exchange for 3 bad years, I wouldn't call it a demise but rather a rebuild unless nothing happens for them in the next 5 years.

                  People say that Ken Holland made the wings win all the cups, it was Scotty Bowman’s magic.

                    Should have mentioned that Hossa won three cups with Hawks. For a non-hockey fan it makes Hossa look like bizarro Durant

                          whyd you gloss over 2013? that was the greatest last gasp of the wings in the playoffs. They gave the Hawks EVERYTHING they had.

                            I just want a Canadian team to win. Its been soo long,I think 92-93 season with the Canadiens. Just frustrating that all the actual Canadian players are on usa teams. Atleast we have some big Olympic wins,which really shows how great this Country is at hockey.

                                          They should do the blackhawks from 2009 to 2018 or 19 like if you agree

                                                  They were a bad non call on a Crosby dive from winning it all in 09 and a few bad calls against the hawks in 13 from making it to the finals.

                                                      as a 32-year old Red Wings fan, I must admit that I'm not mad about the rebuild/end of the dynasty. I'm grateful that I was able to witness my team win championships as a child in 97/98, teen in 2002, and college kid in 2008. so many RW fans either are too young to remember the 90s cups, or old enough to remember the Dead Wings era. I feel blessed to have been born when I was born. Sure, it sucks that it all fell apart, but man, FOUR CUPS in my lifetime? That was fun/awesome and I think someday Stevie will get us back there. Until then, we'll cherish the memories and root for the current team!

                                                                Ken Holland was nothing more than a yes-man who spent Mike Ilitch's money and heeded the advice of talent evaluaters... such as Scotty Bowman. Scotty Bowman was the most instrumental figure in the Detroit Red Wings dynasty.
                                                                Ken Holland was unable to draft and acquire talent as well as manage the salary cap once his colleagues in ancillary positions moved on.
                                                                Ken Holland was the sole reason why the Detroit Red Wings even had to rebuild.

The suggestion that he went to Detroit to finally win the Cup makes me wonder how old was the person who wrote the script for this edition of Collapse.

Im glad they kept it going. Because seeing them again after losing to them in 08. Is what made beating them in 09. As freaking good as it was. A decade later. Free drinks in any bar I see you at in Pittsburgh Max Talbot. Had to be the best day of your life.

The primary goal was to extend the playoff streak while not really being competitive and mortgaging the future to do it.
