The Detroit Red Wings are one of the oldest and most successful clubs in the NHL, founded in 1926 as one of the original 6 teams, originally starting as the Cougars, which had carried over when the British Columbia Cougars were sold to Detroit.
The iconic Red Wings’ name came about in the 1930’s, drawing inspiration from the winged wheel of Triptolemus, the ancient Greek figure. Jack Adams and James Norris Snr chose the name, believing that it would fit the club perfectly given the history of Detroit, commonly referred to as Motor City.
They would have much success in the years that followed, consistently making the playoffs throughout the 30’s, even winning their first ever Stanley Cup in 1935-36, and backing it up the next year with another win in 1936-37.
They remained a powerhouse force during the next decade, qualifying for the Final a whopping 7 times, however, only winning on 2 occasions. The 1940s is also remembered for being the decade that they signed one of the sports greatest ever talents, Hall of Famer, Gordie Howe.
Howe, or more affectionately known as ‘Mr Hockey’, would go on to dominate the sport over a 26 year tenure in the NHL, with 25 of those spent at the Red Wings. Mr Hockey played 1,767 games over this time, scoring a ridiculous 1,850 points, and ranking 2nd to Wayne Gretzky for total NHL goals with 801.
Having won 2 Stanley Cups in both the 30’s and 40’s, the 1950’s would become, and still remains, their most successful decade, winning the Cup in 3 of 4 seasons from 1951-1955.
After this period the Red Wings would come close, but ultimately fail to recapture that glory, making the final 6 times over a 40 year period, losing each time, and only taking it to game 7 on one occasion.
The late 1960s to early 1980s were a largely forgettable period for the Red Wings, but everything began to change when they signed a young Steve Yzerman in 1983.
Reminiscent of the signing of Gordie Howe all those years earlier, Yzerman lifted the whole team up, only, unlike with Howe, Yzermans’ impact would be instantaneous. He would go on to lead the team in scoring in his first season in the NHL, and the Red Wings qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 5 seasons.
By 1986 Yzerman was named captain of the Red Wings, a position he would hold right up until his retirement in 2006. Under his captaincy the Red Wings would qualify for the playoffs in all but one season, and won the Stanley Cup in 3 of 4 appearances.
One of the more memorable seasons over this tenure is the 1995-96 campaign, heralded as the most dominant regular season in the history of the NHL, the star studded team went 62-13-7 for the year, setting a still standing record for wins in regular season. While they ultimately lost the Stanley Cup that year, the Red Wings would go on to win the next 2 years in a row.
They remained consistent for the years which followed, picking up 2 more Stanley Cup wins, the most recent of which was in 2007-08, the 11th of the near century old club.
The Red Wings remained amongst the best for the majority of their life in the NHL, however, they have declined in recent years. The 2016-17 campaign marked the first time since the end of the 1980s that the Red Wings would not qualify for the playoffs.
The years since have not been kind to them either, failing to make playoffs year after year, even recording one of their worst ever campaigns in the 2019-20 season, going 17-49-5 during the COVID-19 shortened season.
The Red Wings experienced a slight improvement in the 2020-21 season, finishing the year with a 19-27-10 record for a 7th place finish above the Columbus Blue Jackets. While they weren’t the worst defensively, the Red Wings finished the campaign with the worst offensive record, averaging a measly 2.16 goals per game and were kept to a goal or less on 22 occasions.
The 2021-22 campaign was a disappointing one for the Detroit Red Wings. As they finished the year with a record of 32-40-10. They missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs and finished in 6th place in the Atlantic Division.
If you are a fan of the Detroit Red Wings, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Detroit Red Wings have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup in 2023?
