    This really closes the book on the Wings that re ignited the RedWings we all loved and cheered for as the deadwings were put to bed.... Stevie, Nick, the Russian 5... so many great memories in the 90's...

    If you ever want to know how to define a team captain, you start with:

    Stevie Y. and
    Nick Lidstrom

    the alpha and omega!

    Indeed.
    Although Nick was a Wing for 20 years, it seems like 50 years when I look back to where I was at in life when I started watching him. Nick's career pretty much bridged my punk college life to my current life as a father, husband and professional.

    ...#5 retiring makes me feel really old all of the sudden.

    Red Wings have made the playoffs 25 consecutive seasons. That streak is in serious jeopardy.

    I do not believe this.....instead.....we will not make the playoffs because I forgot to make a 2016-2017 Wings thread.

    No I think the front office got abit lazy keeping fresh talent coming in as the last of our championship core retired and/or moved on.... we have been flirting with missing for a few years purely on pedigree and not talent IMO, the bottom now has finally fallen out.

    Lets just hope we don't have to suffer thru another dead wings era before we go on the upswing again.
