    I am not looking forward to this happening to the capitals. they aren't a dynasty but i've been watching them as cup contenders for a decade now and once the Ovi/backstrom era is over it's gonna suck

      They played in like 6 Stanley cups in a 10 year span, and won 4 of them. Id say that thats a pretty good dynasty. They were also in like 9 conference finals in a 13 year span.

          This was the New York Yankees of the NHL a great dynasty. But our future is bright

            Oh COME ON!... 3 bad years after 25 great years and then Yzerman as your GM to turn things around....I'll take it!

              Did I miss the part about switching conferences? The East and West have very different styles of play with Western Conference teams being a more open, free skating, style of play and the East being more defense and hitting oriented. I'm sure that being built for success in the West, and suddenly having to play in the East, didn't help them.

                        Still hurts me to think we could've had Yzerman for all these years.

                                    I got over 25 years of awesome entertainment from Watching the Red Wings. All dynasties come of an end sooner or later. I was under no illusion it would last for ever. I started watching in 1991 and around 1995 I realized I was seeing something special. I started watching every game I could. During the 1995 playoffs My girlfriend dumped me because I'd rather stay home to watch the game. 1997 1998 2002 2008 I watched almost every game those seasons. I saw it all from Roy getting blown out in Montreal to the bloodbath at the Joe. Many of the Wings best players I watched their entire careers. The best thing I saw was the Russian 5.

                                              Thanks to the idiot Holland. So glad our captain is back where he belongs. Now we can dig our way out of the hole Holland dug for us. So happy that the arrogant asshat Holland is no longer part of our organization. Nice to have hope now. Go Wings!!

                                                  This was honestly pretty sad to watch as a Wings fan, watching all our people vanish like that

                                                    I always laugh everytime I think about Hossa during the back to back finals between Pittsburgh and Detroit. He lucked out ending up on the Blackhawks though.

                                                        So glad that Holland is gone and that Yzerman is back. Red Wings' haters better enjoy it, while they can. The Wings WILL be back on top.

                                                                  • Hank3666able

I remember in 09 something about a lidstrom lacerated onion from a spear from one of the blackhawks and Brad Stewart giving away the puck in front of his own net for a goal in game six
                                                                        Cindy Crosby did nothing in the series because zeterberg shut him down yet he said zeterberg sucked and was only good because of lidstrom. Those are my memories of 09

He's got veterans on defense. But also a few young defensemen. It will be interesting to see who stays and who doesn't. Holland liked to fill in spots with forwards being signed from free agents around the league. Will Yzerman let the young forwards they've drafted a chance to play for the Red Wings? Will the new GM be able to make any changes in draft choices, through trades? It will be an interesting time between now and the start of the 2019/2020 season.
