Sports Team
    (1926- )
    Located in Detroit, Michigan
    Formerly known as the Detroit Cougars (1926-29) and Detroit Falcons (1929-32)
    Play in Joe Louis Arena
    Eleven Stanley Cup Championships (1936, 1937, 1943, 1950, 1952, 1954, 1955, 1997, 1998, 2002, 2008)
    Six retired numbers: Terry Sawchuk's #1, Ted Lindsay's #7, Gordie Howe's #9, Alex Delvecchio's #10, Sid Abel's #12 and Steve Yzerman's #19; Two unofficial retired numbers: Larry Aurie's #6 and Vladimir Konstantinov's #16
    They changed their name three times (Cougar, Falcons and Red Wings) in six years.
    They made the playoffs twice in their first seven years, losing in the first round each time.
    They failed to make the playoffs after winning the Stanley Cup in back-to-back seasons (1936, 1937).
    They made a point to draft Russian hockey players throughout the 1980's.
    They had a streak of over 40 years without winning a Stanley Cup (1955-1997).
    Their ownership (just like Colorado's) has been credited with making hockey more and more like the other sports by going out and buying a championship-caliber team rather than building one with young, inexperienced players.
    Although they were favorites to win the 2002-2003 seasons Stanley Cup, they wound up being swept by the Mighty Ducks in the first round.
    Many of their fans became spoiled with their success under head coach Scotty Bowman.
    They are one of the NHL's core six teams.
    Jack Adams spent 35 years as their General Manager.
    They play in a city that has been nicknamed 'Hockeytown.'
    They drafted Gordie Howe (1946).
    They are the first hockey team based out of the United States to win back-to-back Stanley Cups.
    They were able to provide Dominik 'The Dominator' Hasek with his first Stanley Cup championship.
    They make a commitment to win year-in, year-out and are always a threat to win the Stanley Cup.
    They set an NHL record by winning their 21st consecutive home game (February 14, 2012).
