Fill In The Blank: Detroit Red Wings

It’s the dog days of summer when the NHL Draft is long since past, the bulk of Free Agency has been taken care of and with most NHL news having slowed to a slow trickle, we now sit watching days go by waiting for the start of training camps.

We already know how most of you feel about your Winnipeg Jets, so we wanted to ask you all about the other 30 teams in the NHL. This summer we’re going to ask for your feedback on our Twitter and Facebook on each NHL club.  Your replies can be complementary, they can be all-in-good-fun (or not) roasts, your reply can be a single word or it can be a statement.

The best replies will be gathered up and collected here for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

Today… The Detroit Red Wings are: _________

Getting the obvious out of the way…

Remember when the Red Wings were in the Western Conference? Remember when Toronto was in the west with them as well? Glad the NHL finally figured out that whole geography thing.

They used to be good…

If there was one central theme that came up again and again with the Red Wings, it’s that they have been really good, for a really long time… But maybe not so much any more.

Sooooo.. What you guys are trying to say is that they aren’t going to be any good any more? Maybe for the next while at least anyway…

Keep your hands off of Trouba

Last word on the Red Wings isn’t so much a fill in the blank as it is a common thought with all Jets fans…
