List Rules Vote up the best hockey players based on their careers with the Detroit Red Wings.

The Detroit Red Wings were founded almost 90 years ago, way back in 1926, and were one of the original six founding teams of the NHL. They're clearly the dominant United States team with a whopping eleven Stanley Cup victories. That's the most for all U.S. teams, and third overall behind those darned Canadians in Montreal and Toronto. Their playoff streak currently stands at twenty-two, having made it each year from 1991-2013.
