As the 2011-2012 NHL Season is coming to a close and teams are locking in playoff positions, as of now I think that the Detroit Red Wings are primed for a Stanley Cup run. The following are why I think so:

Their historic 25 game winning streak at home at the Joe Louis Arena;
The return of starting players that were out due to injury the previous month, thus explaining their recent slump (namely Nicklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk);
The Red Wings are loaded with a great mix of seasoned veterans and young talent;
If Detroit can win their division and get a 2 or 3 seed in the conference, the advantage is theirs due to the considerable home ice advantage that they established this season.

Most attacks will speak of the Wings' most recent slump and their road weaknesses, I have answers to all of these and will gladly debate another fan from either the Western or Eastern Conference.


20 reasons why the Red Wings suck
(Yeah , Like We could limit it to just Ten...)

20. Catholic School Girls Slap Harder
19. Draper's bubble-butt caused by his wearing Depends--as he puts it, "just in case one goes in".
18. Wings players being rejected in their attempt to join the Stars on Ice tour.
17. All Wings losses are claimed as "unfair" and should be counted as "do-overs".
16. Federov using wife's Oil of Olay.
15. During the pre-game, Wings players listen to N'SYNC to get pumped up.
14. The fact that Yzerman's Mom still writes his name on the inside of his underwear.
13. That constant high-pitched squeal every time they touch the puck.
12. Wings spent too much money on acquisitions, forgetting to set aside the "Ref" money that helped them win their past two cups!
11. Certain players demanding to be roommates on the road and requesting a single bed.
10. The Department Store Santa Claus uniform is ridiculous !
9. The fact that the team won't skate until they've coordinated their underwear to their nail polish to their uniforms.
8. Octopus ?- That's only fitting - A vile, smelly, slimy, bottom feeding sea animal - What better mascot for the Red Wings.
7. Scotty Bowman has more whine than California's vineyards!
6. The fact that the play of the Red Wings directly influences sales of One-A-Day Vitamins and Metamucil.
5. The plate in Bowmans Head causes confusion and mayhem at airport security screening.
4. The City of Detroit - although, your fireworks last year sure kicked butt!
3. Hasek the Dominator ??? - More like Hasek the Spastic!!!
2. The name "HOCKEYTOWN" ??? How arrogant!
1. Red Wings Fans - need I say more....
Debate Round No. 1


None of those arguments are relevant. Federov is no longer on the team, nor is Yzerman or Hasek. Bowman is long gone as coach, the coach is now Mike Babcock.

Detroit is Hockeytown and should be. What professional hockey team has been as successful as the Wings the past 15 years? Not a single one... 4 Stanley Cups, 20 straight playoff berths... the numbers speak for themselves....

Mike Babcock was the coach of Team Canada when they won the 2010 Vancouver Gold Medal and guess who the GM for Canada was? Steve Yzerman.

Detroit is Hockeytown. Just watch the 2008 highlight reel when they put little old Cindy Criesby in his place.
