Great Wings Players, But No Cup While In Detroit

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Here is a look at the 20 most notable Red Wings who never won a Cup in Detroit.

This includes only players who played multiple seasons with the Red Wings, so the likes of Daniel Alfredsson, Mike Modano, Darryl Sittler and Borje Salming weren’t listed. Their ranking is weighted heavily toward their accomplishments in Detroit.

1. Norm Ullman

He scored 20 or more goals 16 times during his Hall-of-Fame career. He joined the Red Wings one year after they won the Cup in 1955 and was traded to Toronto one year after the Maple Leafs won their most recent Cup in 1967.

2. Marcel Dionne

After four strong seasons in Detroit, he was traded to Los Angeles, where he signed the richest deal in the NHL at the time ($300,000 a season) and remained one of the game’s best offensive players for many years. He ranks fifth all-time in goals (731) and sixth in points (1,771). His teams won only three playoff series and never advanced past the second round.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
