Watching The Wings Power Play

from the Blue Seats at the NY Post,

I bring this up because of the heavily European Red Wings roster. North American players are out numbered slightly in Detroit, but it hasn’t hampered the club’s regular season success. Granted, they haven’t won a cup since 2002 when their core was comprised of greats like Steve Yzerman, Brendan Shanahan, Brett Hull, Pat Verbeek and Luc Robataille…

What this all has to do with the Rangers is this: we complain about the Jagr-ization of the power play, decrying it as European hockey when it’s not exactly that simple.

more... and no Cup for the ‘Little Ball of Hate” with the Wings. He only played two seasons with the Wings, 1999 & 2000, both non-Cup years.
