The Detroit Red Wings, being an Original Six franchise, have had some Hall of Fame players play at every position.
This slideshow will examine the best wingers in Red Wings history. As players can sometimes shift from one wing to the other over the course of their careers, it makes it impractical to differentiate between the two wings.
Some of these players have only ever played for Detroit, while some have spent only a few seasons with the Red Wings.
Here are the best five wingers in Detroit Red Wings history.
Note: the qualifications for meeting this list are that the winger played for Detroit for at least two different seasons (no one-hit wonders, e.g. Marian Hossa) and was otherwise one of the best players in the NHL at the time.
