Detroit has statistically been the best playoff team since the lockout in 2005. They have made the playoffs every single season since and have only been knocked out in the first round once since the lockout. They have also won a Stanley Cup in 2008 and went back the next season in 2009, but fell one win short of the Stanley Cup.
The Red Wings have more experience and talent man for man in the NHL than any other team in the league. They definitely have the what it takes every season to win the Stanley Cup, but as we all know it is the hardest trophy in sports to win.
I am not going to say Detroit will win the Stanley Cup because the season hasn't even played a preseason game. So we don't know if the chemistry will be clicking to championship form yet. I can't predict either because I predicted the Kings would hoist the Cup this season, so it would sound a little dumb to predict two teams winning the Stanley Cup.
Just look for Detroit to go deep once again in the playoffs and maybe even make another great Stanley Cup run for Hockeytown.
