Detroit Red Wings:  5 Players from the Last 15 Years That I Miss Watching

While it feels like the NHL Network has been showing the same three or four playoff series this summer—seriously, I think I have the play-by-play for Nashville vs Anaheim memorized—they have been occasionally showing some interesting programming.

Notable to me has been the airing of the Cup clinching game for each year since like, 1985 (I really don't know where they started) every day at noon (I think) in a series called "Raising the Cup." 

While I haven't caught all of these games, a few weeks ago I did catch the Detroit Red Wings clincher from 2002.  And as the game progressed I realized how much I really miss watching some of those players play hockey.

It was an odd moment.  

I'm only 24 but have been a hockey fan since I was six.  So for me, the Wings of the mid-'90s and early 2000's were the guys that I really got to sink my teeth into.  So no, it isn't a little early for me to be reminiscing.  

Here are the five Red Wings players from the last 15 years that I miss watching play on a regular basis.
