Few teams in the NHL boast a more robust history than the Detroit Red Wings. As an Original Six franchise, they have been around longer than your average sports team, and as such, have had dozens of legendary players pass through their halls and locker rooms.
It's always a joy to travel back in time a bit and read about players like Norm Ullman, Ted Lindsay and the rest of the players whose dusty stories are major parts of Red Wing lore.
There wasn't YouTube back then. No phones with stellar capture-to-Internet capabilities. There's something refreshing about having to rely on the eye-witness accounts of others. About having to imagine the scenes with your own brain and creativity.
It feels a bit like...real history.
And I have sifted through that history and found who I believe to be the 11 most prolific, entertaining and outstanding goal scorers in the bygone times of the Detroit Red Wings.
