"I forgot he was a Red Wing!"

another one I just remembered, Steve "Stumpy" Thomas

His son Christian was part of the London / Oshawa OHL trade involving John Taveres and was a player the Generals insisted had to be included in the deal.

Danil Markov, I know he's been mentioned already, but I have to repeat because I really wish he was a still a Wing.

The names that I was thinking about as i waas reading along the list of rareities slowly got covered so i cheated and looked up our 1st round draft choices and listed a few that poped

1969: Jim Rutherford (10th overall) ( Carlolinas GM)

1971: Marcel Dionne (2nd overall)

1979: Mike Foligno (3rd overall)

1988: Kory Kocur (17th overall) not to b confused with Joey Kocur

1996: Jesse Wallin (26th overall)

and well he never played but he was my fav coach: Jacques Demers ( throw some change on the ice Jaques) lol anyone remember this?

Don't think anyone has mentioned Stefan Liv

Because nobody forgot Liv.

And as far as Johnson, yes it's "the guy from the Preds"; most of us remembered he had been a Wing when he was a Pred, let alone when he returned to the Wings.

Edit: Also Brian Glynn although he never played a game for us.

IIRC, we got him in the trade better known for Brendan Shanahan. Primeau and Coffey, of course, went to the Whalers.

Edit: I looked up this trade, and I guess the Whalers also got a draft pick, which ended up being Nikos Tselios, Cheli's cousin.

As long as we're going with some old guys, I'll drop Fred Glover, just because he's a minor league legend, most notably with my hometown Cleveland Barons--the all-time AHL scoring leader at the time he retired. 61 regular season and 8 playoff games with the Wings from 1948-1952, although I read somewhere once that he was pretty resentful towards Jack Adams for not getting what he saw as a fair shot.

...all good lists!

...without looking up rosters, here are some I DO remember, see if you do too!

...Alain Chevrier

Chevrier was a backup to Tim Cheveldae for a bit. I remember them being called Team Chevy.

Does anyone know of any places that will sell old Red Wings jerseys? I would seriously love to get a Clark jersey. I know there are a lot of knock off places where you can put your own lettering on a jersey but it would be cool to get the real deal.

Ulf was one of my favorite players when he was on Pittsburgh. I thought it was awsome when we picked him up. I rushed out and had a jersey made.

Total bust. He only played 13 games here.

I was so pissed.

Gotta give props to these guys:

Duchesne, Olausson, Slegr.

For soem reason, I always liked these guys and always forget about them. Not that they were great players necessarily, but for some reason, I got a little attached to them.

EDIT: Holy cow! Jason Wooley, there's someone I've forgotten totally about.

Does anyone remember the night Duchesne got into a fight with Adam Deadmarsh in front of the Wings bench? One punch from Deadmarsh and Duchesne lost about half of his teeth lol. Props, though, to Steve.
