I was thinking of prominent players who had some brief stints with franchises you forget they ever played for. Many of these came at the end of that player's career, but some others are early in a career or in the middle.

Also, I know Glenn Hall didn't have a bad stint in Detroit, but I alway forget that he played for the Wings at one time.


Mark Messier - Canucks
Igor Larionov - Panthers/Devils
Ron Francis - Leafs
Brett Hull - Coyotes
Eric Lindros - Stars/Leafs
Luc Robitaille - Penguins
Doug Harvey - Red Wings
Sergei Fedorov - Blue Jackets
Markus Naslund - Penguins
Brian Leetch - Bruins/Leafs
Glenn Hall - Red Wings




So what are some others you can think of?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Gretzky with the Blues.

Ulf Samuelsson was a Red Wing.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Peter Forsberg - Nashville Predators (as brief as they come).

Hatcher on the Wings is the one for me. I thought he would be a great addition for the Wings but with with the injury and all it was pretty much a non-event.

Ray Whitney's stint in Detroit
Marian Hossa's stint in Pittsburgh
Zdeno Chara's time with the Islanders
Goride Howe's stint with the Hartford Whalers
Pavel Bure's time with the Rangers

Igor Larionov playing for the Sharks before he was a Red Wing.

Todd Bertuzzi's first team was the Islanders.

Kariya and Selanne in Colorado was supposed to guarantee them the cup that year, and I'm pretty sure both players had career lows.

John Vanbiesbrouck played for the Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders & New Jersey Devils but I can only picture him on the Panthers and Rangers (also, didn't know the guy grew up in Detroit).

Joey Kocur played about 7 games for the Vancouver Canucks before he came to the Wings.

Claude Lemieux was on the China Sharks :P

Some really good ones there guys.

I totally forgot Belfour with the Sharks.

Also, I didn't include Howe's stint in Hartford, because it wasn't all that bad. It's sort of memorable, because of that All Star game in 1980 and because he was in his 50's when he was playing. He played better than any other 51 year old could in the NHL.

Thrashers - When they started a team in Atlanta

:P
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Holy hell, I didn't even know at all that Belfour played 13 games with San Jose in 1996-97 - had to look it up on TSN to even see when it happened.

Looking at his stats, I guess he wasn't much help for them.
