I just thought of this tonight when a buddy of mine was showing me video of the Wings vs Avs game 7, 2002 Western Finals. It's been 10 years since this great season and I thought how cool it would be to share the moments of this speechless season. Enjoy!

Ten years? Holy crap. That season is forever etched in my memory, a touchstone I will be able to call upon when I'm 95 and senile. The Wings team of that year was scary good.

And to think there are only three guys left from that team...Nick, Pasha and Homer. How time flies.

I remember that game 7 with Colorado...we were in Sault Ste. Marie at a DAV convention. We were laughing our asses off watching the game. The next morning I ran into the Madam Commander on the National level of the Auxiliary, who happened to be from North Carolina. I told her my Wings were going to beat her Hurricanes. "NO WAY! We're going to win!"

"Wings in 5", I told her. "You watch." Damned if I wasn't right.

Nu-uh... As far as I'm concerned, it's still 2002, I'm still in high school and I have to cut the grass before my Dad gets home.

This was essentially the end of the rivalry, wasn't it? Also, I love how Stevie just tore the trophy out of the presenter's hand and skated off into the locker room with it. So funny.

Either way, I love awood's videos. He posts game highlights almost instantly and he always gets the best material. His channel is awesome.

As fun as chasing patty was, for me the highlight was game 6 in Colorado when we won 2-0. That was as good a performance as I have ever seen from a Redwings team. On the road, facing elimination, against your bitterest rivals, all the pressure of "greatest team ever assembled with 9* future HOFers", they came out and forechecked the living shiznit out of the Avs.

* Now 10, thanks to a certain P.Datsyuk :) Tells you how good that team was that he and Brett Hull were on the 4th line.

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Great videos. Two things really jump out at me.

1 - Look at all that room behind the nets

2 - Bravo to the referee in game 6 who didnt blow the whistle when Roy held his arm up like he had it. I cringe watching it today thinking that would be one of those playes that would draw a quick whistle.

It's shocking that it's been 10 years. I never get tired of watching that stuff (as Im sure most of you don't either). That line up is still absolutely insane. Even the defense was stacked.

The only year I didn't HOPE they would win the Stanley Cup, because I KNEW they would. Good times, great team. It was like watching the Harlem Globetrotters of hockey.

My favorite Cup run.

I was going to start some threads about it later in the season when we're closer to the playoffs.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

That team was just epic. It's impossible to explain to anyone who didn't get to witness it as it was happening.

Also, where does this rank on the biggest sports fails of all time? It's gotta be up there. It couldn't have happened to a better guy.



Sometimes bad things happen to good people but every now and again the universe allows for the opposite just to give you a little hope.
