From the above link:

Unable to get a team in Chicago, Norris bought Olympia Stadium and the Falcons franchise in 1933. He immediately changed the team name to the Red Wings and began building a champion.

With Jack Adams as coach, Norris purchased Scotty Bowman and Syd Howe from the St. Louis Eagles.

The Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in 1936 and were the first American franchise to repeat as champions in 1937.

Um... am I reading this wrong, or was Scotty Bowman purchased when he was 3 years old?

Thanks, rrasco.

I saw that and thought of... well, you know who I thought of. :blush:

I had no idea. I think it's kind of odd that we have two 'Scotty Bowmans' in Wings' history. Wonder if there is any relation?
