Hey everyone, I don't post to the site very often, but I do visit almost everyday, and enjoy reading the insight posted by the folks who visit the site. I came across this video tonight that recaps the last 22 years of playoff appearances made by our beloved Red Wings, and felt the need to share with everybody in this hockey community. Hopefully you take the 22 minutes and 22 seconds (ironic, huh?) that it takes to watch the video in its entirety, and enjoy it as much as I did! Go Wings!

My favorite Youtube channel by far. Actually, since he's a wings fan, I wonder if he's on these threads... Are you there, Awood40? :bye1:

Geez being 22 I obviously didn't get to see a lot of this stuff but wow. Federovs pass through his legs or Stevie y shot from center ice have to be my favorites.

Awood's channel is one of my favorites. The guy does amazing work editing together highlights of just about anything Red Wings related. I don't even know how many hours I've lost just sifting through all his videos. It's addicting

Stevie's smile is a favourite memory of mine, as well. :-)

I can't watch the whole thing right now, but a couple of things I love about this video:

 

1. I love how old footage from the JLA makes it sound like the place was so much louder than today. (was it really louder back then?)

2. I'd almost forgotten how hideous the Blues unis were in the early and mid-90s.

3. Watching Vladi Konstantinov score on that break against Roy in '96 is just awesome.

4. Remembering hitting my head on the low ceiling in my parents' basement when Yzerman won game 7 against the Blues in '96 from jumping off the couch.

5. Loving hearning Gary Thorne call playoff hockey games. That guy ruled as ESPN's main play-by-play man.

 

...and that's all just in the first 4 minutes!

Awesome, so many great memories....hard to pick a favourite.  Might have to watch it again ;)


"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

Excellent compilation.

 

Favorite goal - McCarty vs Philly, Game 4 1997.

 

Favorite moments - Yzerman raising the Cup in 97, and then handing the Cup off to Vladdy in 98.

really? I don't remember ever seeing him post, but the dude has skills with video editing.
I love his 20 minute game highlights because if I miss a game I can still see all the important highlights

God, I almost forgot about the blue streak following the puck.

Yzerman's goal against the Blues was one of my favorites, and the one where he roofed between the crossbar and Roy's shoulder and trying to figure out at the time how the hell he was able to do that. Also, that McCarty goal against Philly was one of my favorites. Also loved Roy showboating like an idiot-- you don't have the puck, stupid! Also, Larionov's backhander on Irbe. Also, watching Hasek celebrating for the first time. Also... ah, there's too many! I remember jumping up and down for all of them! Thank God for youtube and Awood40!

 

Coolest part about the video in my opinion was the transition over the years, players coming and going, old stars passing the torch to the future stars, the continued dominance...and Lidstrom was there the whole time.

How did Fedorov ever get the reputation of "not showing up in the playoffs"? 

 

Got goosebumps watching that.  What a trip down memory lane.
