In listing the ways Chicago has blatantly ripped off the Wings, you all forgot to mention their style of play. They draft Kane and Toews (Datsyuk and Zetterberg, anyone?), then add Hossa. They change to a puck possession style of play and mimick virtually everything the Wings did for years.
They really are like a jealous little brother, only no one ever calls them out on it except for Wings fans. Bums.
For the last 15yrs or so, probably longer, the Wings have been the cream of the NHL. What stuns me is why someone hasn't tried to play the way we do sooner.
I find Hawkeytown a pretty clever play on words. Of course their blowing up due to the cap has made my summer.
