NHL's Salute to the Red Wings Dynasty

Recently, the NHL Network presented a show titled “Salute to the Red Wings Dynasty”. It was a wonderfully entertaining and informative program in which the NHL honored these elite athletes. Even if you are not a Red Wings fan (and I do know there are some of you..:( ), it was something to experience.

The show consisted of a panel of Detroit Red Wings alumni on stage being interviewed. The panel consisted of players from the 1950-55 seasons. This era is known as the Dynasty since the Red Wings won (or earned) the Stanley Cup four out of the six years. That is quite an accomplishment! 🙂

Who was on this distinguished alumni panel? To list just a few of their hockey accomplishments – The list of these accomplished athletes are as follows:

Red Kelly.

  • He is the first ever Norris Trophy winner recipient.
  • He was inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF) in 1969.

Marcel Pronovost.

  • He is a four-time All Star.
  • Winner of four Stanley Cups.
  • Inducted into HHOF in 1978.

Ted Lindsay.

  • The winner of four Stanley Cups.
  • He was the Detroit Red Wings captain from 1952 to 1956.
  • Awarded the Art Ross Trophy in 1950.
  • Inducted into the HHOF in 1966.
  • Member of Detroit’s well-known Production Line (goal scoring line)

In the hockey world, he is well known for the photo of him treating his hockey

stick like a gun during the 1952 game against another Original Six team – the

Toronto Maple Leafs.

Marty Pavelich.

  • The winner of four Stanley Cups.
  • Played with the Wings for 10 seasons.

Alex Delvecchio. Also known as “Fats” due to his round face.

  • Inducted into HHOF in 1977.
  • Played 24 seasons with the Red Wings.
  • Recipient of three Lady Byng trophies.
  • Played 1,549 regular season games – second only to Gordie Howe.
  • Winner of three Stanley Cups

Gordie Howe. Known as “Mr. Hockey” by fans; “Mr. Elbows” by opponents

  • 6 time Hart Trophy winner.
  • 6 scoring titles
  • Member of Production Line (Detroit’s infamous goal scoring line)
  • Inducted into the HHOF in 1972.
  • Played 26 seasons with the Red Wings.
  • Played 1,767 regular season NHL games
  • Played in 21 All Star Games
  • 801 regular season goals
  • Only player to ever play professionally for six decades
  • Etc….Etc….Etc….

When asked how the sport of hockey has changed since the era they played in, some interesting and entertaining responses were heard. For instance, Red Kelly said that back when he played there was no circling around like in today’s hockey. Players simply “started and stopped”. (He made it sound easy.)

Ted Lindsay mentioned how “back then” all the shots any player took was a wrist shot. “It was before slapshots came into play,” he explained. I found that particularly interesting. 🙂 He also went on to mention how he almost didn’t make the team. The Red Wings management had a list with 25 names of it, and he was not on the original list. This was back before the NHL draft was put into place.

In addition to hearing and watching the panel of reknown athletes, viewers could see the crowd – another gathering of hockey knowns. For instance, Scotty Bowman was there. I don’t care where he is, I always get a thrill out of seeing and hearing him. He’s a wealth of information. Marion Ilitch (her and her husband – Michael – are the owners of the Detroit Red Wings) was also there, sitting next to Scotty Bowman. The camera also showed Gary Bettman and others involved in the world of hockey.

What a great, great program to watch! It was well done, and a wonderful way to spend two hours. Thank you NHL Network!

Interesting fact: Gordie Howe was first considered “too scrawny” to play in the NHL. According to his biography – found on the Detroit Red Wings alumni website – the New York Rangers invited him to pre-season workouts. However, they ended up sending him home due to scrawniness and his being so homesick.

    Hi, I know it’s been a while since you posted this, but I would love to have a copy of this program. Did you happen to DVR it? I’ve looked everywhere online (and even bugged the NHL Network several times) and it doesn’t seem to exist.
