Clipped Wings

To me, the Detroit Red Wings are like the New York Yankees of hockey. You either love them or, if you're like me, don't care too much for them.

Sure, I respect their collective talent. I just wish they would show their human element (our innate ability to make mistakes, or in this case, have the Wings lose) a little more often.

It's no surprise, either, that a respectable majority of Hound Central 4.0 readers share similar sentiments toward the Red Wings. Twelve out of 17 votes cast in the most recent poll predicted that the Red Wings, the defending Stanley Cup champion, will become the Dead Wings this season.

Question: Detroit Red Wings?

Dead Wings: 12 votes out of 17 cast (70.6 percent)
They'll repeat: 5 out of 17 (29.4 percent)
