"I forgot he was a Red Wing!"?

Every now and then when poring over recent rosters, even for the Cup-winning teams, I look at the team and think "Oh yeah, that guy played for the Red Wings." It's either legitimate NHL regulars or guys the Wings have given a second chance.

I also always think it's strange to think of Ulf Samuelsson, Wendel Clark, and Derian Hatcher in Wings jerseys, even though I remember it pretty clearly.

I could go on... Any others come to mind for your team?


"Any others come to mind for YOUR team" guys don't have to only name former Wings player although I am getting good answers.

    Thomas Sandstrom was apart of 97 cup winner I think


    Jamie Macoun ended is career there

    Bill Ranford played a few games there in 99

    Bob Essensa in early 90's played part of a season there

    Allan Bester( long time leaf) played a few games there

    They seem to have had a habit of picking up insurance policy goalies at the deadline

    And finally since is jersey was retired by the rangers last night, Adam Graves who started out in Det.

    Edit: I mis read the question and went with Wings

    Okay Habs fan here so guys that made brief Habs appearances

    Rob Ramage- 93 cup winner

    Bryan Fogarty highly touted prospect had a drinking problem

    Yeah, Clark was brought to Detroit at 99 trade deadline, Hatcher played for Detroit in the 2003-04 season, Sanstrom won the cup in '97 with the club and Samuelsson played for the team in the 90's so the Wings have got a lot of history. Hopefully we can win in 2009!!!

    Wendel Clark always comes to mind, I have a poster of him on the Wings and I still can't believe it. Even Dallas Drake. Especially Derian Hatcher, I always feel sorry for the guy, always wanted to be a wing, 4 games in, season ending knee injury and then its the lockout year.

  • Troy Crowder, Bob Erry, Mike Vernon, Ray Sheppard, Larry Murphy, Darryl Sittler, Dave "Tiger" Williams, Ray Whitney, Mike Sillinger, Marcel Dionne, Dale McCourt, Rogey Vachon, Paul Coffey, Borje Salming, Brad Park off the top of my head, add Danny Gare.

    Uwe Krupp was an injured Red Wing for years. That was a waste.

    How about Mike Knuble? Drafted and played two years with the Wings (the years the Wings had back to back Cup wins).

    Not a popular guy....but I always picture Ed Giacomin in a Rangers jersey. Tiger Williams......I forgot he played for the Wings.

    Seeing Wendel Clark in a Bolts that is funny.

    Adam Oates and Dale Hawerchuk I guess.

    Gretzky in a Blues uniform! Orr a Blackhawk. Sawchuk a Hab.

    Oops sorry, was I supposed to think of Detroit guys? Forgot about Luc Robitaille until he mentioned it during the all-star festivities. Even Hull even though it wasn't that long ago.

    How about Bob Probert as a Hawk?

    Just kind of doesn't seem right with them being in those jerseys (like you said, even though we remember it)
