Detroit Red Wings 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

From 1990-91 through 2015-16, the Detroit Red Wings made the Stanley Cup Playoffs every season. But 2016 was the last playoff campaign in the Motor City. As the All-Star Break approached, the Red Wings were in a back-and-forth race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Detroit should be in the race until the end and stands a good shot at finally getting back into postseason play. But if Detroit will end its playoff drought, it must tighten up defensively. Goaltending and defense remain liabilities that general manager and former Red Wing star Steve Yzerman must address before the trade deadline.

The Franchise has a total of 11 Stanley Cup championships and is also well known for boasting Gordie Howe as its marquee man in the 1950s and 60s.

The Red Wings opened for business in 1926 as the Cougars and rebranded as the Red Wings in 1932. Detroit is one of the NHL's famed “Original Six” franchises.
