Detroit Red Wings 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

From 1991 through 2016, the Detroit Red Wings never missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs. However, they have not returned since that 2016 campaign. Favorite son and Red Wings Hall of Famer Steve Yzerman returned home to lead Detroit as its general manager in April 2019. Yzerman has been given the benefit of the doubt by the Red Wings faithful. But there is a sense that Detroit fans and gamblers are out of patience. The 2023-23 season feels like playoffs or busts in the Motor City.

The 2022-23 Detroit Red Wings were 35-37-10 straight up and 38-41 over/under the total. Also, Detroit was 7th in the Atlantic Division playoff standings. Detroit was 55 points behind the Boston Bruins in the Atlantic Division race. Detroit had NHL rankings of 24th for goals scored and 17th for power play efficiency. In comparison on defense, the Red Wings had NHL rankings of 22nd for goals against and 18th for penalty killing.

First among Detroit scorers was Dylan Larkin with 32 goals, 47 assists, 79 points, and a -7. Goaltender Ville Husso had a ..896 save percentage and 3.11 goals against average. His record was 26-22-7 with four shutouts.

Head coach Derek Lalonde didn't burst onto the scene in Detroit last season with the same vigor (or success) that, say, Jim Montgomery did in Boston. Lalonde is a first-time NHL head coach who went through growing pains along with a Red Wings team that struggled to find an identity and stick with it. Many of the problems Detroit exhibited under former coach Jeff Blashill returned to bite Lalonde's group down the 2022-23 season stretch. But Lalonde was GM Steve Yzerman's pick to take over, and he'll have a chance to prove why with an improved Detroit team this season.

Detroit added to every position in free agency. And its marquee man was Alex DeBrincat. Detroit moved nine days into July and signed DeBrincat to a four-year, $31.5 million deal that truly cements how much better and deeper Detroit is now (on paper) than it was in April. That's not all DeBrincat, either. Compher brings a Stanley Cup-winning background and some sandpaper to a possible top-six-forward role. Gostisbehere and Holl give Lalonde more potential looks and the ability to juggle on the blue line. And Reimer is a veteran backup who can support Ville Husso.

That's all good. Where Detroit has so often fallen short in recent years is its lack of top-end scorers and a full-team buy-in on the defensive side of the puck. Yzerman reeled in a big catch with DeBrincat, who is poised to bounce back into the type of awe-inspiring player he was with Chicago. Now Yzerman has to hope that the group's defensive commitment will materialize too.

Detroit Red Wings History

The Detroit Red Wings' latest Glory era was from 1984 through 2016, when they missed the playoffs only twice and won four Stanley Cup championships. Steve Yzerman was the superstar captain most of those years. Legendary Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman won three Stanley Cup titles, with Mike Babcock winning one. 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.

As an iconic and legacy franchise, the Red Wings have a host of Pro Hockey Hall of Fame players and legends. They also have eight retired numbers. Players with their numbers retired include goaltender Terry Sawchuk #1, defenseman Red Kelly #4, Nicklas Lidstrom #5, left wing Ted Lindsay #7, right wing Gordie Howe #9, center Alex Delvecchio #10, center Sid Abel #12, and center Steve Yzerman #19.

Yzerman now serves as general manager of the Red Wings after earning his executive bona fides with the Tampa Bay Lighting. Yzerman greatly impacted building the Tampa Bay powerhouse that won the 2020 and 2021 Stanley Cup championships.
