Detroit Red Wings fans, in recent times, have been spoiled when it comes to retaining their stars. Their top two players over the past four decades, Steve Yzerman and Nick Lidstrom, never wore another NHL jersey except the one with the Winged Wheel.
Can you imagine seeing Steve Yzerman wearing a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey? How about Nicklas Lidstrom decked out in Montreal threads?
Detroit fans were fortunate that their stars wanted to play their entire careers with one organization, like Patrice Bergeron recently did with the Boston Bruins.
