Yesterday's win saw the Red Wings lock up their 9th straight 100 point season. They also wrote their name in the playoff bracket for the 17th straight season.
The 17th straight playoff appearance is very impressive. But I think the 9 straight 100 point season is a better measuring stick. To play at the level that they have for 9 consecutive years shows not only great contributions by players through that span but also the front office.
Stars came and left, played and retired, gave their all and were rewarded. Yet the organization remains the icon of modern hockey (sorry Montreal). All the credit should go to those involved in the front office and the fans that filled the Joe.
