Twenty-five years ago, after 41 seasons of futility, the Stanley Cup finally returned to the Motor City

Red Wings fans never will forget Steve Yzerman, with his gap-toothed smile, hoisting the Cup to cap the 1996–97 season. Or the Russian Five. Or the Grind Line. Or Fight Night at The Joe against Claude Lemieux, Patrick Roy and the hated Avalanche. Or the flying octopi. Or the million fans who lined Woodward for the parade. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of one of Michigan’s most-beloved teams, the Free Press has crafted a 208-page, full-color, hardcover collector’s book with fresh insights and dynamic storytelling about the 1996–97 Wings. Relive all the drama, the personalities and the glory as Hockeytown once again became Stanleytown.

Love it

I can't wait to see my sons face when he opens it for Christmas. We're all die hard Red Wings fans. I was impressed with the packaging. I was going to open it and peek at it, but with the book itself being sealed in plastic, I didn't.

This will be a gift. Not opened yet.

This is a Christmas present. I won’t have an opportunity to look at it. I’m not opening the box.
