Here’s what it takes to win a Stanley Cup.


You have to be a dominant force at every position.

The key to winning is having the best players in the league on your roster.

And that means having your best players at every line position, in every position, and not being afraid to take chances on any player in the lineup.

For the Detroit Red Wings, that includes the center, who was a Vezina candidate but was a healthy scratch in the playoffs.

It’s not that they’re afraid to get the puck to him, but they know they can get it to him when they need it.

So that’s a key to the success of this team.

They have to have a dominant power play unit, they have to put the puck in the net.

And they have a shutdown pairing that’s capable of shutting down all the big line players.

I don’t know if you remember, but the Detroit team had an offensive power play for the entire 2016-17 season, which was very impressive.

I’m sure they’ve got a good chance of doing it again, especially in the final year of their contract.


You’ve got to have the puck.

When you have a team that’s scoring 30 goals a game and the other team has no offense, you need to be able to generate some offense and be able get the offensive zone started and then score in the neutral zone.

The Red Wings have to make sure they have the talent and the skill to do that.

They’re not going to have enough offensive firepower to do it.

They’ve got players who can do a lot, but not all of them.

They need to play a little bit more physical, too.


You’re going to need your top six forwards.

There are two good teams in the Eastern Conference.

Detroit and Boston have good goaltending and a good offense.

I think it’s going to be difficult for them to win with all the top six players.

And the Bruins have the most talented roster in the East.


You want to be at your best when you’re in the playoff race.

That means being able to put your best foot forward.

I would be surprised if they weren’t in the thick of the playoff hunt.

They’ll have to fight for the Eastern Division title.


You need to get a couple of wins in order to advance.

I know it’s a long season, but you want to win as many as you can, and that’s one of the biggest things.


You can’t just rely on one guy.

You also need to have some depth, especially at center.

You don’t want to have too many guys that aren’t 100 percent, because that gives the other guys room to attack.

If you’re a young team that wants to have continuity, then you need at least one or two guys that are good enough to be in the mix for a roster spot.

That’s something that’s been tough for teams like Detroit.

They really have to figure out how to win on a regular basis.

I wouldn’t expect them to make it, but it’s something to watch.
