The franchise got its start in 1925 as the Detroit Cougars. Later, in 1930, they were renamed as the Falcons. James E. Norris took ownership of the Falcons after 1932, and he renamed the team the Red Wings and reinvented the logo to honor Detroit (the "Motor City"). The name and the logo stuck, and they have represented the Detroit NHL team ever since.
It wasn't long after they made the name change that the franchise began to ascend to the top of the league. In 1934 they made the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time, and they won their first Stanley Cup in 1936, defeating Toronto in four games.
Like any other team in the NHL, the Red Wings have experienced rough patches in their team history, in addition to changes in owners and the addition of new players. The team has experienced their golden era between 1994 and the present, experiencing great game play, fantastic hockey ticket sales, and Stanley Cup wins. There is a tradition among Red Wings fans and players called "The Legend of the Octopus," where during home playoff games at Joe Louis Arena, an octopus is thrown onto the ice for good luck. The fans in Detroit take this tradition very seriously, going to extreme lengths to sneak octopuses into Joe Louis Arena and throw them onto the ice.
