(Ed. Note: As the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue, we're bound to lose some friends along the journey. We've asked for these losers, gone but not forgotten, to be eulogized by the people who knew the teams best: The bloggers who hated them the most. Here is Detroit Red Wings blogger J.J.

But no, my lone Mighty Ducks joke is that Corey Perry would be Lester Averman in a remake, except Lester would be his middle name and his first name would be Moe.
There, that's out of the way. Let's talk how bad the Ducks were.
