Needs serious cleanup[edit]

The term "The Grind Line" was not invented by Bowman, or even Detroit. The term dates back to the seventies. There have been several so-named "grind lines" on multiple teams since. The term needs to be more generically defined, rather than pinned directly to Bowman/Red Wings. Caulfield14 20:14, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

I agree these Red Wing fans think they invented hockey. I don't think the "Grind Line" was all that great, well enough to have a page on Wikipedia, yes it was famous in Detroit but not big enough to have a page here.

If you have other examples of lines that were called "The Grind Line" please expand the page to include them. However, at the present time, that's not been done, and so the page stands as it is. As for notability, this particular group was well-known in Detroit during the time they played, and around the NHL as well. Please don't be insulting on the talk page as well, nobody's done anything to warrant that. Also, please sign your comments. --Battlemonk 20:56, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
