I don't mind him saying stuff like Wings are Beatable even saying things bad about Wings and Wings players isnt so bad. But why do people (especially people in the public eye) continue to bash a city and region that is struggling and suffering right now? The people of Detroit and it's surrounding area did nothing to Alex Burrows or the Vancouver Canucks. If he wants to say Nick Lidstrom wears dirty underwear, that's fine, but God Damn it leave Southeast Michigan ALONE! Detroit helped build America, Michigan helped build America, in a lot of ways, Michigan is still a huge contributor to the succcess of not only America, but all of North America. And that is because of its hard working people. Despite the fact that our Government and CEO's continue to screw us over, we only get stronger. Alex Burrows needs to apologize to the people of Detroit. He also needs to realize that if not for cities like Detroit, there wouldn't be cities like Vancouver. These kind of people disgust me. Hey Alex, there must be something good about our community, most players that come here and live here, never want to leave. Oh BTW, how many players in the NHL have either grown up here or gone to school here or just live here in the off-season. There is something special about Michigan, Southeast Michigan, Detroit and Hockeytown. It's unfortunate people cannot look past the cover and open the book to page 1 and see what kind of people we are. Not just as Hockey fans, but as people & communities. We live, we breathe and yes Alex, we bleed just like people in Vancouver, Los Angeles, Tallahassee & Edmonton.
