The palace is almost unthinkable as a home for the wings, as cavernous as it is...It is a pro-Detroit City Illitch owned team playing in Auburn Hills....but if it's temporary as a new arena is built or the joe is gutted and rebuilt, then so be it.

I remember being quite comfortable at the Vipers games back in the day at the Palace, but I was like 4 rows back so probably not a good judge for seats farther away.  I haven't been to the joe in like 10 years but it was showing it's age a bit back then.  I hope they do get a new arena and soon.  A franchise as prestigious as the Wings should not be playing in a substandard arena, it's not like they're playing in a classic rink like the montreal forum or maple leaf gardens, tear it down and build a new tradition where you can actually piss and **** at your leisure.

Yep, went to quite a few Vipers games, too. I remember it being just fine, but then again I was a kid. Still, I had been to the Joe, and several minor league rinks in the region....and Vipers games were a fun time. I think it works, if they choose to keep the ol' Joe.

 

In any case, I don't see Ilitch dragging this out too much longer.

I would have no problem playing at The Palace. Hate to say it but it would be a lot better then The Joe.

 

Slightly off topic, but reading on wiki, I was unaware that there was a WNBA brawl also! Who knows, if Wings play there we may see some bench clearing brawls since The Palace is known for that.

Why would the Wings play at the Palace? The Cadillac Centre© ( :P My name for it) isn't being built where the Joe is, so why wouldn't they just play at the Joe until the Cadillac Centre© is built?

Gotta go with the Wiki then!

 

Seriously though, it is weird that the Wings are listed in 2014...but wouldn't you think that it would say 2013? Usually the start of the season is the start of their tenancy. That is how the rest are listed....

Perhaps if there were more than 1 trough per 20,066 people, that might work.. However, the bathrooms are not numerous enough. 

 

So why can't they put panels up for the trough-a-phobiacs?

Would that be a little bit of short notice though? Wasn't it going to be a couple years before they started building a new one anyways, could be why it says 2014?

I would like to see it near Hockey town bar. That whole area is nice.

My only request is that it doesn't get a corp. sponsorship name. I'd be fines with Red Wings Arena sponsored by _________, but nothing like Jobings Arena or Honda Center.

I don't know...the whole sponsored by thing sounds hokey as well....

 

I agree with your point and also wish we could have something simple like Tiger Stadium was...but unfortunately it won't be.  It's all about the money.

 

My two ideas were The Cadillac Centre...but to honor the founder of Detroit, not GMC....then there was the Illitch Centre for Entertainment Arena, affectionately to be known as the I.C.E. Arena...

 That is cool too, except maybe it sounds a bit like a learning facility...Hey, they could have a Hockey School there too!  I think we are on to something!

Little Caesar's Coliseum would be WAY cooler.
