Detroit filed for bankruptcy Thursday afternoon, becoming the nation's largest public sector bankruptcy. The move could slash pension benefits to city workers and retirees, and leave bond holders with only pennies on the dollar.

This one is a tough call to make, but I'm inclined to say that this is a topic that shouldn't be discussed here on LGW.  Granted, the city's bankruptcy plans may well have a direct effect on the Red Wings, this story (and thread) are more a political issue than a sports/hockey issue, and as we know LGW is a "No Political Discussion" zone.

 

If Detroit's bankruptcy filing/proceedings has an impact on the Wings plans for a new arena, it can (and already is) be discussed in the New Arena thread.
