I wish Donald Trump owned this team instead.

worst idea ever! If most are having issues about the LC logo on the roof, under Trump it would have a giant comb over, then our Griffins would have to go through some sort of reality show crap to make it to the big team.

Well if we fail to make the playoffs our first year at the Pizza Palace we can at least blame it on the lame name of our new arena and not on Andersson(Faceoff Connoisseur) starting in all playoff games over Mantha every year.

You joke, but if done right I would watch the s*** out of that show.

a properly done hockey reality show of how prospects try to make it to the big team could be interesting. but, the way they manage this sh*t you know he's gonna be pulling them from practice to make them go and get him a sugar cookie or something stupid.

Is anyone actually surprised about this? Seriously? I hate the corporate way sports has become, but it is what it is. And sadly, money rules the world. So what can we expect? Enjoy the last season at the Joe while you can. I'm looking forward to visiting the new arena just to see how it is in comparison with JLA, but while I'm sad that the new rink has a corporate name all over it, I'm not surprised in the slightest.

At least there's a Little Ceaser's Hockey thing. Maybe it's a tie-in for the kids.

I wasn't all that surprised. I mean, there are lots of businesses and/or products that wouldn't work at all. I mean, how silly would "Summer's Eve Arena" be when we don't play in the summer?

They were going to sell the rights to some company. To think otherwise is really naive.

So all this "it should have been named after a Red Wing" is pointless. Where in the NHL has that happened in today's day and age??

No they weren't. The Illitches planned to forego selling the naming rights. They didn't want the money, and could have named the arena anything they wanted. They literally passed up millions, and paid themselves instead, to name the arena as they did. It's not like it was this OR another corporate name. It was this OR literally any other thing the Illitches wanted to name it. They chose to ignore the public's vested interest. Trying to gloss it over is disingenuous.

I can think of worse ideas. Like Gary Bettman as NHL Commissioner.

Oh wait...

I'm a business and marketing genius.. I've been saying this all along.

p.s. LC and Illitchs, sugarcoat it all you want - you didn't FORGO anything.. You created a giant tax (marketing cost) write off for Lil' Caesars and agreed to pay yourselves over $120 MILLION DOLLARS!!! (6.25x20) Seems to be well ABOVE market rates for such things.

'Merica!!!!

Under the naming rights deal, Little Caesars will pay about $6.25 million per year for 20 years to another Ilitch entity that will operate the arena. By taking money from one family pocket and putting it in another, the Ilitches have forgone the chance to sell the rights to an outside bidder for a considerable sum.

Nope. The LED roof no longer happening has never been stated. As far as we all know, that is still happening and the roof can display whatever they want it to at any given time.

In this video they state otherwise unfortunately.

In regards to the Little Ceasars symbol on the roof:

"That will probably be permanent but the jewel itself, the part the wraps around the rink, will change colour."

I stand corrected, but still do not care. Like I've previously said. Nobody will care about what the building is called come game time. There are also much worst companies that could have bought the naming rights.

Jobing.Com Arena is still the clubhouse leader.

Booooo. You'd think they could use some of the naming money they're paying themselves to make the roof still happen

But yeah, no one will care nearly as much come puck drop. Just gotta get the trolling and disappointment out of our systems :P
