In Topic: 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

20 July 2014 - 07:21 PM

All these same things were said when Ford Field/Comerica opened 14 years ago.

 

Those were simply arenas, and boring ones at that. This has an entire different level of potential primarily because it's not just an arena but an entire new inhabitable zone (that people can stay at versus going back to the suburbs to eat/whatever). It also blurs the lines between the arena itself and the surrounding concourse/street area. What if on days where there were no events the arena could actually be occupied? How great would that be. You could buy food/drinks/etc from the surrounding businesses and then sit down in the seating. Mad date potential.

Hossa was offered the same contract they gave Franzen, he turned it down so they went with plan b and signed Franzen.


That is nothing but an excuse. Franzen was signed before Hossa and after there wasn't enough cap space to sign Hossa to a contract he deserved. Of course he would turn down Franzen money, he is worth way more. There is no excuse for such a horrible decision by Holland.

I think he started to turn it around later in the season.  But he will not help the team reach another level and that is what we are supposed to be striving for.  We couldn't get it even close to done last year with the team we had, so why the hell are we going the same old played out strategy.  If they continue down this path of apathy I hope the fans show their distress by hitting the pockets of thisf****** disappointing team..

 

This is a broken record, but if Pav and Z have a healthy year and Weiss doesn't turn out to be a bust we have a pretty good set of forwards with the young kids and if we do make a trade we should have a better team this year.

 

Two seasons ago we came within a single goal of beating the Stanley Cup winners. Last year was s***ty, but look at our injuries we had. We're not as bad as people think.

Obviously I'm disappointing we didn't get better players...but am I the only one who doesn't think Quincey is THAT bad? If Holland can trade for a top 2 defenseman like he said was his backup plan was without giving too much away I'll be happy to have Quincey. He is a serviceable bottom 4 defenseman.
