I'm glad to see the building go. Yes, there have been plenty of memories and great players, but that happens at most arenas. At some point, the building becomes outdated and renovation is not feasible. There's no real way they could widen the seats and add leg room without gutting the whole bowl. Can't expand the concourses either. The sad part, to me, is that the Joe is less than 10 years older than the Palace, but they're light-years apart as far as arena quality.
Everything about the new arena says it'll be done correctly, and that's really exciting.
another quick word on Glenny. His emergence along with Sheahan's would allow us to offer Helm in a deal for something we need. While Helm still has value. This team doesn't need all three, especially when Dats comes back to take up another center spot. Nothing personal against Helm...

Well I stayed up to watch the game and have a beer after, but I'm exhausted as I had to get up for work this morning. Chances are I'll miss some of the game as I'm going out for my birthday tonight... So I hope the wings can win this game and make it a winning weekend!
Outside of the second Bruins game, the Wings have played really good hockey. I am enjoying watching this group much more than the past couple seasons. They are quicker, more relentless and seem to have improved quite a bit defensively so far.
Still have some kinks to work out for sure, but this is all without Pav too.
