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

I love the idea of separated concessions and restaurants. It will be awesome to walk out of the arena proper between periods, into essentially a neighborhood of shops under a starry sky (protected by a glass roof). I'm under the impression that these shops will be accessible from Woodward and neighboring streets as well, which implies that at least some of them may be open for regular hours, instead of limited to during arena events.

Yeah I read somewhere in the description that everything would be open even when nothing is going on in the arena.

Looks good. I was a fan of the mockup somone did of a barn-style arena but this is modern and seems to have kind of an innovative design. That roof is gonna look amazing too.

People forget so quickly that we are TERRIBLE against bad teams. Remember all the barn burners vs Florida and the Isles last year? Easiest doesn't mean squat, if we still healthy we'll have a shot at the playoffs. But since we're bringing back the exact same roster as last year, should we expect the injuries to just go away?

Out toughest injuries were to Z, Pav and Weiss. All 3 are highly unlikely to miss as much time this season. It would be extreme bad luck. I also think Helm finally has a good chance to stay healthy now that he gets a full summer and camp to work out 100%., Injuries won't stop but we have to get some kind of 'break' from it eventually... we can't keep being one of the top 3 teams in mangames lost year after year, I refuse to believe we can't get a "healthy" season.

does anyone NOT remember last season?  We played up to and beat a LOT of the harder teams in the league. It was the Panthers and Islanders and Jets of the league that we could never play down to and they beat us all year long...

What I remember the most is that we did really well in the early part of the season despite Howard playing bad and us icing a 3rd line like Bertuzzi-Andersson-Cleary and Weiss completely failing. 

 

Let's see what happens when we have Pav and Z healthy, backed up by Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan and Helm, possibly a contributing Weiss and a Howard playing like himself. That team is a good team.

I'm not worried. 2 months is a long time and I'm not sure they're in very intense discussions right now considering everyone's probably off on vacation.
