new faceoff rules. It seems like it just more face time for the linesmen...what is supposed to be 15 seconds or whatever in between whistles turns into 10-45 cause the refs wont drop the puck.

The attention paid to officiating is what I think is s***ty these days. For better or worse, the officiating had its share of s***ty calls in the past, but ever since there have been grander discussions of rule changes it has become a "problem". Now, no matter what happens people will find "problems" with the officiating. If the rules never changed or if the current rules never change people will get over it and deal with it. The whole idea that the league has to constantly address "problems" puts in motion a moving ball that will never end. You will find as many "problems" as you go looking for. Let people acclimate to the game, not the other way around. There is no purity of sport in constant change.

very well said...I cant agree with you more

Yeah, the new arena needs to be built. Mr. I has the real estate, and has had it for a while now. We all know why he bought the nice big piece of land next to the Fox. The only thing he's waiting for is an economic recovery for the building of said arena. Who knows when Michigan will start to turn around?

I'm sure a new arena would energize the Wings' fanbase. Not that it really NEEDS to be, but of course we all know the Joe is not much of a building...besides all the great memories contained there, its sub-par. Great views of the ice though.

If a new arena is built, and the Joe is torn down, I would like to see the Wings play at the Palace up in Auburn Hills in the meantime (for a season). I think this would draw in more people from the burbs, and they'd be hooked when the new arena opened.

And how about a preseason game in Windsor. Who hasn't been to games and seen the cars lined up to go back across the river? Thats a big part of the Wings' fanbase, and can't be ignored. I'm sure theres more interest to be tapped there.

You know I think you`re onto something here. Im from windsor and I think an exhibition ghame would be great. We have a new arena for the spitfires that while it only holds about 6000 seats, would be perfect and show the windsor fanbase their appreciation.

So we need to copy other teams pre-game hype/loud music/lavish scoreboard in order to keep fans with limited attention spans happy?...Would that include numerous years of icing a crappy hockey team as well that have been seen with the likes of Chicago, and Vancouver as well?

If that's the case then I'd rather see a winning team at the Joe that's capable of winning the Cup every year minus all the little extras.

I've been to games in Detroit, Chicago (UC, and the old Stadium), St.Louis, Dallas, Toronto, Nashville, Phoenix, and Minneapolis; they all are unique, and have their own charm...IMO Detroit doesn't need to make any changes.

well sir, you go tell that to mr ilitch who is giving away tickets through the third round of the playoffs in order to fill his arena. Get over it, times have changed. This is not copying, its called staying with the times. why dont they have someone manually zamboni the ice too
