Most guys have a little tell. You look at where the puck is in relation to their feet, or the way they’re bending their knees to get ready to shoot, and you just know what’s going to happen before it happens. But the problem with Datsyuk is that he fools you with his intentions. He will be way out on the wall with his hands, feet, and eyes positioned for a cross-ice pass — and it’s the right decision. It’s what 99 percent of players will do in that situation. So you instantly start cheating your eyes over to where he’s going to pass. Next thing you know — what the hell? — the puck is behind you in the net. He shot it. Who shoots from there? Datsyuk shoots from there.
Near the 12 stops along M-1’s route, at least 10 housing plans are in the works. Some are still on the drawing board and others will be open by the end of the year. They include:
■A 300-unit complex is intended on the site of the parking lot in front of Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers. That project is being spearheaded by Olympia Development of Michigan, the real estate arm of Ilitch Holdings Inc. The Ilitches, who own the Tigers, also are behind the plan to overhaul 45 blocks north of downtown. The area includes the Red Wings arena being built along Woodward and will have an M-1 Rail stop.
■A 200-unit housing project is slated for an empty lot in Brush Park, developed by the principals of Broder & Sachse Real Estate Services Inc. in Birmingham.
■Also, 250 residential units are part of the huge plans for the former Hudson’s site, which will include 225,000 square feet of mixed-use space and 900 parking spaces. That project is being developed by Gilbert.
The rail project also is drawing investments in smaller buildings, key to erasing the pockets of blight that still plague Woodward.
As you can see this is a much bigger project than just a sports arena. I'm very hopeful that the city is finally moving in the right direction.
As much as I'm a fan of Miller on the fourth line (& of course star wars nicknames), I'd really like to see how well a callahan-glendog-ferrero fourth line would play together sometime in the next couple seasons.
Good article appeared in today's Toronto Star on the procedure Mr. Howe went through and what they found afterwards. Quote of the article from
Dr. Steven Cramer, a neurologist at University of California Irvine, who was brought in to look at the findings from his case:
“We don’t know the risk and we don’t know the benefits yet,” said Cramer, who plans a study using Stemedica cells. “Write your senator or whatever the Canada thing is and get these trials funded,” said Cramer, adding: “I do not suggest to my patients to go outside of the U.S. and do what was done here.”
