I can only be an improvement to the area, and I am sure the local fans will love it. I am very happy that I got to attend a few games at the epic and irreplaceable Joe Louis Arena. I loved every second of the games I attended there and felt privileged as a fan to be there.
Sentiment aside, the Wings deserve the best. I hope this new arena is just that.
I liked Chicago better when my non-hockey savvy friends would say, "Chicago has a hockey team?" - much like the people of Chicago said, at one point in time. Let's get back to that, shall we? Go, Rags!!!
