IMO, and this is coming from a spoiled Red Wing standpoint, once you give a guy a C you mark him as that for his career. You don't take it back and you don't trade him (Unless things go horribly wrong you're the Dallas Stars).
Sharks post-season is always a disappointing spectacle... perhaps they thought they would start out the year in chaos, and reverse psychology would kick in?
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!!!
