My jaded ass thinks it's the Wings who delayed the announcement. I suspect they wanted to wait to see how ticket sales were doing. This announcement coming a few weeks before the game when it's not sold out yet is the teeniest bit suspicious. But I don't give a s***!!
HOT FREAKIN' DAMN!!
Looking back at the interview with mick, this makes a lot of sense. If he never intended to play and the team knew that, I don't think they would have put so much emphasis on the AG during the interview. In hindsight, it looks like a ploy to drum up discussion. I know mick is not employed by the team, but that's just splitting hairs.
Either way, I don't care. This game is going to be awesome. I'm not even excited about the WC itself. The league pretty much ruined it.
