Trouba = both of these things. He's 22. Plus he's good size, a Michigan boy, and right handed in addition to his good play and high ceiling. He's a no brainer trade target imo


Yes and he would absolutely a dream come true. Winnipeg would be incredible stupid to let him go but hey it would be a huge win for us.

Danny D. - Trouba for the next 10 years? Boy sign me up for that plus both are Michigan boys :)

Anything with "Little" in it sounds dorky and puny.

Haha reminds on that famous police academy scene, someone sprayed Dork on Harris' chest and he walked around being the laughing stock at the beach and then complained to the chief of Miami. Yeah little and hockey doesn't match at all but there is no way they are going to change anything. still a shame when a team has so many deserving guys and yet they aren't even mentioned...just sad

What do you mean "What's next?" 
 
You're acting like this is out of the norm.
 
This has been commonplace for quite a long time.

Maybe not in Detroit but we have had the oldest arena.

Maybe it has but then it's time to chance it back. MSG is the only arena left without a sponsored name such a shame really.

Can't wait till the oilers announce their name for that plastic dome, although everyone knows it should be named after #99

They were going to sell the rights to some company.  To think otherwise is really naive. 
 
So all this "it should have been named after a Red Wing" is pointless.  Where in the NHL has that happened in today's day and age??


That's the point we aren't talking about your every day expansion , sunrise team here, this is Hockeytown, history, tradition, original 6 and all-time great players who deserved to have it makes after them

I'd rather be naive than accepting some of the stupid stuff that's going on in today's day and age. Better to change things back to the way they were what a next ads on players jerseys? Sponsored team names? Corporate bulls*** and marketing shouldn't have a place in such a historic sport.

Yeah, sure it would be pretty cool if it were given a better name, or if it were named after one of the greats, but it's not the worst thing that could happen.

Regarding the top of the dome, if I'm not mistaken, wasn't it said that they would be able to change it for different events? Like for a concert, they could have the band logo or artists name on top, maybe they'll have the Winged Wheel up there for every game as well.

Regardless, no matter what it's called or what logo is on the top, it's not going to stop me from ever going down for a game and rooting on the Wings...

The problem is it sends the wrong message. Naming it after the all-time greats, the best owner in all of sports would have kept things consistent, the only difference between this and one of the other super expensive arenas will be the location, nothing else. There is no history, no Stanley cups just bland plastic luxury dome.

Backslash won't do anything because that weasel Wilson will find some way to spin it as a good idea, which it is not
