Good organizations make people want their employees. I'm surprised Park never got an AHL head coach job.

Is this project really worth all the criticism it is getting. I figured most arenas get paid for by the city so I don't understand why the big fuss about tax dollars paying for it?


Well.....Considering Detroit is bankrupt.


What helps more, blocks and blocks of blight, or 3 major sports venues a stones throw away from each other with residential, retail, and restaurant space along with concert venues?

Do any of the other major cities have an arena, football stadium and baseball stadium so close together?

I saw what the Van Andel and accompanying restaurants did to Grand Rapids. It went from a ghost town downtown after 6:00 to being busy most of the time. That was just an arena and a couple refurbished buildings turned into retail and restaurant space. Condos, other restaurants and bars, etc. came along on their own as more people started showing up. Hopefully this new district does the same for Detroit.

Keep the shootout but drop the loser point.

In Topic: Callahan and Nestrasil re-signed

You guys are seriously over rating him. He's projected as a 4th line agitator, not a second line scorer.


 
I said he was better than Cleary, who is projected as being nowhere in the NHL without his man-crushees.

A 4th line agitator/mini-Holmstrom>absolutely nothing. Callahan brings skills that this team has lacked for a while.


That doesn't mean he'd be claimed on waivers
