You know for losing Stewart, Homer and Lids, we are in freaking 6th place, yesterday it was 4th. With all those young superstars on Edmonton, look where they are sitting. This team has done very well despite who we lost.
You make it sound like he just gave everyone that out of the good of his heart. I'm pretty sure he made a hefty profit on all of those things.
He's old and possibly senile, and he drinks too much.
Let's lighten up a bit here. Poking fun at the guy must mean we hate everything he's ever done and think he's a bum.
That's the American Dream, isn't it? I agree with 55fan - this forum in general has gotten a lot more whiny and a TON more disrespectful since I joined back in '07. The man single-handedly put Detroit back on the map as a sports town. He has provided most of us (including me) a hockey team that has made the playoffs in almost every year I've followed them with his own money... and don't think he was making wild profits back in the lean years when he was giving away a car every game to get people in the seats. I think he deserves a reward - both in money and *RESPECT* - for bringing sports, fans and jobs to my favorite city in the world.

Neither of them are as bad as they look right now, but then again Suter isn't as good as he looked in the past. Thank god Detroit didn't go out and spend that money on him, what a giant f***up. Still not sure how anybody (other teams included) thought this guy was as valuable as they did. Unreal.
