This is great information. In Detroit with the Pistons to be sold in about a month and the Joe being outdated but with tons of character. I am sure this is going through Mike Illitch’s mind especially with the economy the way it is in Detroit. The Red Wings need a new arena and leaving Detroit would really hurt his other business ventures.

There has to be a way to make this work. But just like with sales of anything sometimes repeat sells are harder if the product may not have the same nostalgic value it might have had in the past. I am sure nostalgia also contributes to sales of season tickets.

I know I was sad when my aunt got rid of the season ticket tickets which was in my family since the Olympia.

I’m glad you enjoyed the blog posting Jamie. As a guy who grew up a huge Red Wings fan, I’m practically begging that the situation in Detroit works out for all involved. And I agree that there has to be a way to make it work. I have a lot of respect for Tom Wilson, now with the Red Wings. I believe in him and the rest of the braintrust to figure it out.
