and the city of detroit sucks a lot of ass, but there are a lot of nice suburbs

but i'm also very glad they didn't pick up parise, suter, or carle. the wings definitely will not be as dominant as the wings i grew up with. good news lol
Losing Lidstrom will do more then just hurt them stats wise, they lost their leader off the ice, their heart and their soul are gone as well, plus they haven't replaced him on the ice. Some of those guys Bertuzzi 37, Holstrom 39, Datsyuk 33, have their best years behind them.
