5. The SE Michigan infrastructure is built so that everything leads to Detroit. Until you can build a diagonal freeway connecting Ann Arbor to Pontiac, Detroit is always going to be a central location....
Yea Illitch wants to be seen as the guy to save Detroit...with other people's money. Detroit is a ghost town, it was a mistake for the NHL to build the Devils' arena in Newark and Detroit is ten times worse than that. In my book put it in the suburbs or anywhere else he wants to but not near the city. Change cities if you must. Call them the Michigan Red Wings.
