Joe Louis and this new arena could be the focus of arenas for the tourney. How much does the wolverines rink seat? I know that just got some nice renos done as well
It seats somewhere between 6,000 and 7,000 last I heard. Either way the Detroit area had three stadium ice rinks capable of housing 20,000 plus when this thing is complete. Yost wouldn't be one of my spots.

They can play at.

New Arena
Joe Louis (hopefully still around if not other options are around)
The Palace
Compuware Arena (out in the Plymouth area)

While it is smaller than Yost, I could see them putting some games out there for the lesser draw matchups and it has a decent setup, would probably be used by some as practice facility anyway.
