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
The problematic part would be the international size ice. JLA doesn't have it, I don't think the new arena would and Yost doesn't either. The only place I could see you putting in an international sized rink would be Comerica. And I don't know if the novelty of a WJC being hosted outdoors would be something that would get people pumped up. I honestly don't know of any major ice arenas in the area that have an international size ice surface.
