Some owners like to win. Illitch has turned his attention to the Tigers where he can have an influence on outcome. They are pushing to win a World Series and he will likely accomplish the feat just like when he made the commitment to win the Stanley Cup. Now he has very little influence on whether the Wings win the Cup or not.
