It's like ESPN how they'd rather show Poker over quality television b/c it gets ratings.

Hosts have to present the topic for them to be ripped, the 97.1 crew knows nothing about hockey or the Wings so there's no opportunity to rip them.
I don't agree with this really.

Stoney and Bill talk Wings hockey a lot.
Valenti and Foster talk Tigers and Lions because that's who calls in. When they talk Wings Valenti just rips the team until they change subjects.
Wojo doesn't talk much hockey because he is normally too busy acting weird on the radio with hi co-host.
Caputo talks hockey a lot. They even bring Ken Kal for a Hockeytown segment a lot.

The Wings don't get the majority of time, but they still get talked about.
