It might be tough for the goalies to see the puck in the new arena. It looks like the entire ice is being screened.

Yeah, but you know the softball Detroit media will find a way to cover it up. They are so transparent.

They should be more honest, then. You know what they say: Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive...

In some cases, authorities have even needed to step in, to restore order:

In photo one they were asking for money. In photo two they already had it and plans to include a basketball team.

In other words, photo one was the dating profile picture.

Pretty sure that Tom Wilson said that the mesh will be coming down before opening night.

Bummed about the roof obviously as I titled this thread...

But I do think the roof tiles they were touting earlier are actually all over the interior. I wonder if some study about snow scared them out of that design. It would be nice if they actually addressed it as it was the feature a ton of people were really excited about and they scraped it and went all crappy pizza pizza on it without so much as an explanation.

The mesh will hang forever in our hearts. When you look up, it will be there. Right next to #91.

I would keep the mesh up it looks pretty cool, But i'm pretty sure that Tom Wilson told some of the reporters that it was coming down here shortly.
