Jack Johnson Staying at Michigan

from the An Arbor News via Mlive,

Well, for years people in the prairies, Pittsburgh and Columbus -- not to mention Winnipeg and Quebec City -- have stood on the sidelines watching the big teams buy up all their stars. Meanwhile, fans in cities where team operated on lean, responsible budgets continued to support their teams despite having little chance to chase the Cup. All that's changed now and just because the party isn't heating up for the Leafs or other irresponsible clubs doesn't mean the system won't work.
