The official website of the Detroit Red Wings needs to realize the NHL season has started. Why you ask? As I pointed out a week ago, they still maintain NHL games are being televised on ABC, ESPN & ESPN2!
The Wings website has always lacked the most current NHL news, a perfect example is durng the NHL Draft, when all other team websites were updating as the picks were being made, the Wings still had a pre-draft story up on their site; 24 hours after the draft had taken place. Hmm, can we take a look at the Wings Entry Draft History? Geez, it looks like the 2005 Draft hasn't even taken place!
Well at least they are trying to help out the bars and restaraunts around the Joe. Under the 'Interactive' menu on their site there it is 'Local food and Entertaiment, so what do you think is listed. One venue, the Hockeytown Cafe, which happens to be owned by the Ilitch Family. Is that the only place in the area? Not by my calculations, there are at least 15 such establishments, all closer to the JLA than Hockeytown is.
Hey, Hey Hockeytown, this is embarrasing!
Oh yes, it almost slipped my mind, but I did try to email the Wings through the website and received the following message:

They may want to try to fix that too!
