...but if I had a vote for most valuable owner, it would go to Mike Illitch of the Detroit Red Wings.
Year after year the product Illitch puts on the ice as every bit as good as the pizza he puts in the boxes of his first-love business: Little Caesars. His baseball team, the Detroit Tigers, are every bit as good (and well run) as his efforts to reignite development in downtown Detroit. He has his critics, but by and large, Illitch is an owner who understands that you can never go wrong by hiring good people and then giving them what they need to do great work.
His hockey operations are a case in point.
