Kukla's Korner Hockey

A Slap in the face - A total disconnect. Those words are being tossed around on the Detroit airwaves today regarding the lack of a sell-out at Joe Louis Arena last night.
I have been beating the drum for over a year now, warning anyone who would listen, the Wings were not doing enough for the great hockey fans of Detroit. Now, what do they do?
No more spin and blaming the economy, sure that is part of it, but the Detroit Tigers drew over 3 million fans this season.
It is time the Wings look internally, start taking care of the fans, the fans who have been with them for years and right now feel embarrassed for themselves.
Other NHL teams open their practices, have pre-game, post-game parties, entertain the fans and make it a fun experience. Other NHL teams give access to bloggers, who in turn promote the team and at time take shots at the team too.
The Wings, they do nothing, and it has caught up with them. Will they react?- At the point, I haven’t a clue.
See Abel to Yzerman for the print media reaction…
