Red Wings training camp’s status remains up in the air

Via Centre Ice Arena's Anne Reeves (on Facebook), Traverse City's 9&10 News reports that the Wings haven't canceled training camp...Yet...

Uncertainty is weighing on the minds of organizers at Centre Ice Arena. Everything depends on a new collective bargaining agreement to settle the labor strife. Organizers are waiting on a phone call to confirm the Wings visit to Traverse City; but, that hasn't happened yet, and there's a chance it won't.

The potential loss has a far-reaching financial impact on not only the arena and the fans in the stands, but the community; hundreds of hotel room reservations now in limbo.

The camp draws thousands of spectators, boosting sales at everything from gas stations to restaurants. Even still, organizers are staying optimistic that the camp will happen.

I admire their optimism, but you and I know that training camp will be canceled and hopefully rescheduled later this year.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
