If reports are true, Mike Ilitch could be thirty days away from owning the Detroit Pistons and The Palace. There is speculation that The Red Wings could move from Joe Louis Arena to Auburn Hills until a new downtown arena sealed. Barring a ‘Wings Championship’ this season, the Wings’ at ‘The Joe,’ could be a memory!
It does appear likely that Mr. Ilitch will be the new owner. If a now downtown arena is eventually built, what does that mean for the future of The Palace? The Palace is still relatively new as arena’s go. Just having concerts and events with no major sports teams doesn’t make sense. This scenario will get pretty interesting in the coming months and years.
Would you rather see the Wings downtown or at The Palace?
