I remember how Wings players used to step it up a notch on the excersise bikes (training room), when the owner walked into the area. The Illitches actually owned the building (JLA), that the Red Wings played in. How many sports franchise owners can say that?

The envy of the NHL, as they didn't just charter flights to & from away games....they had their own jet (Red Wing 1).

I saw that and it's so noteworthy. Ms. Parks was a national treasure. He loved her into a safe area after she had been a victim of violence. May he rest in peace.

I can understand being sad at someone's passing, no matter how long and successful their life.
