New Red Wings fan here


Hello there Wings fans!! I'm a new convert to the Red Wings fan from the former Thrashers/newly minted Jets franchise. I hope to enjoy my stay here during the regular season and hopefully a long run in the playoffs. I also hope the former owners of the Thrashers and Hawks are all banned by federal and state authorities from stepping foot in the state of Georgia. The reasons why I changed franchises after the jump. JUMP!!

 

Reasons:

1. The way the Jets ownership group jumped ship and sold out at the speed that they did.

2. The long court battle between owners after the Atlanta Hawks decided to go after Joe Johnson pissed me off

3. Dany Heatley murdering his own teammate

4. The constant bungling of the front office and subsequent handling of coaches (i.e firing a well known name around here, Bob Hartley)

5. Also the owners rapidly sold out on their ownership of the NBA's Hawks mere weeks after selling out the Thrashers.

6. What a stable ownership + team situation it is in Detroit. The Illitch family seems to care about winning but isn't that hands on, leaving the hockey stuff to the hockey people. I respect their handling of the Tigers and Wings.

7. I always loved seeing the Wings and Avs battle it out during the late 90s and early 2000s.
