Since Peter pretty much covered all the stories from yesterday really well right here: Red Wings Roster Updates: Hronek to Grand Rapids, Rasmussen Likely to Stay, Green and DeKeyser Close to Return, enjoy this Detroit News picture slideshow of Little Caesars Arena made out of Legos.

And huge it is. It’s 6 feet long, contains 30,000 bricks, more than 1,000 windows and more than 600 LEGO Minifigures. It’s lit from the inside, and a cutaway view allows a view of a Minifig hockey game on the playing surface. It includes amenities inside and out — restaurants, shops, signage and more. It celebrates the Red Wings and the Detroit Pistons, and once relocated for permanent display at LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Auburn Hills, it will sport interchangeable playing surfaces, allowing both the Red Wings and the Pistons to play.

It’s pretty cool. The only thing that I don’t find realistic is the Lego LCA is full of fans sitting in the seats.
