DETROIT (AP) - With the city of Detroit facing an uncertain future after this week's bankruptcy filing, the Detroit Red Wings are still hoping to have a new arena soon, the Tigers are defending their American League title and the Lions are preparing for the start of another NFL season.
During Detroit's financial struggles over the years, it's been largely business as usual on the ice and the playing field. The bankruptcy filing Thursday left the entire region a bit shaken, but the professional sports scene may be spared any dramatic impact.
Brian Holdwick, an executive vice president for the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation, says there's no reason officials can't still move forward with a $650 million plan for a new hockey arena.
