2. Home of Detroit Red Wings, winner of 10 Stanley Cups including 1997, 1998, 2002.
3. Home of some of the best talent in the NHL including Hatcher, Yzerman, Shannahan, Chelios, Larionov, Lidstrom, Hull, and is Re-adding goile Dominik Hasek. Also, in th past, Lindsay, Howe, and many others.
Therefore, unknown poster, if you wish to call Hockeytown an unfitting nickname for Detroit, I suggest you name a town better suited for it.
***Note*** Sports Illustrated and Yahoo! Sports both agreed in 2007 that the title of "Hockeytown USA" should be moved from Detroit, MI to St. Paul, MN and was published in both internet and press articles.
