News@noon: Do svidaniya Datsyuk, one last game at Tiger Stadium

The Detroit News

Today is Monday, April 11, 2016, and the Red Wings have made the playoffs for the 25th consecutive year, even though they had to rely on a Boston loss to squeak in. But with the series opener against the Lightning coming on Wednesday, news that Pavel Datsyuk might leave the team at the end of the season has left no time for any good feelings.

The question of the day: If Datsyuk does decide to leave, what should the Wings do about his $7.5 million cap hit for next season?

Here's what else is making news today:

Roby's Shoes owner Sharil Roby says there is not place to park in front of her store due to M-1 Rail construction on Woodward between Milwaukee and Grand Boulevard so business has drastically declined.

M-1 rail woes

  • The M-1 Rail offers the promise of more customers to businesses along its path — if they can survive until it opens. For several businesses on a block of Woodward Avenue between Milwaukee to Grand Boulevard, their survival is in question because the construction has eliminated off-street parking and reduced foot traffic. For others, they’ve turned the seeming hardship into a business strategy, offering curbside service to those who can’t make it into their shops.
