There seems to be a lot of confusion as to whether the 2017 GLI will take place. Tech, the official host of the GLI, doesn't have it on its schedule and neither does UM nor MSU. Bowling Green, on the other hand, has it listed as Mon 1/1 through Thurs 1/4. This will take the holiday shine off the tournament this year.
Of course the big problem is likely the Pistons being the second tenant in the new arena. Why is it so difficult to get two days nailed down at the Oven for the GLI? Either Tech had it easy at the Joe with Olympia or the Pistons (or perhaps the Wings/Olympia) are playing stingy now.
Would nice to see some real reporting from USCHO or perhaps the Freep or Detroit Snooze on this issue. Would be a shame to see the GLI exiled to after the holidays or perhaps Northville.
