Detroit is a rising city, with a growing food scene, great sports and so much to do, but it appears former Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Jurco didn't see it that way.

In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Jurco, who was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks last month, said there's a lot more to do in Chicago than in Detroit.

"In Detroit, we were so bored," he told the Tribune. "My girlfriend and I, we didn't know what to do. There wasn't much to do. Here there's so much stuff to do."

During the interview, Jurco also discussed the biggest difference between playing for the Blackhawks and playing for the Red Wings.

"We're told to make plays instead of just making safe plays and chipping it in and playing safely," Jurco said to the Tribune. "Here you actually should create something if you want to stick in this lineup because there's so many creative players."

Jurco played 16 games for the Red Wings in 2016. He had no points and was a minus-8. He has played in six games with Chicago.
