Detroit is Hockeytown.
Legally, the Red Wings own the trademark to the name.
Chicago's mayor, Rahm Emanuel, raised a lot of eyebrows on Thursday, saying "Chicago will be Hockeytown, USA!"
On top of that, the city of Warroad in Minnesota owns the trademark 'Hockeytown USA.'
The Red Wings have responded.
I asked Justin Abdelkader on Friday if he had heard what Emanuel said. Once I told him, his response was simple.
"Does he know much about hockey or no? He must not. This is Hockeytown," Abdelkader said.
