08:18 AM ET 02.05 | With momentum pushing clearly in the direction of a new arena for the Red Wings, more logical questions are being asked. The Ilitch family is tight lipped when discussing the stadium, and it's too soon to do more than guess on what moniker will be applied to the arena -- or who it will be up to. We don't know for sure if it will be publicly or privately owned. ... [Odds] are the new Wings home will have a corporate name because naming rights deals are an easy source of cash to pay down construction debt. One possible naming rights contender is Ada-based Amway Corp. In September 2011, the Wings inked a deal with Amway, the network-based direct-marketing giant, to become the team's first-ever presenting team sponsor.

Ilitch will have to expand into the taco and burrito market to make it happen. Pizza alone just isn't enough dough.

Nice Roamer.....and not only would that name it but it'd also heat it.

One thing about dough is Ilitch has never been afraid to spread it around.
