To be honest I wouldn't care at this juncture either way. If they close it fine, if it's open fine. The goal of the arena was to "revitalize" downtown(eventhough it did take away from a business or two causing them to move) We know after 13 years that just hasn't happened. Sure i'll bet a place like Rounding Third makes some extra cash on game nights or event nights but I don't think it's that much at the sametime.
I want more sports, but it will never happen. Too small a geographical location, etc. The arena is too small for a lot of wishful thinking things. To be honest i've grown a bit bored of the hockey. Seeing the same 3 teams everyother home game gets old. Atleast in the UHL each team had a core and it developed rivalries and intensity, etc. Now it's a lot of roster changing and guys all over the place. The more I think about it the more I would actually be satisfied with USHL or high caliber juniors. Atleast the rosters won't be in flux all season.
