For the record, I never said the Spiders failed because of the building. I went to one Spiders game when I lived there, and I just didn't enjoy watching the game there. The seats are not at enough of an incline so as spectators you are watching the game at more of an even level, rather than looking down like hockey buildings now. Don't get me wrong, for an ECHL team it is sufficient, and with all the talk of San Diego Sports Arena (or whatever it is called now) still being suitable, the Cow Palace is no worse.

All that being said, there is a market for minor league hockey there, as long as they can get to the building through the 101 traffic.
