Its a simple shell that wasnt completed, finished as the city wanted to make sure they'd landed a franchise before doing so. It was the first of its kind in North America of the generation of arenas' that followed from Ottawa to Vancouver. If Copps' is "unsuitable", then so too is the Roy Rogers & Scotiabank amongst others.
Well by being insufficient right now I think he is saying the arena is not up-to-date in terms of broadcast facilities, Corporate suites, club seats and possibly a few other things as well like NHL locker rooms.

I'm curious as to who will pay the $150 million or so it would take to update the facility. That always seems to be glossed over. I' have my doubts about the city council there considering they nearly bungled the Pan Am stadium and ended up with a rather mediocre facility (based on the rendering) at that.
