...perhaps, however, Im of a mind that theres at least 30yrs of life left in Copps' as its been seriously underutilized since opening in 85, was deliberately left incomplete with a view to renovations including all of the ancillary suites & media facilities the newer buildings boast. Its location is excellent and with a franchise installed will spur redevelopment of the downtown core which is badly in need of the kind of impetus a revival of the arena would engender. Far more cost effective & efficient than building anew. Its got excellent sightlines, all of the infrastructure in place to install the kinds of bells & whistles you'll find everywhere else.
