Add all that together, and you will likely come away with an on ice product that is both better equipped (more $$$ being spent), more appealing to fans, outsiders and UFA's.

This isn't a win....it's not even a win-win. Multiply it by about 100 and you might be close.

I would agree with you 100% if Wang wasn't still the owner. It's good the arena is no longer an excuse, but I don't trust him at all to make the right on ice moves now. I mean anyone else feel another Spezza/Chara for Yashin deal coming up right around 2015?
