When I was in MTL in October, I got a tour of the Bell Centre, and they already had their ice in, logoed, and even viewable to us, which was amazing since they had concerts in there the night before and after. Unfortunately, their banners weren't visible (as they retract them up into special compartments in the roof, like we do with our scoreboard, during non-hockey events). When I asked why they had ice there already, I was told it was protocol, "just in case" the lockout suddenly ended. Like the Jets, the Habs have a separate practice facility they regularly use. So I don't know what to make of that. Likely was just an arena decision... But I was surprised after hearing that, that the Jets didn't already have those things done. Not that I'm complaining -- we have a top notch organization!
