Their doing improvements because there's no other alternative besides shelling out $400 Mil for a new arena. Renovations were going to happen regardless if the AHL stays or not. As it says the article the deal is contingent on Global Spectrum securing an AHL team so at least it's nice to know those in charge understand the importance of the AHL and it's 40+ dates. And perhaps they understand the economic impact an NHL team could have on the region if it returned.
