It touched upon how Malloy was looking to build a new arena as part of a bigger development in state, but not necessarily in Hartford.
Interestingly enough news came out yesterday that the state is close to an agreement with an Arizona firm to development around Rentschler Field and the investment will be in excess of several hundred million dollars. Does this news now give legitimacy to the NY post report? Is an arena in the works as part of a larger entertainment destination in East Hartford? The space and parking is there.
Good find, you could very well be right; however I think it would be a big mistake to build an arena for a future NHL team outside of the city center.
