it has already been stated, no, bobo8192, you said it so yourself, you won't see an NHL Team back in CT, NO ONE HAS BEEN able to pull it off since the transfer to Carolina, and the issue has been the arena, you were on the right track as to where a new arena could be built, but how realistic is that if part of the issue is the CTDA, AS WAS shown in Nassau and Suffolk Counties in the Islanders bid to replace the NVMC, IT was rejected, it's probably time to focus on proposals for a new arena a la MTSC, and what Quebecor is proposing for Le Colisee.
Wasn't HCC/XL renovated after its roof collapsed in 1980?
