If they could get permanent ice making facility in Arena then it should be more plausible.

One other "problem" with Arena is there is no real atmospher in that buliding (it certainly doesn't match atmospher in Dom Sportova).

But there are obvious positives if they play in Arena, comfort level in Arena is on hole another level.
