I'm so excited that MSG is upgrading the ice plant/refrigeration system to modern standards !!! Here's hoping that the Rangers' performance will be enhanced by a consistent quality of ice on a game-by-game basis.

What was the reason for such craptastic ice at the World's Most Famous Arena for so long? Was it the structural layout of the floor? Piping within the concrete? Rinkside temperature/humidity controls? I'm hoping to find out from the insiders dissecting the old floor...

If you thought puddles, snow, slush, ruts, and bouncing pucks were the worst features of MSG ice, it doesn't hold a candle to the old days... when it affected the outcomes of games, or ended playoff series (AND PLAYERS' CAREERS) abominably: http://www.nytimes.com/1990/03/26/sp...ted=all&src=pm
