Is one reason they moved in the first place an outdated arena? Would the city be willing to pony up for a new palace for an OHL club?

I believe there have been offers from a NB group. Do they necessarly have to have a new arena yet? They can fit 3000+. They can initiate a plan that would have a new arena built in x amount of years. It would not have to be right away considering they can seat people and have the facilities. Sudbury is one of the oldest rinks in the league. No box seats old bathrooms yet we have not built a new arena. I think we can fit a little more than NB but our facilities are not up to par with the other OHL rinks.
