Can't see much impact WRT hockey. (Don't even know if the old ice plant @ Forum has been maintained after 11 years. FWIW, they did film part of an episode of Monk @ the Forum which was standing in for the Tank.)

But could create a bit more competition with Staples.

What's up with abandoned arenas and mega churches - The Summit in Houston (now Lakewood Baptist Church) and the Forum.

Quote:
Once known as the "Fabulous Forum," the arena in Inglewood, Calif., was home to the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers and the NHL's Los Angeles Kings until 1999, when they left for the new Staples Center. Taken over by Faithful Central Bible Church in 2000, the Forum still hosts concerts and other events.
Any mega-churches in the Phoenix are lookig for a new home?

The forum is a great concert venue. Saw my first few Kings games there too.

I miss going to games at the Forum. I heard the Lakers did a preseason game there a year or 2 ago. I'd love for the Kings to do this. Staples is a modern arena and in a more convenient location, but there was something special about watching a game at the Forum.
