Will BAC make precautions to improve ice quality?

I remember back during our cup run, the Miami Arena had to bring in external machines to help with the heat/humidity inside the building to help improve the quality of the ice.

Will the BAC do the same? I know Nashville is installing theirs right now (read on a post).

Our ice is already one of, if not the crappiest in the league. I do hope they do something about it.


Can someone tweet Goldie or Billy or Dorkmark or anyone from the organization and find out? How about you GR? Care to ask them for us?

Didn't they already improve it this season? I don't recall any problems with our ice this season.

Having skated at the BAC multiple times including this year, it is one of the worst ice surfaces I have ever skated on. Just terrible.

Ice is bad. Played there several times as well. Even on a "cold night" in FL it's still bad. Swamp water was never meant to be a sheet of ice.

Weren't they talking about replacing the cooling system under the ice a couple of years ago? I know the puck always seems to bounce around alot.

Its probably an advantage for us. Im sure our team is much more practiced at skating on crappy ice than other teams, meaning it will affect us less than them. So why do something about it?

What, they can't pump in the water from the Brooklyn Water Bagels shop?

I don't think it's like the parquet floor at the old Boston Garden, where knowing where the dead boards were gave the Celtics an advantage.

I think the bad ice impairs both teams fairly equally.
