A second ice surface is part of the new plans. I have followed every pro hockey team in the area since around 1970. They have all failed somehow in the end. I still will be excited to see someone try again. This ownership group has a lot of money and has done similar things in similar cities. I understand the skepticism due to the above mentioned failures. What I don't understand is the people that are angry that an outside group wants to put money into our area and try to do something.
People here have been conditioned by former pro hockey failures. UC hockey has become a popular staple of local entertainment. It would be wonderful if both could co-exist successfully.

Yea that would be nice if they could co-exist but there's not enough weekends for both of their games! Without friday & saturday games the attendance would be very low!

It is true, a person not to be named as of yet is looking into two teams. AHL team for Calgary and the Rangers AHL team are looking for a smaller venue.
Good call!

Boom!!! Like I said in the beginning of this post, it's going to happen and I'm pumped! College hockey is cool and all but u just can't beat a pro game. Was hoping for the rangers farm team but the flames are just fine by me. Can't wait for their first season to start and I'm definitely getting season tickets.

I was hoping the rangers deal could have been swung but its all the same. Looks like the rangers may land in adirondack. At least that's what I'm hearing.

While I do somewhat agree with the Rangers not needing money, why would they leave Hartford. Money is always in the equation.
hartford is a large expensive building that also happens to be in a area with boston fans. They dont draw well. Would make sence for the rangers to have a ahl team in ny. Ditto the islanders.
