The side glass wall of the main concourse is now completely removed and they are also putting gigantic lettering of the arena name above where the name currently is. Letters are huge. Reminiscent a little of the UNION STATION sign to the left of Jurassic Park.

I feel like as fans paying top dollar all games should be clothing optional.

How bout some glory hole cubicles in the Men's? With a selection of fine video options to accompany? That would be nice.

They need to build bigger washrooms with more urinals and sinks there's always a big line in the bathroom
also need more concession stands or more concession workers no wonder fans are always late to haltime/end of periods

Valid point. However, I see this problem so commonly at arenas/stadiums.

To be honest, I’ve always been a huge fan of this. Spotlight on the game. It looks really cool, however I know lots of people oppose it as well.

Doubt we get that lighting, would be all up for it though.

I'm probably an outlier, because I'm a big guy, but at 6'7 270lbs I find the seating virtually impossible to sit through anymore, unless I'm lucky enough to get an end isle seat. My wife and I both find the seating incredibly sardine-like. At the very least we should get our own arm-rest. We were just at the NXT event on Saturday and almost left because we felt so cramped (section 303, row 1)

I just posted about this! I'm 6'7 and it's gotten to the point where I probably won't come back unless I'm lucky enough to somehow sit in a box seat.
