They are also adding a new entrance via a new bridge across Bay St, plus upgrading some of the lounges (from just the article). Honestly, I feel they can light up the hallways a bit better, especially the 300 levels - place is starting to look a bit dated.

I forgot about the 905 championship.

I guess we really have 5 championships in the last 3 years

905 (2017)
Marlies (2018)
Raps (2019)
TFC (2017)
Argos (2017)


Yeah it's 5 in 3. Guess he said 4 because MLSE only bought the Argos in 2018 after the championship, so it's not an 'MLSE'championship

I would advise against that realizing the emotional roller coaster of fans like those in the game threads

Facts.

Don't change a thing!

What I suspect is that there will be gazing and whatever it is they are doing in New York and LA and copying that,

They updated the sound system a couple of years ago but I did not know there was anything wrong with the last one.

Now the crap DJs can inflict more harm on fans.

It's almost assuredly theatre lighting and a LED system or something other than Metal Halide lighting.

I wonder if it would be acceptable to install giant cross breeze creating fans near each bucket we could turn on and off as needed.

Raptor fans going to be pissed when the "improved experience" is really about improving the hockey experience.

I like reimagining that I have money in my ScotiaBank account, sometimes. I'm richer than I think!

Mobile food ordering from an app for all, would be great. So would having in-seat pee-holes, sort of like the German beer halls.

I'll take the first if the second is asking too much.

Nobody uses it. Thus the empty seats.

For those too lazy to read

- bridge across Bay St
- Jurassic park screen 40% larger (also will have a secondary viewing area for when multiple games are on)
- real sports bar getting completely renovated
- other restaurants to be renovated
- easier access to arena to help with congestion before and after game as well as to get more pedestrian traffic for restaurants
- app to pre order food and find out what bathrooms have the smallest line up
