Who were those relics on city council who said building this arena wouldn't be a good idea lol

I am no longer a resident of St Kitts ... At least I do t have to pay for it anymore.

Resonator if you think the atmosphere at the MC is good, you missed some incredible atmosphere at the Jack during the playoffs.

I've yet to leave the MC with my ears ringing, like they used to at the Jack ... What a dump but some great memories for many of the 3145 who attended in the playoffs ...

At least there were enough people there to see the light. Mr. Burke couldn't convince anyone in Niagara Falls to change their plans for the Gale Centre and expand it from 2,170 to 5,000!

Probably would be cheaper if made from scratch. The location of that arena also doesn't really bode well for 5,000 people regularly attending. I mean that arena is how old and the main road to it was just partially completed last fall?

IMHO the location of the MC is ideal for crowds such as those we experience. Great highway access for the entire region ...

Gale Centre would have been a night mare if the Ice Dogs moved there before the road was built it was bad enough when you went to a Canucks game.

The Gale Centre was opened in 2010 but I believe the IceDogs made a pitch to Niagara Falls shortly after landing in St. Catharines, so there was ample time to adapt to a larger arena if there was the political will (there was not). Had that occurred, the road would have been completed sooner as new businesses lined up to provide services for the influx of 4-5,000 hockey fans and the area between Stanley Ave and Victoria Ave. would be developed much more quickly. There is easy access to that area just off the QEW and Thorold Stone Rd.

That said, there are two factors at work that more readily support the IceDogs in St. Catharines:
1) If it isn't tourist related, the politicians in Niagara Falls won't support it
2) People from Niagara Falls will go to St. Catharines but the converse is not true.

At the end of round one, I think it is appropriate to congratulate the teams not moving on to the next round in the East. Firstly to Ottawa, while they only won one game, they managed to keep every contest close. To Peterborough and Mississauga for giving higher ranked teams a true battle all the way to game seven! And lastly to Oshawa for qualifying for the playoffs and hanging in there tough as long as they could.

That is so true! Even the comments in here "oh the Gale Centre would be too hard to get to" ......... ever try to explain to someone about St. Paul Street or the invisible arena that you have to take a magical walkway to lol. It is very Harry Potter-ish! I do love all the bars and restaurants in dt St. Kitts but Gale Centre had parking on site for 900 cars!
