Looks like it will be a very nice facility.

The proposal is for a major renovation and not a whole new facility. The city and the University want to make it more of a multi-purpose facility instead of just a hockey arena. Major improvements would be a much larger atrium entrance area, luxury boxes, some additional seating and improvements to the locker rooms and office areas as well as some infrastructure improvements that would make the facility better for concerts, conventions and other large scale events.

The first of the new arenas in the WCHA will soon be among the oldest. For usability the arena needs a major update.

One positive that will come of this for sure will be a dampening of the sound in the building. They will need to do this if they intend to have any sort of large concert in that building. Don't kid yourself, it is loud lively building. It is not just the fans.

The bonding money for the DECC was passed last year.

There will be a new arena at the DECC.

I didn't mean to imply there was competition this year.
