  1. This story is old news from 3 months ago. Since then, Windsor Locks has pulled the plug on the project and the developer has withdrawn the original plan. A revised plan was submitted in September. http://www.hartfordbusiness.com/article/20180716/NEWS01/180719934/after-hbj-inquiry-w-locks-pulls-plug-on-200m-mega-sports-complex http://www.hartfordbusiness.com/article/20180814/NEWS01/180819967/developer-withdraws-sports-complex-plan-residents-voice-opposition http://www.journalinquirer.com/connecticut_and_region/sports-complex-developer-revises-plans-for-windsor-locks/article_b9ff7c6a-b123-11e8-b24d-d7be74007c19.html
  2. That's great. Now Hartford just needs to do something about the issue with businesses moving to the suburbs.
  3. It's only a matter of time before this thread becomes yet another flame war between dumb and dumber.
  4. The 6112 who were in attendance are "nobody"?

    Hold up...the HWBC is still a thing? I was so sure they were going to disband after the Whalers left Hartford. What exactly do they "boost" these days???
  6. The announced attendance was 6112. https://theahl.com/stats/game-summary/1018342

    In other words, HE is willing to bend the rules so UConn can play midweek/non-conference games at Storrs while high profile HE games will be played at the XLC.

    Sorry to interrupt this pissing match but who the **** cares where UConn hockey will and will not be playing in a few years?

    “The arena, which will seat 2,500, will serve as the Huskies’ home venue for a handful of games while they continue to use the XL Center in Hartford for a majority of the season.” This quote taken from the article posted above by MarkH2919 should clear up any confusion.

    Tom Dundon, marketing genius

    Now they will be the Whalercanes.

    I don't think anyone seriously thought the state would invest that kind of money to begin with.

    Anything Malloy says should be taken with a grain of salt. The man in unpopular for a reason.

    "Hockey East requires that schools have an arena to play in on campus." Pretty self explanatory.

  15. Was there ever a time when Hartford actually had a real shot at getting the NHL back? Larry Gottesdiener spent several years trying to bring an NHL team here before giving up. And then there was Howard Baldwin's failed plan to test the market by taking over the business operations of the Wolf Pack and rebranding them at the Connecticut Whale.
  16. I was talking about UConn hockey.
  17. Transforming the XLC into a college building is great for UConn but not great for professional hockey.
  18. The same reason why most of us went in 2015 and 2016...

    Bruce Mandell would not be the success**l businessman he is if he had the same mentality as some of us do.

  21. Have you been to a Blues game since they stopped having Whalers Nights after 2016?
  22. Remember when we used to support the Blues because they honored our Whalers and then forgot about them as soon as the Goats started doing the same thing?
