Yet to find any expert on why the XL shouldn't be renovated.

Most are completely negligent in the knowledge of what it would cost the taxpayers if the building is not renovated.

Joe Markley is ignorant enough to think that UConn can just play in Storrs and make
The same money for the state. That's not even remotely possible.

What's even funnier, Evo, is the hissy fit he'll throw once the state had to bond money to build the UConn arena on campus. Yes, even after he would argue against the XL because they could play on campus, he'd then start all over again to try and prevent UConn's arena too. The guy is a classic example of the village idiot.

Whether the NHL returns or not - and no one is arguing it isn't a pipe dream - it's time to pay the piper in terms of the XL. It was deemed inadequate when we still HAD the Whale, and rightfully so. An arena plan was passed back then knowing something had to be done, Karmanos wanted more $$$ and didn't take the deal - we all know that story. The state in typical fashion has kicked the can down the road these past 20 years. Can't keep doing that with facilities that require maintenance and upkeep by just applying band-aids. The big problem for the people of the state that deserve an upgraded arena is that our illustrious lawmakers have put us so far behind the 8 ball with debt that it's going to be a huge challenge to find a responsible way to get a renovation done. Casino revenue, Income tax, etc., and these clowns have this state in a financial mess. I've said it before - I hope they can get their act together soon enough for me to see it before I move the heck out of this state.

It's been proven that more are moving out of this state than moving in. If my family wasn't here, I'd be living elsewhere right now.

"The people of the state deserve a up grade arena" ??? Pray tell why??? I noticed that the Uconn mens basketball game had a ton of empty seats for the Memphis game. Look, We all pretty much agree NO NHL for Hartford except markie, metoo and one or two others. The only city that has an up to date new arena is Quebec with no NHL. Was that a huge mistake?? Maybe yes maybe know. One thing for sure they have a much better chance than Hartford. Am I narrow minded on this? Could be, but I'd be pissed off if I lived in Ct. Once again if NO NHL Is this mega upgrade for uconn and a circus, tractor pull, monster trucks, another indoor soccer team or maybe a few mega concerts.

Mr. Top Cat, you think the XL Center should not be remodeled? Why? I know my cousins would love to see the Whalers back. I'm not in Connecticut, but if the politicians screw up, I think it will cause Connecticut citizens to start a revolution. The XL Center was Connecticut's pride and I think it could be again.

Teenie please stop including me in your posts. You're a naive child who knows only what your family expresses. I don't know if you noticed but nobody responds to your childish posts. Nobody cares about your boat, water skiing, your father mother uncle cousin etc. Go to the beach and knock yourself out Enjoy your childhood and play with your friends. Life is ****.
