    Practice facility getting some security updates, and color scheme of signage may change.

    I've seen a few articles recently that has the MTS Centre at 15,003, which would be a drop of 12 seats I believe. That could account for the camera seat kill.

    The $500,000 upgrade to the ice plant is interesting. I never saw a problem with the ice at the Moose games, but maybe with the additional 7,000 people etc. on a nightly basis, there will be a lot more heat to contend with.

    What about the rumoured upgrades to the scoreboard? HD on the replay board and the like?

    I imagine a more significant renovation plan will be developed over the course of 2011-2012 and be implemented in the summer of 2012. This is probably all they had time for on short notice, and should be more than sufficient for year 1.
