    Couldn't agree more with Brian. The poor management at the Pepsi Centre is what is causing it's downfall. The place is absolutely disgusting and is not taken care of, not to mention he has driven one almost two hockey teams out of the building. Time for a change and it starts at the top!!!

    Question: If utilization is a problem why built a new curling rink next to the pepsi center instead of modifying the ice like many other areneas do?
