bitching about the arena in general is the first step. lease, location, etc comes first before the dialogue ramps up

not saying that the team is gonna move, but i think dundon is going to use it as leverage at least

As he should. No one (Dundon / Karmanos) has really been happy with the arena deal. I think they were expecting more development to be around the arena which never happened and there has been tons of discussion around moving the team downtown for years. I don't know if that is a good idea or not.

In other news, big win last night. 4 out of 5 road wins in the last 5 games.

yeah because the university owns so much of the surrounding land for football parking, there isn't a ton of opportunity for that area to grow and become more appealing for a destination - aside from going to a game.

It's not. There's no need to replace a 20 year old building, regardless of where the replacement would go. I'd love to see the Canes/Dundon try and convince the public/Raleigh to pony up public money for it though, because their arguments and reasoning for it would be highly comical. The PNC Arena is fine, and outside of minor cosmetic changes in the next 5-10 years, there's no need to replace it.

Either the Canes and State come to a better agreement on scheduling/dates, or the Canes bail in 2024. A new arena deal is a non-starter for a terrible team in a questionable hockey market at best.
