I personally would like to see the Phantoms return to the Ice Zone...there was never a game that wasn't either sold out or damn near close! I understand that there wasn't a lot of space there, but isn't that the point of a successful business, people actually wanting / fighting to be there. I would love to watch the Phantoms play, being so close to the ice and being able to watch kids having a great time skating on the ice rink behind it. To me the Phantoms lost a lot when they moved to the Covelli Centre. I think if you took that money that was wasted, put in into fixing up the Ice Zone that it could one day be a great success. It's almost embarrassing to see the Phantoms play at Covelli. It's so empty. The cost of parking, the cost of food, the cost of a ticket. It's expensive. You once could go to the Ice Zone, with a family of four and could afford to have a nice night out. Gone are the days. If you need more space, push back a wall, put more bleachers in, serve better food and people will come back.
