Kitchener Memorial Auditorium, because it reminds me so much of the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium.

Yes I know but the inside is in the process of being stripped bare. If you go to the south side of Carlton St. in the night (It's easier to see in a lit window during night hours than the daytime), you can see in the windows above the main entrance and let's put it this way, you can see the Wood St. balconies... or what's left of them.

I'm just glad that we managed to save MLG from being demolished unlike a lot of other Original Six arenas in the continent.

That is why I posted the outdoor pics. And yes, he also said he liked smaller arenas under 12,000 seats. So here is one:

Sears Centre (cap. 9,000 for hockey), Hoffman Estates, IL:

In brief, the NHL doesn't have a national cable contract. Every other sports league in the US does (MLB, NBA, NFL). The goal was to grow the game in "non-traditional markets" and create a footprint across the United States and not just the North.

This strategy has taken a lot of slander though, specifically because the NHL chose to relocate 2 Canadian teams in the process of following this strategy. Now, with Tampa, Florida, Atlanta, and specifically Phoenix showing vast amounts of empty seats (with the exception of Phoenix lately), calls have been coming from Canadians and many Northern Americans to relocate the teams from the "non-traditional markets" to more traditional ones, more specifically Winnipeg and Quebec City, the two cities that lost their team in the mid-1990s. Southern Ontario is also viewed as a gold mine. Among US markets, Milwaukee is often mentioned but it does not have an NHL ready arena or plans to build one. Not to mention it is also close to Chicago and the Blackhawks (being one of the oldest teams in the league) likely would attempt to foil any attempt to place a team there. Plus the NBA's Bucks aren't doing too well as it is so who's to say an NHL team would do better?

Why do people always throw Tampa Bay into the bad attendance discussions? They're traditionally been pretty strong and are now 20th of 30 with a much worse team.

It's just seen as another sunbelt market that can't draw. The worst case is San Jose who have sold out every game this year (and for the last few years IIRC) and people still consider it a weak market.
