    The bleachers are generic silver, unfortunately. The neon green had a certain character about it. It also looks like there's an increase in handicap seating. Or they're improving camera wells, I can't really tell. Either way I'm pretty sure there's less capacity now.
    I'm fine with all of that. The aluminum will hold up better than the fiberglass, and there should be bleachers in the student section anyway.

    As for the drop in capacity, well, it's not like we're selling out the building on a night-by-night basis. It looks like we can still jam 6,000+ in there with SRO for big games.

    Kind of surprised they updated the 3D map so quickly.

          Love your optimism Pirate. The reality is though, they can't score! The returning players had a 'Goals for' average of 1.9 last season. That isn't getting it done. Looking at the schedule, I'm predicting, 7-9 in Non conference. 12-7-1 in B10. 19-16-1 isn't getting in the tourney. Jake will have to have a GAA of 1.5 to get them anywhere. And remember, MSU is the only B10 team NOT to win a B10 Tournament game. And it may not happen again this year despite Jake's hercelan efforts.

            If the returning 1.9 core improve and are complimented by the new arrivals who knows what they might be able to do offensively. However I wonder how much the scoring is impacted by the system they play.

                  Grandson of Sonny? Does that mean he will attack with a barage of bad jokes and puns? 😀

                  (BTW Sonny Eliot the late Detroit TV and radio personality known for his comedy weather reports had no children.)

                      Thought you'd like to know that the USHL Chicago Steel is representing the USA right now over in Russia for the WJHC Cup (I don't know what WJHC stands for LOL)....and they're evidently doing pretty well. Swept the first round and knocked out the host team. You guys have a couple MSU recruits on that team - #12 Mitch Lewandowski for one. He had an assist and a SOG in the first series. Consider the timing for these rookies like #12. This is thier first outing with The Steel before thier season begins... and it's on the world stage if you will. Says alot about the Coach's confidence to put these yet-to-be-seen USHL incoming recruits out there. Keep your eye on Lewandowski. I've watched him at Detroit Honeybaked. I see potential.
                      I want to be a fan of the best team in college hockey - so that explains why I am a DENVER fan!

                          Agreed on Lewandowski. His skills and size remind me a lot of Matt Berry, but maybe there's some leadership potential? Wore the 'C' for his team last season.

                            There is a rumor that a very successful MSU grad (and professional sports franchise owner) could be following Draymond Green's lead and make a significant gift to MSU athletics. I'm sure you've seen the rendering of what Munn is ultimately going to look like. For that to come to fruition, this is the sort of thing that needed to happen.

                              I'm sure his cash will go towards renovating the six-month-old basketball offices and all hockey will get is an offer to take out a predatory loan.
