    The city council will just pick the cash off the money tree they have growing out back.

    LOL........Did I say that my opinion counts? It is being built by Hollywood Slots revenue (which I have contributed to......much more than any Bangor taxpayer that hasn't gambled at Hollywood Slots!). HS is getting table games......guaranteed! Why are you so negative about everything?

    P.S. - Stall ball may have worked for Bob Cimbolek at John Bapst........but it ain't gonna work this time! He needs to get a new hobby.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all

    I don't by this "too far away" thing at all. There's these new things called airplanes and cars.......it's always a drive or a flight for someone. No one seems to be drawing well these days no matter where the Regional is held. Unfortunately, the argument is moot anyway as it concerns Bangor since the facility will be inadequate to host hockey games. Why do I get the distinct feeling that some don't want a Regional or anything else in Bangor??? Almost as if they are afraid that if something is held there and is successful then the flood gates will open and Maine will finally be "in the loop".....???

    No, it isn't......because the new arena will only seat 5,800 for hockey and more importantly will not have ice.

    We will be all right. Lots of fire power up front and the most important game to win is always the last one.

    Here's Mahoneys column http://new.bangordailynews.com/2010/...need-to-panic/

    I guess a week off will do them good, hopefully another good goalie(beaudry) doesn't keep them in this scoring funk

    One other thing, it might hold 8,000 for BBall but what would it hold for hockey?
    If they aren't going to have ice for the new arena don't even bother. it would be nice to be able to travel 5 miles up the road to see Maine play in the NCAA tournament.
