      JVIPER88 7 months ago

      Why wouldn't it be more cost effective? One building vs Two. You'd still have to do all the maintenance, have a crew to do the work, and you'd have two pieces of land occupied that take up a ton of space which also sit empty for more than half the year.

      Brock Corbin No. Cities that have NBA teams usually have NHL teams, so one night the hockey team uses the facility, the next the basketball team. You also have to factor away games, and some times teams play back-to-back nights. But these people have it down to a science so that it flows smoothly and efficiently.

      The ice is usually preserved during the whole season. The water is changed once a year.

    • Digital Brainwaves

      We use '8 x '5 sheets of ice deck to cover the ice. They're specially designed to keep the cold from escaping and they won't melt into the ice either.

    • Carey Conley
      Carey Conley 7 months ago

      SO the argument here isn't Leafs vs's Leafs vs DETROIT? That's a STUPID argument. Detroit has won 11 Cups, and has several since the days of black and white television, where Toronto has, well, Joe Carter. Yep. The frigin' BLUE JAYS. That's Toronto's most recent championship, so for any Leafs fan to imply that the Leafs are somehow "better" when you have NOTHING on us, is ALSO stupid.

      Also, to call Detroit a "shithole," when you've likely never even stepped foot in Detroit - while meanwhile your team has been in a championship shithole - makes us laugh at the butt hurt here in Hockeytown.

      stasher87 length of time to set it up varies between games. what is depicted in the video would be for a Saturday night leaf game with. Sunday afternoon Raptors game. I used to work in the executive suites and had to stay and restock them after as well. it takes them about 2 hours to do the conversion to basketball.

  • Learning2Smile
    Learning2Smile 7 years ago

    It would be funny if condensation occurred and the court became slippery. Conversely this is why some times ice conditions become bad after a different event was on it hours before. Ice gets too soft so the puck creates odd bounces and such.
