    Rumor: Key Bank Center to get 500 million in renovations

    https://www.reddit.com/r/sabres/comm...m_source=share

    Just a rumor that I was tipped off to by chris ostrander, a prominent Sabres Twitter guy. If true, that's a HUGE upgrade. Expect new seats, scoreboard, and larger concourses to start with, I hope.

    You could build an arena from scratch for that much

    I wouldn't be shocked if it feels that way when done. Wider concourses, new seats, scoreboard....

    Is there someplace else to play if they go full key arena and try to rebuild the entire inside? Seems like that is close to what is targeted for that price tag.

    Nah, they'll do it in stages I'd assume. Like MSG. I think the bowl itself will be fine. Just paint and new seats

    There isn't one. It's all speculation at this point. New seats, paint, and a scoreboard are a MUST. But that's, what? 25 million? This is going to be a huge project, if the price tag is true and its gonna DRAMATICALLY change the arena

    MSG got gutted and it took 3 years at a cost of $1.2 billion.

    Yeah, but they changed the structure. The seating bowl config was changed. KBC doesn't need that. So I think that's why its less.

    From what I've read, they'll build out behind the arena and open the concourses

    Designed by the late hockey enthusiast Jeffrey Epstein, each seat will have a pop-up 14 year-old Lolita for Handjobs during TV time outs.

    At the prices they charge to go to the game, they should spend a Billion.

    What do you care? I thought you lived in a rich ass community of billionaire sports team owners who give you the hookup anyway? Sounds like you don’t pay and could afford it if you did have to pay.

    Or what they did in Cleveland with Rocket Mortgage Field House(aka The Q).

    I would rather a real NHL team play in a decent arena than a shirt-storm playing in a hockey palace.

    i am a fan of new paint and emblem carpets in locker rooms. Brings in those FAs
