This misses the point. f UConn had the money to build a arena with state of the art video, seating and amenities they would build it with greater capacity first and upgrade it over time. This is a purely $$ driven decision. It will be superior to Freitas, but not on par with even other small rinks like Colgate’s Class of ‘65 Arena.
They finally got into a top tier hockey league but can’t really compete because the rest of the programs are in a high cost, low revenue league - leaving the Athletic Department unable to make the necessary investments. Barring a Pegula-like sugar daddy they are stuck.
