The reason all of these companies are coming in now is because they know they can get whatever they want from the city. None of them was willing to take the risk to build the building, but now they are cherry-picking a finished facility.

Washington is inept, selfish and won't add the charges to his tickets that would have balanced the building's budget. Zoldan, I would trust to run a good operation.

Youngstown is a bad town with an arena it obviously won't support or let grow. None of the big and/or medium acts will play there, so what is the big deal.

All Global Entertainment did wrong was over-promise and under-deliver. A good lesson.

USHL is the league they are interested in. Ive heard of a youngstown team joining the USHL in 2008 since columbus joined last year.On numerous occurences have youngstown/ Mahoning Valley brass visited with the brass in columbus.

Youngstown would flourish in the USHL. It's time to give up on the dream of hockey succeeding in Columbus and Chicago. Both markets are over-populated with hockey from College to NHL. Move Chicago to Port Huron and Columbus to Youngstown or Flint, once the IHL folds.

Would there be any chance of the Phantoms jumping to the USHL?
