I actually like C the best of any section ($$ not considered). It is a better viewpoint than A or B, because of the slightly higher elevation. Better sight lines in most sections. Of course, dead center in B is great, but that is only 2 sections in that whole price level. A is too close to be good. You miss too many sections of the ice.


I've heard many people tell me that before, but I personally don't get it. I like getting a front row seat, right in the action.


I've been offered seats down behind the penalty box several times and always turn them down. Between the bluelines in C are the best seats, then after that the same sections in D. 23, 24, 25, and i believe 7, 8, 9. 23 and 9 are my personal preferences. I sit in D23.

its a business people. calling it greed is dumb because every company including the place you work at right now could be called greedy. maximize profits. the pens can raise tickets $10 more and still sell out every game then they will do so. they cant make huge jumps in price without having alot of people complain. so my guess is that prices will go up next year as well. not to mention inflation either.

Well, I guess it's a matter of how you watch Hockey. I watch it like a coach would, meaning I want to see the entire sheet as plays develop. I've sat in just about every area of our arena, and been in about 20 NHL rinks, and I find that a little elevation let's me enjoy the whole thing. When I sit against the glass or even the first 15 or so rows, I miss everything but the play that happens right in my zone.

I don't think there was an F in 1990. They added that before 92-93, I think.

Like I said freeze the prices or some day you will be paying $100 per seat in the last seat in the building. Players make enough money and most owners are also making money. Why squeeze tighter and tighter every year. There is no reason any player should make $10 million per year in any sport. It is just insane. Stop the insanity.



As long as people keep paying, they'll keep charging that, and paying players that.

Don't blame the league, blame the fans who pay it.

I've sat two rows back in the Igloo club, and although it was neat when the action was right in front of you, I'd take C tickets, or E front row for that matter any time over along the glass tickets.
