5/7 Discussion - Best seat location at the X
 
With a few "The Wild are ****ed for the next couple years" threads out on the forum and a general sense of fan apathy, it's obvious that Minnesota has quite a few holes. But since this has already been covered ad nauseam, today's poll and discussion is a little less serious.

One of my favorite things about the Xcel Energy Center is that there isn't a bad seat in the house. The lower bowl is great and the upper levels give off an old-school feel of being on top of the action (something that isn't the case in many arenas). And that's to say nothing about the suites or club level! So (in your opinion) what is the best place to sit to watch a hockey game at the X and why?

I voted for the clubs. They are high enough to give you a great view of the entire rink, allowing you see plays actually develop and aren't as crowded as the upper deck.

Suites are great for large groups/gatherings, but if I just wanted to watch a hockey game, I'd take the clubs over suites any day.

I voted clubs...I used to get tickets from work that were right on the center red line, first row, club level. The BEST.

suites for me. Really aren't any bad sight lines unless you're in the upper level near the top and have a bunch of leaners in front of you...hard to see the action by the boards then.

Honestly, I would be afraid to sit in the Suites. I'd be looking over my shoulder in fear that the "common sense" guy would come and take away my beer.

To be fair, if you have a High Life in the suites then there's something wrong with you.

Club Level is probably the best overall seating. However, anything meets two of the three is considered game for me:

1) Near the bathrooms
2) Close to the ice so you can see what is going on more up close and personal
3) Beer is within a very short walking distance

If you had my seats last year, you'd know why I picked them

I'm with the Club Level crowd. You get the best of both worlds up there plus the food is better.

<------ has season tickets in the club level. Bask in my greatness.

I have season tickets on the 200 level right above the right shoulder of the opposing goalie for the 1st and 3rd periods. For sheer entertainment and just watching the games these tickets are amazing.

For just having fun and taking in the atmosphere it would be the club level.
