Every arena should have glass like the Air Canada Centre (and several others)....where the low glass are long panes that have a lot of give.

This helps both the visibility of fans since less panes and supports are used and the give of both the panes and the supports reduces injures.

At the ACC I've leaned against the glass there and it leaned with me.....not much...but enough to tell that it cushions the blow of a hit against it.
