I might have seen a favorable sampling because I have seen almost nothing but playoff games there. I went to a couple regular-season games but they were both awful games. A sloppy 1-1 draw against Philadelphia and a blowout of the Kings.

I have not been to Winnipeg but they seem tremendous, very eager to go soon.

Le Centre Bell is definitely my favorite arena, spectacular facility that maintains its volume despite its size. Staples Center is the same size and about the same age, man, by comparison it's like a wake in there. I think some of it is acoustics (sounds carries up in Staples for some reason), but not all of it.
