I sit in row 2 in the upper deck and I have also sat in row 1 to see what it is like. Maybe it is my section ( I'm not short either ) , but if I sit in row 1 all the way back in my chair, the railing blocks my view of the net. I have to lean forward to see the puck cross the goal line. No other way around it. And when I lean, everyone behind me has to as well. And it's worse in row 2. I have to sit up and lean to see the net.
People laugh at the old Winnipeg Arena, and sure you took your life in your hands getting to your seat in the upper deck, but I guarantee you, nobody ever blocked your view there. Not with the seats at like a 50 degree angle.
I'd take a seat in the "Matterhorn" section of the old arena over a my seats in the 300's, row 10 any day.
