. Then again, I doubt anyone gives a **** anymore about fan etiquette, this probably goes on in every arena in the league.
I must admit it was much better in the playoffs, as most fans got on others that dared to stand in their way during play.
As far as treating fans of other teams with respect, Kings fans used to have the reputation of being very respectful. I believe most still are, but the Stanley Cup win has made some of them a little more arrogant, and I have seen some distressing behavior from some fans so far this season.
Every game is going to sell out this year, so the only seats you are going to be able to purchase are probably form the third-party brokers.
Be prepared to empty your wallets for "primo" seats. My two season seats are up in the rafters (but on the red line, I ditched my aisle seats from last season thanks to the aforementioned beer guzzlers). I am paying "only" $71 for the two seats each game. Yeah, I know, that's still a bargain but I expect them to rise again after this season.
But if you want lower bowl seats its going to cost you hundreds. So don't be too sticker-shocked.
Up in the northwest, we have regular verbal harassment/heckling for opposing fans, especially in the upper bowl area AKA the drinkers seats. I'm not too concerned about that, but more of the do's and don'ts of being in an opposing teams' arena.
As for ticket prices, just checking them out now and I found a few in section 119 for $150 each which has got me excited. Those seats are $300+ in Edmonton and more in Vancouver.

Also, holy **** is Vancouver expensive. Tried planning a roadie from the bay up there to visit a friend/go to a game/drink Granville Island but tickets were $100 for the absolute nosebleeds. Per seat.
My road trip starts in Vancouver for the road game there and ends in Anaheim so I'm really looking forward to it! I have a friend who procured us a few nosebleeds in Van for that game and I think we're paying around $400-500 for the privilege to attend.
Are there any hotels in LA near the arena that you'd recommend? Never been to LA so I'm not sure if the PT cruiser is my best option or if I should rent a car/taxi it up everywhere. Wondering if it's better to sleep in LA and travel to ANA there and back or to watch the game in LA and stay the duration in ANA.
