BC Place would be amazing for atmosphere reasons though, keeps the chanting and fans in the arena whereas in outdoors arenas it can get lost.

Personally, I think One Heritage Classic (Canadian v Canadian or US - Hosted by Canadian team), a Winter classic (US v Canadian or US - Hosted by American team) and one other marquee game.
