I think I saw the Panthers-seating problem last week for the first time and I was all "oh my god that's like Atlanta in it's worst days".

But then I figured out myself that it probably would be VIP lounge or press or something like that. You may see this for press seats in Europe in football stadiums. As they are a lot bigger, it doesn't attract attention to you in TV like in an NHL rink here. The camera is on the same side too, so it points into the other direction.

Optically, it really is a bad decision by the Panthers to have it like that.

BUT... is Florida the only team in the NHL doing something like that? Having great seats sold to "business"-fans which pay 500% more than the average visitor?
