When it comes to the real world of north american sports venues, a building near 40 years old is in fact an "old barn". This is the world where only two NHL buildings (one of them soon to be vacated, the other in the middle of Manhattan) are older than Rexall. In fact, only 5 NHL buildings are over 20 years old. The situation is roughly the same for NBA arenas. The larger, outdoor venues of the NFL and MLB tend to be somewhat older, but even there, only 6 MLB stadiums are older than Rexall.
