You can't seriously be trying to argue that all arenas are just as busy as every other arena.

Staples Center Events Week of April 8-14
Today - Rihanna concert
Tuesday - Lakers vs. New Orleans Hornets
Wednesday - Clippers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
Thursday - Kings vs. Colorado Avalanche
Friday - Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors
Saturday - Kings vs. Anaheim Ducks
Sunday - Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs

Honda Center Events for Week of April 8-14
Today - Ducks vs. Edmonton Oilers
Tuesday - Rihanna concert
Wednesday - Ducks vs. Colorado Avalanche
Friday - Romeo Santos concert

There are no non-Ducks events at the Honda Center for the remainder of the month.

On the other side of the country...
Madison Square Garden Events for Week of April 8-14
Today - Fleetwood Mac concert
Tuesday - Knicks vs. Washington Wizards
Wednesday - Rangers vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
Thursday - Alicia Keys concert
Friday - Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival
Saturday - Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival
Sunday - Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers

Compared to...
Consol Energy Center Events for Week of April 15-21 (Pens fan so I may as well pick on my team's arena...skipping to next week since the Frozen Four is there this week)
Wednesday - Penguins vs. Montreal Canadiens
Friday - Barry Manilow concert
Saturday - Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres
Sunday - Harlem Globetrotters

Consol picks up at the end of the month as far as activity is concerned (more concerts and Arena Football season), but during the season that's a pretty typical week.

A rink that's uncovered 5 days a week is inevitably going to be better than a rink that's uncovered 2 days a week.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
