The ACC as a building was the nicest, my seats were in the platinum section and I was in awe of how nice the arena was. The best atmosphere though for watching a game was the Joe (and I'm not a Wings fan). The argument that old arenas have a better atmosphere is very true. Though at the Joe I'm in the cheap seats, not sitting with the suits which makes quite a difference.

Is Staples Centre the same as the old Great Western Forum in Inglewood? I went to a game there the year after the Oilers sold Gretz to LA. Its the only other place I've been to besides the 3 western Canada rinks.
I've been to the;
Northlands Coliseum (Rexall Place, Season Ticket Holder))
Maple Leaf Gardens (Saw Leafs vs. Canadians during the 1994 Winter Olympics)
Pacific Coliseum (Canucks' old home)
I've seen the Oilers play in all the above except Toronto. I still have the ticket stubs.
