Compuware Arena for Plymouth Whalers. Small, yet pretty modern and comfortable.

You're joking, right? I've always heard that that's the WORST arena in the OHL and CHL, because it looks like a typical warehouse that someone just dropped a rink inside of.

If someone says Charlottetown Civic Center, they're a moron

I have only been in the Moncton Colosseum apart from the CCC

In my opinion the top OHL arena is the John Labatt Centre, but I believe the top CHL arena has to be the Comcast Arena at Everett(I've never been there so this is solely based on pictures and information I've found about it).

if you haven't, you should check out our new arena here in Windsor.
The WFCU center is spectacular. Doesn't seat quite as many as JLC but we don't have London's population we don't need 9000. We seat 6500 very comfortably and it's gorgeous

My personal favorite is the new K-Rock Center here in Kingston, but to be truthful it's the JLC in London.

my favourite is the Pacific Coliseum cause I'm a homer, but other than that I would have to go with the Everett Events Center, if the Giants were to get a new building that would be what I would want them to model it after, I especially like the hard bar in there. I also enjoyed the arena in Kamloops but its not even close to the other ones.

They get it for modern nice arena.

For old school, there is nothing like the Medicine Hat Arena. 4006 seats in a rickety old building from 1970 and always full of loud and supportive fans - always sold out. A truly great old barn in which to see hockey.

The Everett Events Center gets my vote. Beautiful arena, and very loud(never go to the EEC without advil). IMO it's a junior hockey experience like no other. Kamloops and Chilliwack both have nice arenas, but their concourses are far too small.

It may not be the nicest, but I love the Pacific Coliseum. It's a great hockey arena with a lot a memories.

Correction - never go to the EEC without a handgun...if you're cheering for the other team, that is.

I've never felt so afraid to watch a hockey game in my life.

I guess it depends on what you definition of "best" is. Also, are you looking for the "best" hockey arena, or the "best" entertainment centre.

I love watching and playing in the old barns. I'd take the Windsor Arena or Yost Arena in Ann Arbor any day over these over commercialized bland entertainment centres like the JLC.

I've heard that a lot actually but never had any big problems. A bit if name calling, but nothing I don't expect going to a visitors barn. It's nowhere near as bad as Kelowna fans, who in my experiences are the biggest joke in the league by far. That's one arena I'd never go back to. Funny enough, they think they can give our fans the same treatment in our own building(and then complain when they aren't treated nicely).
