Is the visibility fine?

I am obviously a pens fan going down to the Joe, hoping to have a great time!

Hope for a good game, good luck!

The Joe may not be the nicest arena but there really isn't a bad seat in the joint.

Honestly, any seat in Joe isn't bad, even the nose bleeders, which aren't really nose bleeders cause the Joe doesn't have level after level stacked on one another.

Sight lines at the Joe are really good. As previous posters have stated, there really aren't any bad seats.

Higher is better because you can see all the action.

I'm sitting in section 211.

Heaton is correct, every seat in the joe is good. The "corner" sections up high (where you are sitting) have billboards hanging from the ceiling but they don't block your sight of the ice or scoreboard by any means. I think I had literally the worst seats in the building for a playoff game against san jose in '07 and I could still see the action just fine.

I got a single ticket for sec 208 row 16 for game 5 and 207 row 7 for game 7. I've never gone to game by myself but I don't care, I just want to be in the building if they can win the cup at home.

Ad nauseum: There is no such thing as a "bad" seat in the Joe. Unless youre over 300lbs, then the seats are entirely too small.

Its pretty high up there. Game 5 vs the ducks I snuck down into the lower bowl at third period. Unfortunately, what may look like empty seats are probably filled by some dumbass rich people. Thats what happened to me. Lady was gone like 5 minutes end of 2nd and entire intermission. What a dumbass. eventually got a seat my second try

Yeah, even the top row are decent seats, a lot better than Mellon Arena, which I remember from the many times I've been there. Why build an upper deck if it going to obstruct full vision for about a quarter of the seats directly below it?

I've gone to playoff games alone before and had the best time ever. When you are around other fans who are passionate as you are, you'll have a blast no matter what.

I actually like going to games by myself because I don't have to cater to the other person next to me

JLA is like old arenas. The upper bowl is only 10 feet higher than the lower bowl, so front row upper bowl tickets are like lower bowl seats in most arenas.

There are no bad sightlines. A great arena and the banners give the place a lot of history. We were always in the line for alcohol before the puck dropped, so we missed all the opening ceremonies (sorry to Shoalzie too for making him late). They look awesome, on TV.

One thing that is DEFINITELY not awesome, is the lineups for the washroom. The reason many seats are empty in the lower bowl at the start of the second and third periods is everyone is still on the concourse in line for the washroom.

Do yourself a favour, if you have to go, make a fast break at the end of the period to the nearest trough. Beat the line, and make it back in time for the game. And that's right, I said trough.

Love the trough. Reminds me of the Old Winnipeg Arena. Very excited for tonight's game. No Datsyuk tonight.

Last regular season game I went to, I left 2 minutes left in the 2nd period thinking I was going to beat the long line but boy was I wrong BUT, I was back for the 3rd period. But I'm a girl so I have to deal with the slow ***** who don't get that when your next for the stall, unbutton your pants there!

I have seen the men's line longer than the women's line before tho.
