I think MSG looks much better on TV since the renovations. I don't think its poorly lit but is does look different than some other rinks. That's not a bad thing. Over the last 20 years, alot of the buildings have become cookie cutter, but MSG still has some distinguishable traits.

It's a famous arena, but it's also a dump. Kinda similar to Joe Louis.

You know the entire lower bowl is just as nice as any other arena and that it's currently being renovated?

Completely agree coming from a Rangers fan. It is about time that they are renovating the place. It wont be such a sore eye after the next 2 years when they complete it.

To piss opposing teams fans off....... why was Torts hired? To piss other teams fans off.

According to HFBoards, plan is working great.

Well I'm pretty sure the Prudential Center has an actual ceiling above that considering I've never been rained on during a game.

Okay.. what does that have to do with anything? What you're talking about is a roof.

I'm not sure what your point is either then. I'm pretty sure what's above your head at the Prudential Center isn't deterring anything on the ice unlike the lighting issues at the Garden

I think the lighting is fine. What bothers me is how the camera is set up for TV viewers. I had the same issues with Florida's stadium during the first round. It makes you feel like watching from farther back.

The Rangers were an awful home team for the better part of the last decade. Funny how all this crap comes out now that they actually have a good team and win most of their home games.

thatd be a clever little observation if i had mentioned the coliseum prior to being called out for being an islander fan...but i didnt. Ranger fans here have agreed that the arena, prior to its ongoing renovations, has seats where your view is less than desirable. So bc the team i ROOT for plays at the coliseum, i must never go to other arenas...ever.
But hey, if you think im here to talk up the 40yr old, worst arena in hockey, thats cool.

This!

Not trying to be a homer here--there are plenty of things that could be renovated about MSG, but I like the lighting. It adds a fun, game night--big event atmosphere to it. I wouldn't change that tbh.

People can hate on MSG all they want and that is fair, but I love watching games there.

ETA: Frickin' cup holders would be nice! I always have to choose between a beer and clapping. You can probably guess what wins out, lol, but I shouldn't have to choose!

slowclap

But you forgot the part about the lighting being intentionally dimmed to take the focus off of Lundqvist's illegal pads that NO ONE NOTICES EXCEPT FOR US SMART PEOPLESS!!1!

I don't see how the bad lighting would only affect one goalie? Surely Lundqvist would be affected just as much or would he be used to it so immune?

Then why do the stands fill half the picture? Not to mention that you don't see the ice very well either.
