I don't think so. IMO people have no idea how bad these will really be for the $53 ticket holders. It's going to be so much worse than people are expecting.

It is possible that the people all the way up top in the last few rows will be very unhappy with the bridges. It could be terrible...but we really won't know for sure until October 2013.

The steel looks 90% done...looks like they are starting to put the concrete in for rows 1 and 2 on the side of the arena behind the benches. The new upper bowl is starting to come to life.

Thanks for the pic. With most of the steel in place you can definitely see the increased seat pitch of the upper bowl.

Thanks for the pics. Those front row seats above the suites may just be the best seats in the house.

From the pic, I think the bridges would impact rows as low as 9-10..just a rough estimate though..

I agree...that's why I moved all my seats there (and suggested everyone else try and do the same.) Planned my seating upgrades for the least few summers to put me in position to get in row 1 and 2. Looking forward to checking them out.

So what do I do when I'm bored at home and nothing is on TV? I create some very poor renderings of what my seats might look like in 2 years

I used the height of the level 9 suites and location of the West Balcony to create this image, which is taken from Section 208 Row 17. I think this is a pretty safe bet on what the view will be with the bridges. I would think the bottom of the bridge gets closer to the ice level as you move up every row -- so I'm afraid to think what a row 24 might see

Concrete Install

If you scroll to the left and right with the earthcam it looks like they started to place the concrete for the new seats on the upper bowl.

It's not a practical addition at all. It's a money grab, pure and simple. Such as shame.

The bridge is a distraction, it doesn't matter if it doesn't block the view of the ice at all. The fans on the bridge will be heckled to no end as well. Eventually nobody will want to be up there.

That is highly doubtful. The bridges are the piece de resistance of the 800 million dollar renovation.

And nothing anyone here says will change that. If you can't do anything better with your time at the game than heckle the people on the bridge, you should give your tickets up to someone who actually wants to watch professional ice hockey.

Will never forget the immortal chant from the blue seats......RED SEATS SUCK. One of the rasons they ditched the colorfo the goofy number system. Can "Bridgs suck" be far behind?

The bridges will be fine. What do you care what's going on up there? The action is below you.
