Ahh yes, read that wrong. Still wish we had cup holders up there though!

I'm not sure why they can't fit cup holders in all rows. the ones in row 1 are between the seats (in front of the armrests) and don't appear to extend much (if at all) out beyond the seats.

Did they lower the seating capacity? Also, I went to a Knicks game just after christmas, it's very complicated getting to your seats as it seems if I went up the wrong escalator/staircase tower, I just couldn't get to the section of the arena that my seat was in.

Yeah, for this year, the capacity is 17,200 for hockey. I have no idea what it is for basketball. And I haven't noticed anything different about getting to the seat..

I'm not sure about the lower bowl, but in the upper bowl that's not a problem anymore -- it goes all the way around. In fact, I believe the lower bowl goes all the way around, too, but don't quote me on that.

Wow, that's pretty smart. And a good thing. I can make it down and back from my seats during a TV timeout. And with a sixty something prostate, that's damn important.

they barely have enough room if you want to stand to let someone walk through the row. Cup holders would just cause more stuff to get spilled.

the lights are a higher color temperature but still too low and slightly yellow. This new arena feels like every other arena in the country now. It's only saving grace is it's name. Of all these multi tiered cookie cutter buildings I like the Bell Centre. The very steep seating make it a great environment, or maybe it's the French Canadian women, I don't know.

Caught my first game of the year last night. I sat with my buddy in his seats in 226 and I gotta say, I expected it to be a tighter fit based on what I've read on here. While I wouldn't call the rows roomy or anything, my knees weren't hitting the seat in front of me even as I leaned forward a bit. And I found the actual seat to be really comfortable.

Biggest adjustment for me was getting used to the brightness of the lights. When they came on for the first time, it felt like I was staring directly into the sun.

And the row 3 seats are money.

I like the brighter lights on the ice. Easier for an old geezer like me to see the puck! And yes, Row 3 is money. I didn't pay for TV but I've got it!

Has anyone sat in the 400s this year? About to pull the trigger on a pair of seats in section 419 but it says its limited view. If anyone has any experience sitting in the 400s, or specifically in 419, please let me know! Thanks

It's all about the row number man. Stay away from the back 2 rows, and get as close to row 1 as possible

I get that, but the cup holders I saw in row 1 did not extend beyond the front of the seats...so they don't obstruct people walking. I'll have to take another look.

I am in section 418.
If you are not in the first 4 rows of 418, 419 I wouldn't do it unless it's a really good deal.
The 5th row is sketchy. In rows 6 and 7 (back two) you cannot even see the opposite goal.

If you get a real good deal though you can always buy them and then walk around a find a spot to stand in the Upper Balcony which is right above you. Besides the bar stool seats, there are a few other nooks and crannies up there where you can stand and watch.

The arena is beautiful now. Just as it is. It really is a different experience now. For the better.

REALLY wish the stupid bridges weren't being put in.

Sitting by the glass is a cool experience, but you can't see jack **** on the other end.

All of those are good choices. How do you have these options?

Obviously "better deal" is very subjective but having been to my first game of the season last night, it's fresh in my mind that you can really feel the difference in proximity to the ice just moving up from row 6 to row 3. If the $79 seats are in any way a stretch for you, I'd go with row 15. But if you can comfortably afford the extra $1000 or so per seat, I think the upgrade is definitely worth it.

Gotcha. I'd say 224, Row 3. But the one wild card for me is the areas in front of the center ice 200s (222-224.) Is it all press and cameras? And how much of a distraction, if any, is it for those who sit directly behind it?

In front of 224, you have a row of cameras. There's no first and second row with the TVs. I don't find them distracting at all, others may have a different opinion.
