Center section 200s are the best value in MSG. Center section 300s are a good value too. If I was cost conscious club seating is an absolute waste. If I had to be close behind the goal 100s are a decent value.

If your a Debbie fan I suggest staying away from the 400's.

Dont sit anywhere behind the goals, whether you are right behind the glass or the last row of the mezzanine. Those seats suck and you cant see anything. Only sit on the sides of the ice.

I like any corner in the 300's. You can see the net closest to you really well, and have a good view up the ice as well.

What corners are you talkin bout? Just curious, i have seats in 349 for the first time this year and they are truly horrible. i have to lean over everytime the puck comes to the net closest to us and i miss alot of close shots and play behind the net.

i used to say "there's not a bad seat in the house" but after buying these seats, im changing my tune.

Hmm maybe it depends on the row. I've sat in 349,342,317,314 never had a bad experience. I remember leaning over a bit in 342 (row H) now that I think about it, but I'm usually not sitting still anyway. Row H is just one or two steps up though.

I peronally....

liked my seats in 343 because you saw so much without any obstruction. It's great sitting at the glass, but you miss a lot of the play. Center ice, up a bit (200s) is actually pretty good, but you want to be somewhere after row E or so so you're view's not obstructed when those people cannot find their seats.

On the subject of pricing and getting ripped off at the garden, how much does the food usually go for?

Thanks!

Il...

I had seats in 343 for years...great seats. Was in row G, and it was high enough not to be bothered. You can see the play develop beautifully from up there and miss very little. The ideal seat may be around the faceoff circles in the corners, or somewhere thereabouts.

$7.25 for a beer
$4.50 for a large soda
$5.50 for a footlong hot dog (I think)

i sit up in 338 and i have no problems with the view at all.. sat in 308 last season and that was good aswell.. the only seats i've ever sat in where i could'nt see the play at the net was the 415/414's right behind the net.. otherwise i can see everything..

I have 329 which is in the corner watching the Rangers shoot twice. I love them.

MSG's sightlines aren't the best. As many have said, the corners in the 200's or 300's offer good views. Try not to get the first row of the 300's as you'll be looking through all the people walking around the walkway all game. Last couple rows in the 400's are pretty obstructed.

It depends on the section. Before I got season tickets I sat just about everywhere in the 300s and 400s and I can't recall ever having a problem sitting up in the 400s. Heck, where the TV announcers sit in the booth is right around row d in the 400s.

It's been a long time since I've sat there but I think row D will be fine. Those sections are small but I think D will be somewhere in the middle of the section, which should be fine. I remember sitting in the section next to the broadcast booth (I think it's 405) and the overhang was kind of in the way. The corners of the rink are obstructed from almost every seat in the house.
