If neither upper end can see the ice that blows, and I would think that would also suck for Bball.
I think with the way it's set up you get most or all ice in the existing seats, with some areas heads in the way upstairs, some perfectly clear......but just doing the outline in my head, moving the rink center kills a TON of seats. The steep pitch if the upper section I heard from, second hand, and it seems it might be dangerous for the elderly or drunken Ranger fans getting their arses kicked.

Sadly the view from MSG is way better.
I sat in the 200's section it was extremely steep and our view was definitely obstructed when people leaned forward...I can't imagine that would be the case for basketball however since the court is much shorter.

OMG, it's steep. What are we gonna do???

Lots of nitpicking from people on the whole BC thing. It was one game and like other arenas over time you find the section you like to sit in the best. But, but, but...

Let it play itself out for REAL over time and see what the reaction is from those that attend. For the NVMC crowd, they are never going to be happy for a zillion reasons.

So I hope any news about ownership gets posted in a untainted thread.
