Thanks for the kind offer. If I get out that way I'll take you up in it. That's the only one I nevever attended a game at and would love to. I've been to many football and hockey games and I can say Hockey fans are the best by far.

Try Honda Center this year (or whenever they play!) for a Kings game. It will make you appreciate Staples even more.

It's not that Honda is bad, it's just that Staples is so much better.

Wells Fargo Center
Verizon Center

I really like both. The atmosphere in both has been great. I do love the convenience of having a metro stop right outside the Verizon center.

1. MSG
2. Nassau Coliseum
3. Prudential Center
4. TD Garden
5. Wells Fargo Center (was for basketball though)
6. Citizens Bank Park (does this count? lol)

Leaving out MSG since I'd be biased, Prudential Center was the nicest. You could tell it was an arena built for hockey which I love. The worst was easily Nassau though the sight lines there are awesome. Everything else is just terrible though.

If we're including future NHL arenas, I've also been to Barclays Center.

Whatever Buffalo is calling itself nowadays (First Niagara? right?)

Been to nearly every OHL barn, minus Eerie, Plymouth, Saginaw.

Would love to go to more in the States.

Watched a game at this place. Rink is in a terrible area. There is some hip hop bar across the rink if you wish to venture in, called ultra lounge or something. May be shut down do to shootings. If you wish to grab a cab after the game be ready to stand in a long line at -30 and listen to riggers talk about sick times in ft Mac. Other option is stand outside in said -30 weather and try to squeeze into a transit that is tiny and takes ages between trains. On the plus they have some attempt at a VIP area underneath where you will find some of the wrinklirest suits in the city sipping on plastic cups. All in all not very good.

The incredible Bird Arena at Ohio University for one.
The Pittsburgh Civic Arena/Mellon Arena.
Consol Energy Center.
Joe Lewis Arena.
A smattering of minor league and college arenas.

I recently moved to Columbus and would love to catch a game at Nationwide. Hopefully there's a league again soon.
