I only have keys and a phone with me when I go to games and hold them in my hand and never have been asked to put them on a table. Understandable to put things on a table if one can't hold all of it at once.

Opening doors two hours earlier for everyone, instead of one hour before games may be an option without having to create "only" entrances. Teams may not want to pay their employees having to get there early. Opening more doors means needing more staff.

I can understand the desire to have a separate entrance or specific doors for STH. It will be interesting to see if safety trumps comfort, or if a happy medium can be reached.

1) Move it to an obscure corner exit, not located right next to where 75% of the fans enter.

2) Tell fans to smoke before you get in. I've never noticed anyone in the area for a pre-game smoke, but have notice several hundred fans waiting in long lines in crappy weather while two large doors go unused.

A few jerseys too.

From left:
replica, size xxl
Nash Canada, authentic, signed, 56
Nash 3rd replica, xxl
Mason authentic, size 60, JHM patch

Not looking for much. I have lost a lot of weight, so these don't even remotely fit anymore.

Hi,
Sabres fan coming in peace. I'm looking at going to the game on 1/25, but am a larger man (6'5", 350) so was wondering, what seats I should be looking for to accommodate my height and width.

Many thanks in advance!

The only place with wider seats and better legroom is Club level. That's my experience.

If you end up in the lower bowl the cup holders on the seats in front of you are removable..gives you a couple more inches of knee space..not much but something

Club seats are the only way to go. The new seats in the lower bowl are not big guy friendly at all. I'm 6' foot and I can't sit in them unless their glass seats or an aisle seat. Upper Bowl seats are not as bad and if you can get a aisle seat you should be good.

One other thing if you find you can't sit in the seat you have go to guest services and ask for a handicap seat.

Thanks for all info guys, more worried about being a human pretzel than anything.

St Louis and LA were a pain in terms of depth and my long legs, so always try to get some recon help.

I promise I won't be one of the obnoxious drunkards that I've heard make the trek down I-90-71. I even made friends with Leaf fans at the ACC

I would recommend buying a handicap area seat, to be honest. It's a lot more comfortable for taller people. If you find issues with that, then yes, going to customer service (right outside "The Blueline", the team merch store by main entrance) and they are usually very accommodating and helpful in any way possible.

If you're coming with a group, you could always look into buying a terrace table (4 seats, have to buy all 4).

Either way, enjoy your visit to our fine city!

I've got a pair of tickets for tonight's game, but it looks like I'm not going to be able to go.

Great seats in the upper deck, row K, right on the center line. Willing to part with the pair for $60. PM me if you're interested.

On the plus side, NWA had 4 lanes per set of double doors on the Front Street entrance. On the negative, they only had one ticket scanner for every two lanes...

Oh, and I guess security told Kevin he had to keep his shirt on...one step forward, two steps back...

So, Kevin's naked chest is a threat to security?

Talking to Kevin, sounds like it might have been a Pens fan that complained to security.

Pens fans aren't used to seeing someone so svelte and in possession of so many teeth.

Looking to sell my tickets to Monday's game vs. Tampa Bay if anyone is interested. They are in 206 Row P, but on a Monday vs Tampa you should be able to move pretty much anywhere in the Upper Bowl. Will sell the pair for $25 to anyone interested. Send me a PM if interested, can do PayPal and email the tickets from my account.

I was thinking about looking on stubhub for 2 tickets to the Buffalo game next week (got a promotion code or something for 100 dollars from xmas). I was thinking about getting some lower bowl seats and I've only ever sat in the upper deck. Are the seats closer to the ice "better" or is it better to be a bit higher up in the lower bowl so you can see the full ice better?

If you're not on the glass, I recommend row H or higher (so you can see OVER the glass)

Question for those more familiar with StubHub than I. Friday's game (a must-make for me due to the yearbook giveaway) is starting to spike upward in price bigtime. Do these type of big games (like Capitals' games) usually havea gameday or day before drop as people try to get whatever they can get or do they usually keep going up? I was hoping to buy on Friday as I get paid then and some unexpected expenses came up this pay.

they sometimes do...usually when you put tix on SH, you have a starting amount and then weekly, monthly, daily, they drop by a percentage you set...but with that...if ppl are snatching up the cheaper tix, you may never see a drop...its the gun you play with when dealing with SH
