i take whatever is cheapest. you can see the game great from virtually anywhere at the wachovia center... ive sat everywhere from the nosebleeds to club box to lower level near center ice, no complaints from any of those locations
It all depends on your preference. Some people like to sit in between the bluelines while some people like to sit behind the goals. Some like to be in the lower level as low as possible, some like to be in the upper rows in the lower level while others like the 2nd level.
Between Ticketmaster, eBay and Stubhub, you can get any seats that you could want from the last row in the building to luxury suites.
There's not a bad seat in the house, so enjoy the game whenever you go.
My game plan location is in the next to last row of Sec. 205 and I love my seat. It's up there, but I think the view is great. (Here's a view from my seat.) The first row of 204A should be pretty good.
