Arenas

There's a thread on the general NHL board asking about your favorite and least favorite NHL arenas. That got me wondering, which arenas (if any) have Nashville fans visited? It took me a few minutes to come up with my list, and I was a little surprised at how many arenas I've been to and seen a game.

Here's my list:

Nashville, St. Louis, Columbus, Chicago, Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Washington, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York (Rangers), Toronto, Ottawa, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Anaheim.

I believe the only other Hockey venue I've been to was the old Chicago Stadium...but it wasn't for a Hockey game...man what an atmosphere...Jordan in his prime...it truly was the loudest arena in the league

I went to Chicago Stadium when I was a kid.....man, that place was amazing. The United Center just can't compare.

Sadly, I never got to make it to a game at the Gardens. About the best thing I can say for the Air Canada Center is that they have a brewpub built into the main concourse.

I've been to hockey's heaven. You may or may not have heard of it, Centennial Sportsplex. Not only have I been there, I've played there. Definitely my lifes greatest accomplishment thus far.

You've not played hockey until you've played at the old municpal auditorium, small slushey rink or even worse the old ice centenial, coils warped so bad they were coming out of the floor. You know what I hate about the sportsplex though, is the bleacher wall, where they've concreted in the dashers on the side with the bleachers keeping the boards from giving at all, so when you're hit on that wall, it's like being checked into concrete.

No, the worst part about municpal auditorium are the 6:00 AM game right after an event that required the ice to be removed or covered..You'd get out on the ice and the fog would be so bad, that you couldn't see from one end of the ice to the other...

Close to mine. I have been to Nashville, obviously, and Pittsburgh numerous times. But many, many minor league arenas...thanks to the Knights and some good ole road trips.

Agreed. My dad was the equipment manager the last 2 years of the Knights, and I worked for the Nighthakws their one season here. Did some work as the Shoney Bear for them as well during games. Funny story, the Nighthawks mascot quit because I was upstaging him.
