Worst Lit Arena in the League?

While watching the Otttawa Tampa game, I just thought it would be interesting to see everyones opinion on which arena's lighting looks the worst on tv?

Ill go with MSG. On tv, it looks like they use bedroom lights to light the arena. In St. Petes, looks like the ice is painted black.

MSG:



United center:



St. Petes:



Rexall:



Bell Center:

Tampa Bay, I swear, the players have multiple shadows, it's really weird.

I have a hard time watching a game at the Pete on TV. It's just so dark that it's uncomfortable for my eyes. MSG, Rexall, the UC, and HP are close behind.

Madison Square Garden is the first one that came to mind for me, games look awful on TV.

Islanders' home games always look pretty bad.

Nassau is as bad as MSG, or at least it used to be:

Actually, Madison Square Garden is how all arenas should be lit. The lighting is on the ice and not on all the crap going on in the stands or the stupid fireworks shows in between icing calls.

I believe most of our complaints about MSG is that the ice is dimly lit. I'm sure we could all care less about the stands. Same with St. Pete Times.

I voted for St. Pete because I have to look at it more often than MSG.

I think the Thrashers should wear miners helmets when they play at Tampa for improved lighting.

Watching the Knicks would be painful in any lighting.

Any of those Midwest or Southern American team arenas. I'm talking about teams like Atlanta, Nashville, Tampa Bay, etc.

MSG. It looks like the players are hiding in the shadows.

MSG is probably the worst. On TV it's either way too dark or there are blinding hotspots on the TV that completely swallow the puck if the exposure on the camera is setup improperly. It just doesn't seem very evenly lit.

Rexal lace has a bit of a problem with it being lit unevenly too, just not as bad...

ive been to one game at msg and hated every second of it. The ice looks yellow from wherever you sit. Unless all the Rangers piss themselves before the game starts, the ice shouldnt look the way it does on TV or in person.

I find games in Pheonix terrible to watch on TV. Maybe it's just shoddy equipment but the feed/lighting/everything seems very poor.

St.Pete Times

Not only is the stadium poorly lit, it's a filthy arena for one that is rather new.
