Quick ticket question...

I live in Seattle and I'm planning on flying down to see a friend in November when the Kings are in town. My question is in regards to the rows of seats in the lower bowl.

Am I correct in assuming that row 'A' is on the glass, 'B' is second off the glass and so on?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

You would be correct. In the lower bowl, I would suggest looking at tickets at row M or above. That will give you the best view over the top of the glass and avoid the "blind spots" of sitting in the lower bowl. Hope that helps!

They come with VIP in whatever the club is called downstairs these days. (The one where the visiting team comes out) But in reality, you are better off going in there and watching the game on TV, because you cant see crap.

Two of you have mentioned being halfway up. Any idea (roughly) of how many rows back I should try to be. 4? 8?

Thanks again for any/all input on this.

I think row M or higher is the best for the best view. (They start at A)

I have season tickets in section 206 Row B. Any section in the 200's will give you an excellent view. If you get tickets to the XO club, you get free food and drinks. That is also on the 2nd level.

You should not have too much of a problem getting tickets from the scalpers across the street from the Forum or from the McDonalds Ticket office.

The 300 level is also quite good, especially if you can snag somewhere in Row B. The only problem with row B, is the jerks who lean forward on the rail, taking away the view for everyone behind them. That said, you pay like 60% of what Row A pays when sitting in Row B. I'm in section 304, row B... best seats in the house for my tastes. Face value for the corners/behind the net is 41.75 roughly give or take a few bucks.

Just thought I'd post an alternative idea for ya

Actually, I had Row G Section 301 which is at center ice, third level which were pretty good too, now I have Row C 302 in the lower corner. Higher up in the corners get a bit too steep for my taste...just a cheaper alternative...
