    Hahaha, this makes us rivals in 2 sports now Addi!!
    :D

    Haven't been there yet. Really hoping to make it out in the spring though!

    I'm actually a displaced fan. I'm currently living deep in Penguins territory (yes it is as terrible as it sounds) so I'm constantly getting blast from all the Pens fans, hahaha.

    While the new arenas are nice and more luxurious, there is something about the old arenas and the intimacy of them. I had season tickets to the old Spectrum for the Flyers as a kid, and it felt like you were sitting right over the ice in the 2nd level. When that place would get rockin in the playoffs, it definitely gave the Flyers a home ice advantage. (Heck, I think we lost every game at Joe Louis arena for almost 20 years to Detroit as the RedWings had a definite advantage at home). The new arena (built in 1996) had all of the luxury suites and club boxes, and it pushed back the 2nd level in a sense that you were farther away from the ice. It went from the intimate feel of the Spectrum to a more corporate feel in the new arena because the tickets priced out many middle class fans. We dropped our Season Tickets years ago as its worth it to buy a few games on StubHub during the season against teams like the Rangers, Pens, Blackhawks, and the Red Wings.
