As the wife of a hockey fanatic I have spent many hours of over thirty years of marriage in hockey arenas. I can assure you that this is one of the better ones.

We were on the club level section 1, on a corner. The view was very good. Only complaint might be that the seats are a little tight. Could have used an additional inch or so. Our seat attendant was polite and respectful.

I thought the food options to be very good! Yes, prices are on the high side but not unreasonably so. I had the chicken nachos from the Mexican stand and they were excellent. Son had the torta from the same place and enjoyed it. Then hubby and son split a corned beef sandwich from one of the carving stands. This was also very good.

We paid a lot to park right across the street so we will look for some deals before we go again.

We watched the Stars play the Wild the other night. Our seats were on club level, section 8. The club level was excellent and highly recommended with some great food and drink options. Parking was close although somewhat expensive. Signage within the arena could be better...it was our first time there and I had to ask someone how to get to our seats. Overall though, a great venue for watching hockey.

Nice huge arena. Enjoyed the food selections. The hockey game of course was exciting. Parking across the stadium was easy and cops helping with the traffic was appreciated. The only complaint is the entertainment on the big screen. They need to take some pointers from the St. Louis Blues on that aspect.
