I sit on the visitor's side but I have one of the best seats in the house - center ice, above the glass, so there's nothing but air between me and most of the play.

BUT.. in year 1, I DID sit behind the penalty glass once, and WOW... it was absolutely brutal. You're trying to watch the game behind 2-3 panes of scuffed up glass with the view being distorted depending on what angles you're looking through.

Actually in year 1 I almost bought seasons and initially I wanted to be RIGHT behind our bench. Wisdom clicked in at the last moment, reminding me I'd be behind a coaching staff that was standing the whole time, AND watching the entire game through glass.

So now, I'm right next to a different team every week and get to see our guy's faces across the ice instead of the backs of their heads. Best seat in the house

Heck, if the Dogs are going back to traditional hockey (ie: organist), lets lose the glass entirely - Go back to chain fencing around the sides In the movie The Rocket I think the old time rinks with fencing instead of glass looked amazing Of course, not so great if you're behind the fence and need to watch the play on an angle down the ice. Only good straight-forward.

I'm stuck with one of the seats on the penalty box side. I basically watch the screens when the play is at the other end of the ice. But I'd rather have half the ice through a brick wall than have the nets to look through -- some get used to them and can see alright, I'm just not one of them. I sure wish I was, as someone who always preferred high corners, it's changed how I watch the game and I've never seen it as well. High side (between the top of the circles to avoid netting) is my preferred spot now, but when I moved here, nothing like that was available.

I hope the new arena design recognizes the end seats have become harder to sell and put more rows on the side, less on the ends, like Barrie. There's about 17 rows on one side (less on the other because of luxury boxes, but still 10-12) and 6 or 7 on the ends. That's a big part of the attendance success there IMO.

Personally I'm not a big fan of those rinks that have just walls at the ends, and the seating in the middle. It makes it look so small-league Kiwanis'y. Instead of a thicker twine with more space between it, I'd switch to a finer mesh. Something with really thin material that is more sheer.

Barrie has a few rows of seats on the end, it actually looks pretty good. But by putting more seats on the sides, they get the top seats higher and steeper (that's where I sit when I'm in Barrie, view is amazing!) There's a restaurant at one end and a club lounge above it, so it doesn't look unfinished, it's glassed in areas as opposed to solid walls. The other end has a glass protected wheelchair area (before the nets, the glass was their protection). It looks pretty good, actually, I think it's a lot better than the sea of empty seats I saw in Oshawa last night. 4,000-plus in a 5,300 seat arena, but the one end was basically empty above the glass line.

I find it really doesn't matter for me...any kind of net makes the seats a no-go. But I agree totally with you! Your suggestion is what I have said for years. It'd be more like a screen door than a chain-link fence, and I think most people find a screen door easier to see through of those two options. I'd rather we go back to the wood sticks and take the nets down -- a little slower shot and a little better view! I know it won't happen, but it's just so frustrating when you go up to a box office, there's thousands of seats available, but I can't see anything from any of them.
