Heres a slightly off-topic question for the resident "loungers":

 

A poster above mentioned the notorious empty black seats.  Are these seats empty because everyone is up in the lounge or because they are too expensive and went unpurchased?

 

Just curious since I myself have never had one of those seats or been in any of the lounges.

A lot of people just watch the game from the lounges, and don't even sit in their seats.

I see more empty black seats then people in the lounges though, so its a combo of both but more so cause they are hanging by the dessert station, hehe

I been in the Ice lounge twice and its not too bad, there is so-so sushi and a good carving station and if fresh the cookies are awesome. 

I do think it could use a slight update but not a full remodel.

I've never been to either, but looking at the photos, it seems as if a renovation or redecorating would be pretty easy and cheap. The way things are built and cladded seem similar to what they do in retail, where materials can be swapped in and removed as needed. I'm not sure if any bigger renovation or wall demolition, etc., would be made, but things like new materials/cladding, different lighting design, and different carpeting can really transform a space. From what I can tell in picture, the way they built it allows for that process to be sort of easy. Things like lighting and different furniture can go a long way.

 

100% accurate

 

With a modest budget for a professional sports team, both of the lounges could absolutely be transformed into something much nicer than what they currently are.

 

I would love to be able to design those spaces.

Must be a terrible hockey season for the Devils, yes I have been following them and they stink, thanks Lou and here we are discussing the Fire and Ice lounge.

 

How about we talk about forcing Lou to retire along with Brodeur and firing DeBoer does that make sense?

From the ice lounge not really. There are always a about ten to twenty people in the lounge at any time during play and a few more watching from the credenzas right above the seats.


Long story short, the black seats just aren't being sold.

Well if that's the case, then I can definitely understand why he would think that.  One of my flaws is that I try very hard to be as objective as possible.  I always, and I mean ALWAYS try to see both sides of every argument.  So in turn it seems like I argue a little for both sides.  A perfect example would my opinions of Pete.

 

I have argued that he's a good coach because he has a good system in place and that his players like playing for him.

I have also argued that he should be fired because of his lineup decisions.

I haven't been to the lounges in a couple years but I don't know what everyone wants out of that section in terms of modernization, chargers for your phones I suppose?  They have comfy seats, a lot of room in the lounge and private bathrooms.  If anything they probably should upgrade their food options a bit, the only non-fast food/snacks I remember from there was one carving station and a sushi stand that frequently ran out of stuff in the first period.  You would think the food in that section would be a little more upscale (not that I don't like fast food but I can get that anytime with my f/b card) or at least have stuff you can't get at normal stands, but I'm sure Jeffy's financial situation had something to do with that too since the food quality there used to be a little higher.

 

Then again with Jeff they at least had real cookies/brownies and big ice cream bowls in the ice cream suite last year.  This year they scaled back to dime-size cookies/brownies and prepackaged Rita's ice cream cups.

I just went on Ticketmaster and counted the number of clubs available...approximately 200 (close to 10% of the supposed 2200 capacity there).  But that isn't accounting for the number of broker seats that go unsold on a nightly basis...and a Saturday night game will be a little more in demand than weekday games too.

So anyway, what are the rules to the fire and ice lounges?  I always see someone checking tickets going in and never bothered going in.  Are the lounges only open to certain tickets holders during the game?  Are they open to anyone?  How is the food?  I have tickets in section 3, row 17.

They are only open to people who sit in the club seat section. It's free unlimited food and soft drinks along with private bathrooms.
