Montreal and Islanders are complete sh!tholes while I'm surprised how underwhelming Minnesota and Dallas are considering how new their arenas are.  I also think Detroit should be higher on the list while Boston should be lower.

A knock on the Rags locker is their big honking ass logo in the middle which of course you're not supposed to step on but its so honking ass big it gives you little room.

It's plain, but very well done; I love our lighting cove.

 

I'm surprised how crappy Minnesota, Montreal, Chicago, Boston, and Dallas are. Rangers' room looks smaller than a $1700/month Manhattan studio apartment, but still, I'll say it, nicely done after the renovation.

 

Buffalo, Vancouver, LA, and Pittsburgh are all super nice. Tampa's could've been higher ranked, even if the ceilings seem a bit low, and Ottawa's too.

 

I feel bad for the Islanders. Don't underestimate the impact architecture, design, and the built environment around you have on how well/average you do your work, whether it's an office job or playing hockey. Driving into Nassau Coliseum and then setting up before the game in that locker room doesn't really get you in the right mindset for a game, as superficial as it sounds. The move to Barclays will do them a mountain of good, and it should've happened a year ago.

I am between Pittsburgh and Carolina for the nicest IMO.

 

The Rags are lucky this was done after the renovation.  Before it theirs was not too far off from being amongst the bottom dwellers on that list.

Here's a better view of the Devils' locker room. The photo used in the article is from 2010, while a small change was made prior to the 2011 season. Instead of some cheeky saying on the soffit like "Loyalty, Commitment, Hard Work", it seems like Lou and the Devils chose another route: remind your players of your team's glory. We are the best team in the area the past 20 years and they should be reminded of that everytime they step out onto the ice.

Some of those Home and Road playoff records have been broken since I believe.

 

Its one of the better locker rooms but not really architecturally interesting or striking.  It does look to be one of, if not, the biggest locker rooms on the list though.

yea the devils locker room looks to be quite large which must be nice, while many of the others such as philly, rags and isles look like they are tight and cramped

While some of the author's comments are lame, he is right about the Florida one.  What tradition are they preserving?  From what I hear they still celebrate their one finals run (where they got swept) 19 years later.

where do you see that the Devils have the second highest rated locker room?? they're not in the top 5 in this article, they're in the second "tier" of locker rooms.. so like slightly above average

Celebrating being a footnote? Sounds like a team we know...

Devils' locker room looks pretty...huge.

 

Zubrus must have some pretty powerful speakers to be able to blast music throughout that whole place.
