The upstairs kinda sucks to me. The very top sections are so steep and the seats have less room than the ones downstairs.

Other than that it was awesome.


Um.....what exactly do you expect? They are the cheapest seats in the house for a reason.

So excited - just got back and the place looks great! I live (or soon will) in Bergen County, and we are trying to figure out if there is any decent public transit options, and if there is any parking that will be available to non-STHs. There is a color-coded map on the Devils website, but no explanation of what the colors mean. Anyone know? Oh, and anyone think the seats are pretty narrow? Can't wait for opening night!

It was what I expected but they are much higher than the last row at CAA. The last row in the mezzanine level felt like the last row in CAA.

Yea I felt the same about the upper level, especially after they said the last row here will be closer to the rink than the last row at CAA and the sightlines all around are going to be better. I didn't really notice that at all, but the rest of the place is so nice that I don't really care.

Today was lots of fun. Got a lot of autographs.

BC you don't know the diff between stove top and a toilet :noclue:

Drove from Denville...took about 50 minutes
Drove home to Roselle Park... took about 30 minutes

Not so bad...I'd add 15-20 minutes for traffic during the week either way



Can you do a test run from Oxford,PA and let me know how long it will take

The steepness of the seats gives you a closer feel to the ice. Think MOntreal bell centre, I think its pretty cool, Puts you on top of the ice and more compact inside the arena... though I'm in the club seats.... ;)

Did anyone else feel as if this arena was a little TOO fancy?

I don't know if it was the carpeting, fancy interior or what, it just kinda felt like I was walking through a hotel rather than a sporting venue.

But I do reside in sports arenas such as Shea, MSG and formerly Continental, so maybe I'm just used to crap.

Ha I actually said the same thing to my buddy I went with. I used to have a weekend plan for the Trenton Titans, and I remember that place was awesome. When you're walking around the concourse it felt much more like a hotel, especially because our seats were up top by the suites, so everything was real nice, but once the game started and we were in our seats, it didn't really take away from the atmosphere.

It seems so nice because people in the New York area are just used to crap. The newest of that bunch of stadiums is Continental. Frightening, right?

The only people who considered us the laughingstock of the league were the people who think attendance is of utmost importance because their teams aren't good enough to win Stanley Cups.
