A Closer Look At: Sidney Crosby

OK, I need to get something out of the way.  I’m a Sidney Crosby hater.  Well not really, but he is the Captain of the Philadelphia Flyers inter-state rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins.  I respect everything that he has done and am impressed by it, but I can’t help it, every time I look at Sidney Crosby I see this:

Around the Arena: Ice Rink Design

By:
Joe Louis Ice Rink

While watching the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. the Colorado avalanche game the other day, I began to think about many interesting aspects of the design of the modern day ice rink that were affecting the game. Much of this stemmed from the crazy happenings of overtime. As long as I can remember, I have never seen that much 3 vs. 3 playing time in a single game. It was exciting to say the least and even Matt Duchene said as such during his post-game interview. I would have to agree with his comments about the potential to end games before going to the shootout with 3 vs. 3 playing time instead of the current 4 vs. 4 and hopefully the league looks more closely at the excitement that was the 3 vs. 3 overtime of this game. Looking beyond the fact that overtime in this game was exciting because of 3 vs. 3 playing time, the modern day ice rink design has made overtime and the game in general more exciting. Or more correctly, overtime and the entirety of the game has taken advantage of some current  ice rink design and changed other aspects to make the game more exciting. This can be attributed to ice rink size, bench location, less deep nets, farther apart faceoff hashmarks, and a wider trapezoid of play for the goalies.

WOAH WOAH WOAH, put down the pitchforks and torches! I know I may have struck a nerve (I’m looking at you, San Jose Sharks fans), but hear me out. In the 97 years that the NHL has been around, there have been many legendary teams. However only few get the elusive status of “Dynasty Team”.

Around the Arena: Seating Preference

By:
Bench Seats. Photo by: predators.nhl.com

What does it really mean to have the best seats for the game? For every person you ask you are likely to get a different answer. Every person has a seating preference at the game. Some seating preferences are more vague such as the 100 level, and some can be as specific as 200 level section 5 row 1. Then there are some that are just sad, everybody has that friend that says “my favorite spot to watch the game is on my couch”, of course with some of the new camera angles used by Rogers this year maybe that isn’t as sad as it used to be. Check out Spencer’s article on these new camera views here. For me seating preference is a dilemma. I can never truly decide where is best. That is largely due to being spoiled by having the Joe Louis Arena, often cited as the best arena to view hockey in with not a single bad seat, as my closest arena to watch the game. However even for those of you that don’t get the amazing sight-lines of The Joe, here is some food for thought:
