I like the steep slopes of the arena putting the fans very close to the action. Looks like a very intimate setting for a big arena.

Who cares what it looks like from outside, it is how it is configured on the inside that matters, and it is configured pretty well IMO. Very close to the action no matter were you sit. Great venue for both hockey and rock concerts, although I have never sat/stood in the nosebleed seats. 9/10.

I believe it is the largest NHL Arena.

I've sat in the club seats (the middle deck) good view but I found the atmosphere disapointing, I expected more passion. They weren't playing the Bruins though. Quite a few people wearing Nords shirts and I even saw a Leafs jersey.

Nice hotdogs though, toasted!

Really?? It is known that Montreal has the best atmosphere in the NHL. They sold out all of thier games at like 22K. Yes! The McCain hot dogs are amazing and the fries too.

If you want atmosphere, go to a playoff game. There're so many regular season games it makes many of them unimportant. :scouserd:
I remember the Stanley Cup Finals this year. The games in Edmonton - unbelievable !!! I would have loved to be there. My TV is connected to my stereo and I turned up the volume to get something of the atmosphere. The whole stadium singing the canadian anthem was impressing.
:eek2:

I really like the Bell. Huge but with out the unfriendly face of corporate suites, guess they're neatly tucked under the above tier.

Largest what in North America? If you mean "arena", then Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky has that beat with a capacity of 23,000.

Oh I know why I said that....
Because the Bell Center's hockey capacity is about 22 thousand.
I guess the basketball capacity is about 23k.
