masterofhockeyknowledge has a little shameless behaviour in the past

I didn't really enjoy the Winnepeg Arena because the seats were uncomfortable and dusty. Also it was an old fashioned like building so overall I didn't enjoy it. I've been to it twice; once against the Canucks in the 93 playoffs and once against the Red Wings in 1993. I lived in Winnepeg for six months so that's why I visited a couple of games at the Winnepeg Arena.
