What is your favourite arena in the NHL right now?

And what NHL arena do you thinks is the most energetic and loud?

I've only ever been to one arena!! :(

But, from what I've seen on TV, I would have to say that Edmonton or Calgary are the best arenas to go to, and the loudest!!! :thumbsup:

Buffalo's seems fairly loud. I guess ill find out soon enough. Im going to the Sabres vs Penguins in buffalo on January 5th, Hopefully it will be a great game with crosby malkin and all the other great players on these two young and very talented teams.

But the loudest has to be the Rexall Place in Edmonton or the Bell Centre in Montreal.

My favourite's are ScotiaBank Place in Ottawa, Bell Centre in Montreal, HSBC in Buffalo, and GM Place in Vancouver.

I've heard that Chicago is the loudest when people show up but that hasn't happened in a season or too. Edmonton and Colorado as well as Montreal and Toronto (in the playoffs) are some of the arenas that seem the loudest to me.

Now old Chicago Stadium was loud. Amazing how much of a change it is from old barn to new, fancy building. Chicago Stadium used to routinely register between 124-130 decibles during the national anthem! Now that's stinking loud.

The Rexall Place in Edmonton, The Saddledome in Calgary, The HSBC Arena for Buffalo, and dare I say it, the RBC Center in North Carolina. Say what you will about the team and location, but those 'Canes fans are LOUD!!!

Also, the HP Pavillion, AKA "Shark Tank". The Bell Center can also get loud, and so does the Gaylord Entertainment Arena in Nashville. They don't sellout games, but if they did the building would probably move an inch when the Preds score.

I'll have to put in a word for the Reunion Arena as wll. Where the Dallas Stars used to play before they moved to their new building. Come playoff time I would always be cheering on the Oilers (my 2nd favourite team) since the Leafs were missing th playoffs at the time. Everytime they went into Dallas, I would always dread the Stars scoring a goal because once they got one in you could just feel the life being sucked out of you. It was something.

It's not like that now in their new building though. The American Airlines Arena rarely sells out these days. I mean, they're still loud, but it's not even close comapared to the Reunion Arena from about 1996-2000.

That life sucking moment was the A/C kicking in trying to keep the ice from turning into the world's largest slurpee.

True, their ice sucked.

Only Dallas could rule that rink.

Rexall place last summer was just unreal.

My favorite in the nhl, is montreal. In my opinion, no other arena has a better overall ambience.

I can only imagine how loud it would get there should they reach the finals this year.
