Thumbs up Coyotes new Glendale arena

This place is nice and deserves a better team. We went along tonight for the first time since they moved from the old America West arena they shared with the Suns downtown. 100% improvement imo. Great view from pretty much everywhere inside and nice comfortable seating. Shame the place wasnt even half full. Got to put a better product on the ice Mr Gretzky, if you want that place full. The game was a rather dull 1-1 tie with the Wild.

There were a few more fans than these pictures show. I just didnt take any more after the skate around.

I find it odd that Mr. Gretzky now owns the franchise that he scored the most goals and points against in his career. At least that is one record the Jets will always hold... that and the worst single-season record ever

Lee, Winnipeg will have NHL hockey once the lockout is over. There is no way I can see every current team still in their same location after this. Major changes are coming and Winnipeg is, as of now, the most desirable place to move a team. Even if it is the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nice arena, are the Suns moving there next season or staying at America West?

Suns are staying at AWA. They just revamped it by adding new shops, restaurants and a glass facade to the outside. AWA was never suited to hockey though. One end of the arena's upper level couldnt see the goal below. I also believe that the back up goalies had to sit in the tunnel as there wasnt space on the bench.
