9. Detroit (Little Caesars Arena): 8.14
Atmosphere: 7.15 (23rd)
Sight lines: 8.81 (14th)
Food options: 8.49 (1st)
Convenience: 7.44 (19th)
Location: 7.82 (16th)
Appearance: 9.05 (5th)
Unique touches: 8.18 (8th)

“While many fans seemingly entered a stage of mourning when the team left the Joe, I was stoked. The LCA is a state-of-the-art entertainment venue and a great for children, adults (bars and drink options), and those needing accessibility options to access and experience the game. I’ve been to over 40 arenas and stadiums in pro sports and the LCA and Truist Park (Atlanta Braves) rank above the rest on this all-around criteria.”

“Replacing the atmosphere of The Joe is hard, but I think the LCA is on its way to getting to that point once the Red Wings develop a better team that will draw the crowds.”

more ($$$) on the LCA and other rinks too, first was Vegas and 2nd went to Montreal...

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
