So imagine you have a a major league hockey team in the biggest market in the United States, one of the stalwarts of the league, and you're having them play in an arena. What would that arena look like?
MSG is simply the second worst (so long as the Isles are still at Nassau). There's no other way to put it.
Consider that to build MSG 4: Even MSGier, they had to knock down a grand monument to architecture of a train station, something which people are still trying to reverse.
Consider that MSG is known far more for concerts and the WWF than for the Rangers or Knicks.
Consider that, because of it's concert hall-ness, it still has that odd ovular shape that makes every Rangers game look like it's taking place in front of temporary bleachers in a convention center.
Consider that the lighting is borked.
Consider that it took them four tries to get an arena even this half-baked.
Consider that, despite the name, it's not even at Madison Square!
Oh, and the ice sucks and changed that game last night.
In conclusion, Madison Square Garden is awful and Rangers fans should feel awful that they like the place.
*Disclaimer: I have never been to Madison Square Garden, and am really just ranting after last night.
