Scottrade Center was just reviewed.

Kind of cool if you are traveling to different cities/arenas and want some info. Some short write-ups on numerous venues and the surrounding areas.

I find The Scott to be very average. Not fantastic, not terrible. Columbus has a great rink....

I agree about Columbus...great arena and surrounding area. I saw Team USA play Team Canada there in a warm up game before the last World Cup of Hockey. Very cool.

I like Scottrade, but it's not anything spectacular...but it's getting better with the statues being put up and stuff.

We need more banners. 8)

I think what's been growing in the parking garage on level 5 all season is making the Scottrade environment much more enjoyable. It's a tailgate party before the game and in-between each period. Everyone’s there talking Blues hockey and it just doesn't get much better. Unless I guess you want to sit in your seats and watch people catch parachutes in grocery baskets.

Inside, it's not bad...but the music selection could be much better and the video selections are pretty amateur. It feels like they’ve just got ‘someone’ running it instead of a professional.

Oh, and the opening video sucks this year.

The definition of average, although the food selections are getting better as the season continues...

i think all stadiums have gone down hill, as far as atmosphere and hockey friendly. now its all about flying a blimp, blue bear mascots, press and party boxes......i would rather watch the blues play outdoor in cahokia than at scottrade. baseball teams are going throwback and vintage like in their new stadiums, hockey needs to do the same. look at the edwards jones dome, ranked at the bottom of the nfl....why? because its like your watching the game inside of a nursing home.

That would be fantastic! The boys would have to watch out for bad bounces off the chain link though.
