Never mind. I was just asking a couple questions. I am a hockey fan in general. Thought I could get some helpful advice. Guess not.
We bust balls here. It's tradition.
Honestly, there aren't too many bad seats at the 'Trade. I enjoy sitting in the upper part of the lower bowl, or the lower part of the upper bowl. From those seats, you can see pretty much all the action on the ice with little to no obstruction. And compared to the rest of the league, Blues tickets are on the cheaper side, so you should be able to find some reasonably priced tickets.
I don't live in St. Lou, so I can't really help on the hotel side of things. Typically when I stay in/around St. Lou, I stay across the river on the Illinois side since it's usually closer to home for me.
