What is it that looks so funny at Rexall Place?

I've never been able to figure it out.

If only your question wasn't so specific. :rolleyes:

Weird camera angle, upside-down rink. One of the few distinctive telecasts left in the league.

I've always thought the lighting looked more yellow at Rexall than in other rinks, and the corners a bit darker. Good news is, you may not have to put up with that too much longer, depending on what Edmonton city council decides today.

I hate the inside-the-dasher ads meant purely for the camera. They really are distracting to see that much yellow somewhere that it shouldn't be

the yellow ads on the outer side of the boards are an eyesore.

Them and the low angle of Detroit. And how the Islanders' camera is

That one has always irked me.

Yep---it's those blue & ornage uniforms.

Funny looking all right.

I've always thought that Edmonton had unique lighting in their rink that was different to any other. San Jose and Chicago are kind of darker as well...and the MSG has a unique feel to it as well when watching on TV.

"Good health to all, from Rexall!"

That's exactly what I was thinking too... Love that Remley...

That's exactly what it is. It throws people off.

So are those throwback uniforms, home or whatever.

Huh? The United Center keeps the house lights down, but the Shark Tank has been like oppressively bright every time I've seen it.

Well maybe the ice surface is brighter but the lighting in the crowd seems very dark compared to other rinks. It's just something I always notice. Like, in Calgary it's opposite.

I always thought the ice looked more "shiny" or "glossy" in Edmonton. Something with the lighting, I'm sure.
