I prefer Target Center assuming the arena upgrades to the ice surface meant we weren't dealing with choppy ice. I know 5 miles isn't a huge difference but Target Center is closer to every school within driving distance. I'd be even more annoyed if I still lived 4 miles from Target Center.

Xcel is superior in every way to Target Center. This move was a no brainer.

The only complaint I've had about the X is the food. The food was awful at the last regional.

It would have been nice to check out the new seat upgrades at the Target Center that were just installed.
I didn't hear too many complaints about the ice but the kick plates made the puck seem to gain speed off of them (super bouncy) and the glass on the one end had a lot of pucks deflect back out in front of the net. Goalie would go behind the net to play the puck and then have to scramble back when the puck kicked out front. (stanchions in the glass caused a lot of weird caroms)
I think the X has the same problem on the one end with the doors.
The HBNHC has it too although I've only seen a few SCSU players take advantage of it. Ring arounds high on the glass.

I liked playing at the Target Center, it made our conference unique, and I'd have loved to see what the Frozen Faceoff would've looked like in the remodeled TC.

Oh well, The X is cool too :)
