Below you will find a video of the Rockets coming onto the ice for warmup directly in the path of the T-Birds warmup. Can you see a potential disaster here? If the Rockets have to skate the length of the ice to get to there end of the rink, why wouldn't the visiting team go out first - safely - before the T-Birds come out for the warmup? All it takes is one taunt from either side...and it's on! Don't tell me I didn't warn you!
A quick video of the outside of ShoWare Center. The outside of the building doesn't give you the 'wow factor', but a solid junior rink that seats 6 thousand. It's no Everett Events Center, yet in my opinion it's nicer than the Cranbrook Rec-Plex.
