They don't build them like that anymore.

Saddledome remains the 6th largest hockey arena by capacity in the entire world:

It's a thing of beauty.
You might think that, I'm not sure many others do though. It's got about as much beauty as the Calgary Tower. IMO, of course.

I really like the Saddledome's roof.

I hope that they can retain some of those design elements in the new building, if and when one ever gets built.

Might as well get use to the idea of the Olympics rotating through a small handful of cities and reusing venues...
