What is not to like about soulbonds? I aks you this. Also, live sporting events are awesome. Have you considered going to an NCAA game before tackling an NHL experience? As long as you don't live in like Minnesota, an NCAA game would be a lot less noise than an NHL game. It might be a gentle way to introduce you to going to games. And would be cheaper!
PS Or, just to put that out there, have you considered going to a baseball game instead
of a hockey game? Just, for, you know research. Into the atmosphere of sporting events. Or something!
