    Very nice -- much nicer than the green St. Pats unis they wore last season.

    I can just image the price tag for one.

    My ticket for Leafs @ Habs on Oct. 14 was delivered this afternoon. Looking at the face value of the ticket vs. what I paid, I'm guessing scalping is either legal in Canada, or they figure les Américain imbéciles don't have much recourse.

    Ordered 2 tix for Leafs @ Caps on 10/17. Upper deck corner Row J and paid $35 each, counting fees. Face was $28 each. Last year you could not get a ticket.

    Bettman: Flames need a new arena.

    Owner to Calgary: give us money for a new arena or we'll leave!

    Owner and city negotiate. The talks fall apart.

    Owner: Eh, screw it.

    The Flames are going nowhere

    First off, the Calgary Flames are not moving to another city. The Flames sold 767,829 tickets last season to rank 10th of 30 teams in the National Hockey League in attendance.

    The league won’t allow one of the best teams in the league to move, when there are teams like Carolina or Arizona who are struggling.

    It also will not allow the Flames to move when it can get over $500 million in new franchise fees for a new team, as it did this year from Las Vegas.

    It's called spending other peoples' money. In cynical terms - extortion.

    Weird watching VGK and hearing Dave Goucher.

    And the Golden Knights are beating the Canucks 4-2 in the 2nd. Should the fans start buying playoff tickets??

    This is like the Berlin Wall - just package up some tap water and sell it for $85 a pop.

    Here is a nice video about the Calgary Flames arena
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBtfjlxhnrE

    This youtube channel is great for NHL videos on all teams and different topics. I highly recommend checking out The Hockey Guy on youtube.

    I'm not entirely through it yet but he's spot on for the first 7 minutes or so.

    If you get past his goofy set up, he knows a lot about hockey and has a nice perspective.

    I'd say "just another story about how hockey players are the best", but I don't think that quite describes it.
