This will be a day long remembered...  in a show of provincial brotherhood (what with us being the 11th province and all), I'll be buying a sweater to help your club get back on it's feet. ;)

He's probably drunk at his computer and cannot find "Post".  :)

Hic.  Found it. 

Pleased I am.  Bettman looked angry throughout the entire press conference.   :D




Trying to figure out season tickets.  I'm somewhat pleasantly surprised by the prices but disappointed by the terms.  I'd like P2's but don't like the five year term associated with it and don't even really like the four year term with the P3 level.

I can't wait for the game tonight -- the Bruins, the team I've cheered for since I was a kid, vs the Canucks, the team that I now live close to; my 2 favourite teams.  Should be a blast!

1870 season tickets sold in the first hour.  Not too impressive until you realize that the ticket sales are only currently available to Manitoba Moose season ticket holders from last season.  There were 2000 season ticket holders for the Moose, the rest was walk up traffic.  So 130 people have two days to decide if they want to buy their tickets before they all go on sale to the general public. 

I'm still not sure what to do but I've got a funny feeling that it's going to take about a week at most to sell 13,000 season tickets.

Old time hockey.  Toe Blake.  Eddie Shore.

Nice 1-0 game last night.  Tough to see Boston lose, but that was a nice goal.  Looks to be a great series. 

It would appear I've been able to assemble a group of shareholders for a season ticket package.  Two major buyers at 10 games each and then four guys for five games each.  P3 level if we can get it.

Two days, a quarter of the way there.  I'm thinking season tickets sell out on Saturday.

Man, over half-way there and 'regular' folks haven't even had a chance to buy yet?  :o

I didn't know what to expect when they first announced that "drive to 13" stuff, but man.  If they are getting a minimum three-year commitment from 13k fans in basically 5 days, you guys deserve your new Manitobah Polar Bears Locust Falcons whatever... 

Makes me wonder what I'll have to pay stubhub when I drive up there to see a game...  :-\

I have ten games out of the 45 (41 reg/4 pre).  If there's a particular game you want, pm me and I can shoot for it in the draft.

Somebody please inform Mr. Bettman that it took 17 minutes to sell out the season tickets in the dubious market of Winnipeg.  No hockey fans there, no corporate support.  Nope.  None. 

P1 sold out by early yesterday.  The P2 seats sold out last night after the drive to 13 meter was updated to about 7000 fans.  Apparently the P7 cheap seats were almost all gone last night too.  So only about 6000 seats made it to the public sale today. 

I'm in P3.   ;D

Here's a fun one for you guys... I had game one on in the background the other day so I didn't watch it all that closely... assuming there was one day off between games I looked for game two last night.  The guide said Stanley Cup Finals at 10:00 on NHL Network.  I thought it was a little weird that it wasn't on Versus or a major network, but I figured if the NHL wanted the broadcast, they'd have it.  The time slot didn't seem that weird to me given that the game is in Vancouver.

So I turn it on around midnight in the third period and watch... stunned that it was a 0-0 game, again, heading late into the third.  Then when Vancouver scored with less than 0:30 left I couldn't believe that Thomas fell for the same thing again...

So yeah, I was watching a game one replay thinking until about a minute after I saw the goal scored that I was watching game 2.
