    Re: NHL Hockey 2010-2011

    The more I check into tickets etc for the World Juniors, the more angrier I get! You could buy any USA ticket for $80 or less, any other team except Canada for as low as $20. Any Canadian games are $100 plus. Now today I heard on the radio, parking which is usually $10 for any NHL game, they are charging $50 - $60!!! Once you wait 2-3 hours to cross the bridge you are then greeted by an attendant who wants $50-$60 for parking! Fans are driving to malls parking their cars, and taking a taxi or the transit.

    For any Canadian game, the arena is packed with Canadians and their Team Canada jerseys and they knew the support they would get from their neighbours to the north. Don't get me wrong, I love Buffalo, I shop there all the time, I fly out of there when I'm going anywhere, but when it comes to hockey, this absolutely drives me nuts when they take such advantage. When you have 18,000 fans filling the arena to watch the Canadians vs 13,000 fans watching a USA game, those Canadians are eating there, staying at hotels over night and sinking more money, its disgusting that they are charging so much to park. I guess Canadian money at par is a joke!

    Ok I'm done my rant.

    Next Canada game is Dec 31st at 4pm. Here is a link to the web cam at the boarders. Q/L (Queenston Lewiston) and Peace Bridge, goes to Buffalo, will be the two that are mostly used. The Rainbow Bridge goes into Niagara Falls New York, and some will use that bridge if they know the Peace Bridge will be heavy with traffic. Check it out on Dec 31st. Crazy!!!

    I love that Canadian's are so passionate! It certainly beats what people will be paying next year. Even though I agree with you that it seems an awful lot like price gouging.

    Hopefully our neighbours to the south realize how much we contribute!

    Looking forward to Team Canada vs Sweeden tonight and the Winter Classic tomorrow!

    I just found out there will be a Heritage Classic Feb 20 2011 in Calgary. Montreal vs Calgary!

    Here is an interesting statistic!

    Winter Classic CurseSince the inception of the NHL's Winter Classic outdoor game starting during the 2007-2008 NHL Season, the away team in each instance has gone on to the Stanley Cup Finals only to lose that series. The 2007-2008 Pittsburgh Penguins were the visiting team against the 2007-2008 Buffalo Sabres, only to lose to the Detroit Red Wings in the 2008 Final that year. The 2008-2009 Detroit Red Wings visited the 2008-2009 Chicago Blackhawks, only to lose to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2009 Final. The 2009-2010 Philadelphia Flyers visited the 2009-2010 Boston Bruins, only to go on to lose to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2010 Final.[8]
