Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I still don't think it'll happen, but the proposed schedule for the play-in round is INSANE and it'll basically be March Madness but for hockey. I have something like 4+ weeks of vacation in the bank (and obviously nowhere to go, nothing to do) so if they make it to Aug. 1 maybe I'll take a week of...

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I mean MLS got everyone to bubble and then had two teams withdraw and be sent home.

I agree, I can't see how this doesn't all fall apart in the next 2 weeks.

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I was half-listening to TSN describe the hotel/arena/bubble details last night and thought it sounded pretty reasonable, all things considered. But here's the thing - how are they going to get from phase 2/3/whatever the hell this is now (with no bubble or off-ice restrictions) to full training camp...

Re: :davidbooth:

1. Go to the store as early as you can, on a weekday if possible. Initially I did this for stock reasons, but recently I've noticed that people who shop early in the day are more respectful of protocols than people who shop in the middle of the day (especially on weekends). I went to Costco at 8:30...

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

In a general sense I wonder, if your favorite team isn’t involved, whether it’s more enjoyable to pay a bunch of money to see a good team play from worse seats or pay less money to see a bad team play from good seats. I've always been more interested in the individual players so, while not exactly ...

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

I should add that the Ottawa Civic Centre was incredible - seeing NHL games in an OHL size rink. The team was putrid that entire era but it was fun seeing guys like Mogilny and Lafontaine put up 4-5 points each in a game.

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

Ok here goes... 1. Tampa: Great location, great gameday atmosphere outside as you walk up. Amazing scoreboard and variety of food/beer options. 2. Vegas: Total entertainment experience. It's a party in there. 4. Mtl: Best in game atmosphere, even if you hate the Habs. 5. MSG: The mecca! 6. Ottawa: T...

Re: The New Official 2019-2020 NHL Season Thread

At some point I will try to take the time to do the same for the NHL arenas I've been to.

I think Amalie Arena in TB is tops on my list. Helps that I had great seats, but felt like the perfect "modern" arena experience imo.

My wife has been doing like 95% of the shopping so I'm really unaware of the various protocols out there. That's all about to change though. She's going to be taking her mom home to Nova Scotia shortly - and will have to quarantine for 14 days on arrival - so I'll be single dad'ing it for an extende...

Thankfully masks are about to become mandatory indoors in Mtl (but not actually "mandatory" until July 27) so we can stop having this fucking stupid debate. Just put a mask on and shut up already. I went to get Jr's skates sharpened the other day and forgot my mask in the car and felt like an embarr...

I have the candemic (great term) happening in my garage right now. I've only been buying beer from my local microbrew, trying help keep them afloat, and those things are 20c each.

Thanks for this btw. Just figured out the account number from the print label and got it working.
