One thing this hero neglects to mention is that Ottawa's arena isn't in the downtown core. Actually it isn't even in the city of Ottawa! The Scotia Bank Barn is out in the boonies and is better suited to monster truck rallies than hockey games.
Ottawa didn't have to deal with 21273 fans getting out of the arena after a game and funneling into the streets of downtown. After most playoff games your lucky to get downtown around 1am if you actually are a real fan and stay to watch the entire game instead of trying to beat the traffic.
Luckily for the mayor and his lackies the city of Ottawa won't have to deal with a long cup run and sens mile will be a ghost town for many playoffs to come...
