It is very entertaining for the most part and our local team actually was captained by Darren Langdon a few years back . Very few guys actually make the NHL from this level...but some have !
If the NHL stays off the ice I suspect attendance levels will increase at some of these arenas . Junior hockey at both the Major Junior and Tier 2 levels always is played on the edge and usually you get your moneys worth game in and game out .
So...you folks that like live hockey...will you get your live fix for hockey somewhere else or will you just wait for the strike to end ???
I know you ruled it out, but the easiest place for me to get to is Bridgeport CT, which is a little over an hour away by commuter train from midtown Manhattan (I don't own a car). Doesn't hurt that my sister lives there either. But, the team there is the Isles' AHL team.
