It'll be worth it, though.
Wow man when I went up last month, I got 2 tickets in the Club Desjardins section (free food, non-alc drinks, private entrance, private pub, more comfortable seats etc.) off of eBay for $360.00 each.

Seriously, the Arena in the Hat is NUTS.
A dream vaca of mine is to bookend games in Calgary and Edmonton with a week's worth of junior games in the Hat, Red Deer (B?) etc. Maybe in Regina or whatever on the way up. Someday...

I did a game in Edmonton in 2004, I actually met Gallant in the Hotel the night before the game (I had met him before and he knew me) and he gave me two tickets for the wife and I. We sat behind Conklin with the wifes etc.

I had a blast, the Edmonton fans were great and very interested in the CBJ. We also had a great time on White Street, it was St Patricks day.

A great town and great folks.

I went to a Jackets game in Vancouver in 06 and it was a great time. Everybody in the crowd sang the Canadian anthem along with the guy singing it. They talked about the game all day on tv and radio leading up to game time. The crowd was in to the game from the drop of the puck all the way untill the end. The funny part was that everybody that I talked to at the game and hotel were shocked that a guy from Ohio knew so much about hockey, I told them that all americans are not stupid when it comes to hockey

Thanks for the tip... Nevertheless, I'm pleased it worked out. I was quite happy with the seats. Saw the whole ice.

I'll save your advice for next time. Will post more shortly...

Thanks.

Just for the record, I caught a Sabres-Maple Leafs games at the old MLG while in Toronto on my honeymoon. That was way, way pre-Jackets, Felix Potvin in goal, I believe Tie Domi scored one for the Leafs. What a great old barn. You could practically hear the ghosts of legends recounting their exploits.

My wife never did tell me where she went that evening. (Just kidding, she was in the seat to my right ....)

The best roadtrip (Jr wise) would be:

Calgary-Lethbridge-MH-SC-Regina

I've been to every one but Swift.

It will probably stay that way too.

Incredible! Montreal was beautiful (and in some cases covered with 30 feet of snow piles) but it was great. I had seats in section 316 and I thought the view was terriffic. You didn't feel too far from the action, despite being so high up, off the ice.

The fans were extremely passionate (as I knew they would be...) and were into every scrap of action from the game. Obviously important for the division and the overall conference lead, this game against the Sens, was crucial and with a win the Habs secured a playoff spot. Montreal owned Ottawa, racking up a 7-1 through 2 periods. The final score: 7-5, Habs.

The presentation before the game was amazing! The lights went out and names of some of the old "great ghosts" appeared etched in white on the darkened ice surface. Names such as Lafleur, Beliveau, Plante, Richard x 2, Gainey, Dryden, etc. glowed on the ice. Then each name was replaced with a black-and-white picture of the player... it was a marvelous intro!

Listening to O Canada was beautiful and sent chills up my spine just as expected!

The game was like a terrific play in which the heros (the Canadiens) were cheered for every pass, goal and check; while the villians (the Senators) were booed at every touch of the puck.

You talk about classy, you talk about history, legacy and on and on... that's what I saw of the Montreal Canadiens and their fans at the Bell Centre.

It was truly a beautiful sight, a terrific memory and a great experience! The people of Montreal were warm, inviting and accomodating. I don't speak a word of French but everyone that I came across was pleasant and patient with me. Their english was superb and everyone was so welcoming!
