I'm thinking about taking my brother on a trip to watch some NHL game. Would probably be a weekend trip since packages seems to cost alot more.
Anyone got any good experience from a travel agent that I could use?
I'm mostly looking into any games by Detroit, Washington or Vancouver.
Any help here on what travel agency I could talk to would be very helpful. Especially with personal experience.

Tampa would be good as well to watch
Les Habitants always offer a great atmosphere.
... but if you really want to hit the brass, go watch the Rangers. Hockey wise, not as cool as Montreal, but you can usually find tix pretty easily, and the city of New York is the best! It's not only easy to get to from Sweden, but the City!!! Damn. Strolling around on 5th Ave, especially just before the holidays, Xmas shopping is just a treat for the soul, and depending on how the SEK is doing to the USD, you might just get the trip on a "discount" depending on how many presents you usually buy for the holidays.
Detroit is also fun, but the city is a dump. Vancouver is awesome, in all respects.. one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but a bit cumbersome to fly to from Sweden.
So, go for New York! Avoid the New Jersey pit and ignore Long Island... there is nothing there... Take a harbor cruise and they'll point it out to you. Manhattan is also quite affordable these days. Catch a tour, a show, a game and a dog, all in one day, as you can get around anywhere worthwhile going without a car. Damn I miss New York.
if you're looking to visit a lot of arena's you might want to try somewhere between the dc-boston area. caps to devils/rangers is about 4 hour by car or maybe 10 dollars on a bus. philly is in between dc and new york city. the islanders play about an hour east of nyc which is accessible by train (kind of) and boston is about 4 hours or another 10 dollar bus ride north of new york. you can easily get tickets for devils and islanders and i've never heard of anyone having a problem getting a ticket for the rangers because there are so many scalpers outside.
