Rangers to open 11-12 season in Europe?

I don't know if there's a thread about this or not but...

Pierre LeBrun says that the Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks are the teams asked by the NHL to participate in the games in Europe but haven't agreed yet.

"For the Rangers, Kings and Ducks, it would be a second go-around at the Premiere Games. The Rangers opened in Prague against Tampa in October 2008, while the Kings and Ducks played the first Premiere Games in London, to kick off the 2007-08 season.

It makes sense for the Rangers to go again since Madison Square Garden, undergoing impressive renovations/improvements next summer, won't be ready for the Rangers until mid-October, a source said Saturday."

I agree it makes sense since the renovations won't be complete but I hate it when they do this since it screws up our schedule. Thoughts?

Didn't Bettman say that the Rangers won't get an outdoor game because it wouldn't be fair to the other NY area teams? Maybe he should apply the same bs approach to this bs idea.

I really don't care where they play as long as

a.) I can watch it on T.V. or Gamecenter

and

b.) They win.

That's not Europe, but thanks for playing ;-)

I'd love to see Sweden, Norway, or Germany, but it will probably be something boring like NYR-Caps in Moscow..

Pretty much. They can play on Mars and it doesn't make a difference to me as long as they get the W.

I lost? I thought Somalia was in Asia, neighboring China?

Oh, that's too bad.

Pisses me off as a STH because I lose games that I could go to. Takes away some home ice advantage. And we did this three years ago. Enough already, send the Isles or Devils with their top draft pick. So sick of the NHL trying to get Europe involved in the sport.

Unless it's in Sweden NO THANKS, There would be a hell of a lotta fans there for hank and zucca, maybe even hagelin but I don't think as a player you want to start the season off in an unfamiliar place and then have to take a long ass plane ride back to the us.

Eh, would rather do an outdoor game. The Europe thing is cool but don't overdo it so soon.

I thought he said it was because they want to do it at the Yankee Stadium but it's not available for the next couple years...?

Please Gothenburg for once, if played in Sweden it would easily make the most sense. You'd have a huge fan base of Frölunda fans who would come to watch Henrik, and Oslo with all their Zuccarello fans is only 3 hours away with good road, train, and flight connections.
