Be happy. It's another opportunity to show North America we belong.

I'm loving this. Give Columbus some (good) national attention.

Great for the city - I'm thrilled.

Weird timing though given the performance of this franchise, but perhaps the earlier poster is right that the NHL is really trying to help them out and make this work. Kudos to all involved.

Wireless internet can be done easily enough.

Scoreboard? Probably expensive but I agree they could use a new one.

But it sounds like everything else is just minor tweaking here and there, which is okay, too. Nationwide can always use some TLC. I don't ever want to see it go the route of other arenas, like the Tampa Bay Times Forum, which was neglected for some time and is finally getting the TLC it needs.

I can tell you I'm not going to happy. I'm a year 1 10-4-1 psl holder who is screwed when it comes to playoffs and events like the ASG. I've already had the conversation with the Jackets marketing folks who told me that if/when the Jackets host an ASG I won't get lower bowl seats. Just another example of the Jackets disrespecting long term supporters. Granted I'll likely get a chance to buy 2 upper bowl seats; but I highly doubt I'll get a shot at anything similar to the 4 seats I've bought in 120 for the past 10 years. Be advised there will be a lot of national demand and thes tix will go for a premium. I guess if I did not want to go the game it would be a way to recoup some of the 25,000 dollars I've invested in this team. I'd love to hear the jacket management spin on this one.

The 15 to 25 million the game will bring to the city will more then pay for any updates needed.

Don't blame the Jackets, blame the NHL. They determine who has first rights to tickets. Yes full season ticket holders are going to have first choice over partial plans, name one team in the NHL where that wouldn't be the case!
Right off hand, you should be glad if you are given the chance to get tickets. National demand after full season ticket holders could eat up what's left.

Great. OR..."Are we going to have a rep for the ASG?"

If we have another ****** year, Nash will get it by default....

Well, there's only one thing to do.

I have the loudest mouth and the biggest chip on my shoulder, so I'll lead voting efforts to ensure that this does NOT happen.

Also, we'll get Klesla voted in as a write-in.

How pissed are the Canadians going to be if the Jackets have 3-4 players in the game.
