NHL charity game in Toronto

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=411480

Quote:
TORONTO -- A group of NHL stars is set to take the ice again at Maple Leaf Gardens.

Steven Stamkos and P.K. Subban are scheduled to lead teams of locked-out NHLers during a charity game on Dec. 19. It will be held at Ryerson University's new Mattamy Athletic Centre, which is located inside the building the Toronto Maple Leafs called home from 1931 to 1999.

The proceeds from the game will benefit the NHLPA's Goals & Dreams fund and RBC's Play Hockey initiative.

"(It) is a great opportunity to share the joy and excitement of hockey with our fans," Stamkos said Wednesday in a release. "I'm looking forward to playing alongside this impressive lineup of fellow NHL players while helping to raise funds to benefit local hockey programs across the country."

Among the other players set to attend are James Neal, Logan Couture, Dion Phaneuf, Phil Kessel, Tomas Kaberle, Mike Komisarek, Kris Versteeg, Niklas Kronwall and John-Michael Liles.

Tickets will be on sale starting Thursday at a price of $25.

That's a pretty decent line up and 25 bucks for charity is a great price. Why not??

Never understood the appeal of watching a bunch of guys float around.

Correct, it's in the title.

FYI - you can donate to charity without watching a bunch of guys float around.

No ****, but don't bash them for "floating" when this is for charity, do you really expect them to go all out and possibly get hurt?

It's not competitive hockey. It's same as watching a bunch of actors you like sit in a restaurant and eat. But a good place to go to with some outrageous signs.

You don't see the appeal in watching a charity hockey game?

Seeing some NHL hockey players scrimmage, and all you had to do is make a donation to charity

really?

People have other things to do with their time. I agree with him. Watching NHLers float around is not something that appeals to me either, thus I'd rather donate to not watch them play and do something else with my time.

This kind of thing is great for parents who want to surprise their kids by taking them to see some of their heroes in person at an affordable price during an expensive time of the year.

Maybe as adults the level of competition is what drives your interest, but to kids it's all about the players.

Exactly, kids are more star struck.
I remember the kids having a blast at the All Star game practice back in 2000, talking to players, getting autographs.

The game the next day will be remembered as a Sunday afternoon I'll never get back.

i don't see it. watching nhl players scrimmage holds no appeal whatsoever.

make a donation to your favorite charity and stay home.

Last player I was gaga over was Mogilny. CSKA boy, what an exciting player. When he came to the Leafs, I was ******** bricks. Since he left, I haven't that excited about any player.

and tickets for $25 are probably nosebleeds in the ACC, good seats in The Gardens will be like 4 bills.

I'm not a kid, just a really big hockey fan. Being able to see NHL players play hockey (scrimmage or real) for a 25 buck donation, is awesome

Scalpers buying all the tickets and re-selling them at $100+. Watch.

There is no game at ACC, and they said tickets are $25, not starting at $25.

In the 1st post, as copied from TSN it says starting from $25. And when I said the $25 tickets are in ACC, because this is how far you would sit for this price in Toronto. Sense of humour, I recommend it.
