I'm more interested in touring numerous ballparks than I am NHL stadiums. Not to say there aren't a few I'd love to take in a game at but I don't have more than a handful. Lots of ballparks I want to see, though. Knocked a few off the list already.

I like going to games in places where I can go see a game for cheap, so I see no point in ever seeing the Hawks in Toronto. I'll stick to Minnesota, Nashville, Columbus, etc.

Sun Belt, you could hit a bunch of cities for tickets under $10 each.

I love this, as well.

Been to games in Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Kansas City other than the obvious ones if you're a Cubs fan like Wrigley, the Cell, and Miller Park.

But once you add the flights it's expensive, and I'm broke .

Minnesota I can take a bus up to for like $60 roundtrip and hang with my buddy for a weekend. It's a win win.

I agree. Every ballpark is different with its own charm. Would be a very cool thing. Every hockey arena is pretty much the same. From NHL to AHL to a college team it's the same general thing. It'd be a nice novelty but if I had to pick one I'd try to see every ballpark before I'd see every hockey stadium.

Yeah, I could go to any baseball game just to walk around the stadium for hours. Hockey doesn't have that at all.

yep, would like to get one of the SJ goalies. On the other side, Greiss may not even be the best german goalie. Germany has 3 maybe even 4 goalies on the same level. Greiss being one of them

I've only been to Toronto, except it was Maple Leaf Gardens. I went twice, when I was 9 and when I was 10. Both times the Leafs faced the Hawks, and I was decked out in Hawks gear. I remember in the one game, Domi and Probert got into one of the longest fights I can remember, it was legendary.

Grabner's breakaway goal was awesome just because of how bad his speed can make people look.

Speaking of cheap games..... the Hurricanes actually broke my expectations. I'm visiting my brother in Durham in March, and we're going to a Canes/Devils games, and have to admit that I was expecting much cheaper tickets. Not as high as the Hawks, obviously, but was expecting them to be closer to the Floridan teams price-wise.

Can't complain about high $20/low $30 tickets, though.

Oh, and Isles are just smacking around Pittsburgh and just killed a five minute PP against them.

Nielsen is so good. I'd give a first and a prospect for him. Also would love Nabby if he is available sometime.

Not surprised they'd be higher than the Panthers or Bolts. Only game in town and a great fan base due to that.
