Times must have changed since the financial world went down as when I grew up north of Detroit, it was always hard to get Wings tickets even during their 80's dead wings years.

At the time I thought it was a fantastic arena. Once the Stapler was opened though it made the Pond look small and cheap.
I was at the first pre-season game there, Kings-Ducks, and I ran into Jimmy Fox in the concourse. I said "What do you think of this place?" "Real nice." me-"We need one like it now..." JF-"Pretty soon, I hope"

That first year the Pond was open I went to every Anaheim Bullfrogs game as well #Champs

Knew there was no way I the only one who did this. I flew out for games 3 and 4, it was crazy how awesome people were once they found out i was there from Minnesota. I think I bought maybe 2 beers out of 8-9 at the Yard House pre game and post game for game 3 and the couple I sat next to for game 4 got my address and sent me a huge box of Kings giveaway stuff from games over the years a couple weeks after the trip. Just great people!

Seen the kings a bunch of times, mostly on the road because I am from Hamilton,ON.
Toronto: every year they come.
Buffalo: every year they come.
Ottawa: Twice, got freebies from mcgratton and got to Meet a bunch of the players after.
Detroit: met Scott parses whole family at a bar before the game and partied with his twin sister and her friends after the game.
Vancouver: flew down for game 5 a few years ago, Kings were spanked 7-3 and got beer whipped at us as we were leaving. Canucks fans are retards.
New jersey: Drove down for game 5, hoping the kings would clinch it.

Thats awesome. Kings fans are the best in the league.

Loved being in Vancouver to watch the Kings beat the Canucks a few years ago. Canucks fans are the most hated in the the league Id say, worse then Toronto fans. I love seeing Van lose...

Awesome!

I know I get cool remarks whenever I tell my story of becoming a Kings fans in the mid 80's thanks to Bernie Nichols and staying up late even school nights to listen to any team relatively near by(Detroit, Chicago, Toronto,etc) that I could pick up on my hand held radio playing a home game or out in LA just so I could take in a Kings game as they weren't exactly going to be on tv quite often where I lived in Michigan.

One of these days I will do a Montreal/Toronto/Ottawa trip.

I look forward to hitting up Kings games in all of the Canadian cities. Hopefully Winnipeg isn't in the dead center of winter.

Yes, I went to game 5 in NJ, the only road game they lost in the playoffs

Hope next year they have a game in Philly cause I will definitely go then.

I swear that part of any realignment, I just want the return of the schedule where you play everyone in the opposite conference twice- home and away. That was another dumb Bettman change that I really hated.

If anyone else will be out in Phoenix for this Tuesday's match, we don't change our clocks so we are now back on the same time as you are out in California.

Seen them in Washington, Minnesota (North Stars), Montreal, Atlanta and Phoenix.
No one from those towns gave me any crap at all.
