I went, missed all the players, including Linden.

However, the rest was really cool. The trophies, the memorabilia from the HHoF, tons of kids activities (had my 2 1/2 year old there and it wore him down). Well worth the afternoon spent there, my wife and I were saying we actually would have paid an admission fee. That is how good it was.

I'll try and post some pics of the trophies and memorabilia later if I get the chance.

I went with a couple friends, had a great time. There was plenty to do, from the HHOF exhibits mentioned to the ball hockey tournament outside, the ice hockey games indoors on the dual olympic ice surfaces, the big tv set up to watch the CBC feed all day, hardest shot and accuracy shooting challenges, tons of memorabilia and hockey cards for sale/auction, and of course the celebrity game featuring Linden. I'll post a couple vids I took in this post.
