believe it is the first saturday in october and tickets go on sale in june. Someone can clarify if i am off on that though.
Hard to say, but in my opinion I believe this year it's going to be the 29th of September. If they wait till the first Saturday of October then it's Oct 6. I just don't see them opening the season October 9th or 10th.
I already booked a room for the 29th taking a crap shoot. My birthday is the 25th so it is usually on or just after my birthday. Last year was the latest I remember it ever being. No matter how much the Kings suck or are mediocre, I think I'll always go to Frozen Fury.
After attending the last Frozen Fury, I think I had an epiphany: that I'm wasting money to watch preseason hockey, and the games are not that exciting. Maybe it's because the Kings were taking it easy with their trip to Europe right after, but seeing the players just give a half assed effort in preseason hockey made me realize it simply isn't worth the money. I'd rather go enjoy a Vegas trip without the hockey and spend the money at a damn good steakhouse.
^ The game last year was actrocious. Good thing I was completely bombed and barely remember it. The game is usually pretty exciting. I've found that I spend a lot less money when I go to Vegas and the trip is centered around something whether it be a hockey game, concert or wedding.
