You can't buy tickets for that game right now, the tickets are expected to be for sale late in March, but noone knows for sure right now.

You'll love it. Best vacation I ever had was in Prague. Beautiful city, and although not many people spoke English... they all understood my Rangers sweater. Got a lot of weird Czechglish speak from people trying to talk to me in English. Even had a group of Charles Bridge guards come with me and my buddies to a strip joint on a whim. Those guys were big Jagr fans... and even bigger drinkers!

I've been gearing up to make this trip as well, but I'm not getting my hopes up because I think tickets are going to be damn near impossible for us to obtain over here (at a somewhat reasonable price at least). Please though, if any of our Czech friends can help out, let me know!

I've been to Prague three times ('91, '92, & '05) and have had an amazing time every visit. Great town, great beer.

I have already threatened my season ticket rep with cancellation if they can't me tix over there, lol. I didn't get a real vacation last year so I am REALLY looking forward to Switzerland and CR (and maybe England too). I also pitched to the rep that it would be nice if the team actually booked some kind of all-inclusive travel/hotel package for fans to go over there and she said she will pass it on. I don't know if it means anything, but it would be nice ...

Last year the LA Kings and LA Ducks both organized vacation packages for their supporters to travel with the team, have tickets to the games, and meet the players at different events held throughout the weekend.

It would be nice if the Rangers offered something similiar to the blurshirt supporters.

Both organizations care far more about their fans/season ticket holders then this organization ever will... At best, the Rangers will offer tickets through a broker and only charge a Rangers premium of 10% for the pleasure. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if there was an exchange rate charge as well...

I hope it wasn't Stephanie! She's one of the nicest ticket reps on the staff. She really helped me out when I picked up a third seat a few years back.

I wouldn't threaten cancellation though -- there's a waiting list now!

Slowly there guys . I think the demand for tickets to Rangers game in Prague is gonna be huge! I won't be surprised if there was like like twenty times the people willing to pay for tickets then the amount of tickets. I'm seriously afraid that me and my fellow Rangers fans in Czech republic won't get the tickets becouse of much more prominent people will want to show on the game .

I think hockey is big enough in the Czech Republic for this game to sell out even if Jagry wasn't a Ranger. true?

Anyway, let's hope the Rangers care a little about our traveling supporters ehh?

Imagine if Jags, Straka decided not to come back? Or didn't get resigned?

I just got back from studying abroad in Prague for four months. It was unbelievable, and I really recommend that you all try and get there. I can't believe I missed our boys by a year! Anyway, the beer there is phenomenal, gambrinus and staropramen put bud light to shame...although that's not tough.

Bud Light? Ugh. How do they compare to real beer? I hear beer there is really cheap, eh? Also, my ex-girlfriend studied abroad in the CR and she said the people there were not very nice to her (the least friendly of all she met throughout Europe). I found that to be kind of strange...

Let's put it this way, no matter what beer you've had before, Czech beers destroy it. Easily the best beer I've ever had, bar none. As for the people there, they're like the people here in NYC, cold--plus you don't speak their language, so it's a double whammy. People there are friendly enough as long as you make an effort to speak the basics of Czech and are willing to drop a bit of money. All in all, the night life there is tremendous, the beer is great and they love hockey--what's not to like.

Well in Prague most people were nice. But I was wearing some Ranger gear, so hockey bridged the gap.

When I didn't have Ranger gear on... well... yeah they were VERY Anti-American. I went there as part of a group going to see Glasgow Celtic play in a UEFA Cup match. Most guys had Irish and Scottish flags. I had an American flag. I had some guys throwing beer and **** at me. I didn't care. I was in the foreign supporters' section, and I wasn't the only American... so the Flag stayed out. Tied it right alongside the Tricolour and the Scots colors... Made some great friends that night in other Celtic supporters.

Then there was the cabbie in the old section of Prague who tried to overcharge us once he heard us talking. Refused to pay him anything more than what it should have been. He got pissed.

But for the most part, the people were nice. Not the nicest I've ever seen in Europe, but when I had the hockey sheeeeeet on, they were fine.

A little know fact: the original Budweiser beer is from a town called Budvar (or something like that), and was bought/stolen by Anheuser-Busch. Also, pilsner is originally from a town called Pilsen (Plsen).
