True story, we actually stole the name from the Czech's. And then Budweiser bought their distribution rights in America, so that the Czech one could only be sold globally as Czechvar, instead of it's original name Budvar.

It was her and she said she would do what she could. She is awesome, she got me my tix in the first place and has been so helpful with any/every issue that's come up.

And I said I threatened cancellation, I wouldn't actually do it!!

If you are a season ticket holder and you say this I am amazed. The Rangers service and availablity to season ticket holders is great. Just look at this thread and see season ticket holders standing up for their reps, who everyone knows by first name. I would understand the arguement from people who say they take care of season ticket holders ahead of all their other fans, but they are great to season ticket holders.

The only thing people complain about is price, but their would not be a waiting list for season ticket holders, if there was not enough fans who could pay.

I don't know. My season rep is nothing special...but then again I only called him once. And I would agree with those who have said the Rangers don't really care (or at least do very much for) their season ticket holders, or their fans in general. They haven't had a hat or t-shirt promotional giveaway in 5 years! It's just pathetic.

for those who've been to Prauge or live there what are some good tourist sites there? I would love to plan a trip there if I were able to get tickets to the game.

It's a medieval city, so the Old Town is very gothic and cool. A couple big castles, awesome pubs, etc. It's a great 4 day place to visit.

Here are a couple of websites: www.czechsite.com and www.pragueexperience.com.

Prague is one of the biggest party cities in Europe. All the English go there to drink themselves silly and have a laugh. Great times.

I saw the Charles Bridge... the Astronomical Clock... and the 2 Irish bars in the city.

Didn't get a chance to see the museum. Also, if you're a classical music fan, there's some great sites around the city.

Oh, and another tip. When you go out at night... take nothing but cash in a money clip. My friend got bumped into and felt a chick trying to steal his wallet. They can't steal anything if you don't have anything on you.

The Muzeum sucks, don't waste your time. Go to the Charles Bridge, the Prague Castle, Old Town, and Wencesclas Square (basically where they smashed communism during the velvet revolution). There are some cool museums there, my favorites being the museum of communism and the museum of sex machines. Otherwise, just go and drink more beer than is humanely possible.

There's a place off the Old Town Square that sells Czech hockey jerseys. It's where I got the one that JJ and the boys signed for me.

Gambrinus and Staropramen are two of the worse czech beers, we can do much better than that . But you have some very good beers either, hm, Samuels ?

Budweiser Budvar is made in nice city Ceske Budejovice, down the south from Prague.
Pilsner Urquell is most likely the most popular Czech beer, but for some it can be bit bitter.

My personal czech beer rankings:
1-2: Pilsner Urquell, Budvar
3. Gambrinus
4. Staropramen, StaroBrno
...

Don't ever try to drink Krusovice beer!

Just few tips...
Watch out for hoisters(especially in tourists area)...
Taxi cab drivers can be sometimes SOBs...once they realize that you are foreigner watch out for price for a ride.
Try Czech kitchen...Svickova(beef with dumplings), Pecena kachna(roasted duck) and so on...pick up some good restaurant and don't be afraid ;-)

Btw one guy who has company related to hockey business already got some tickets in advance...so tickets are being distributed for companies and VIPs...but not for normal fans yet.

Seems that the NHLPA has finally signed off on the game. I knew that they would, eventually.... they just wanted their own press time.

No way man! Gambrinus was great! I know you're Czech, so you are definitely an afficionado, but Gambrinus is superior to every single beer ever distributed in the U.S.

Wrong exchange rate buddy
Cheapest ticket is for 2000CZK = 120$
Most expensive tickets are for 8000CZK max = 490$


Talk about rip off...and u guys are mad at Dolan

Where have you found that information? I have been looking for it even in the arena site for a long time and I can't find it.
