The Rookie game will be very interesting since it's the rookies vs. the second years. Can't wait for that.

Well a portion of the proceeds is going to a good cause. Then again, the portion could be small

In Montreal it's about controlling the size of crowds, in other cities it can be about attracting them.

That was pretty much what I thought when I read that they were charging. They are charging because they can and will get every penny of it.

I am almost positive the one in Toronto required paid admission.

Toronto is 4 hours away, Ottawa is 2, and Quebec city is... an hour or 2 away as well ? I'm not sure. Montreal really needs to keep crowd control. If they didn't charge, I'm sure there'd probably be a huge brawl.

Should be fun, if you people go. If I was still in Montreal, I'd be there. I wanted to see the Montreal Jamboree in the summer, but they didn't ****ing have it :@

o damn i am pumped for this asg. I wish the jamboree was free like last year, like the tickets weren't expensive enough. But what can you do, it should be one hell of a time. Hope Montreal does a good job with it. btw im verry happy komi is starting, having an LI kid start in the ASG is great. Hope its a great time for me and everybody else that goes

So I drove by the parking lot this morning (mother works in the building right across from it on Rene-Levesque) and I noticed they are putting the metal infrastructure for a roof there. I didn't know it was for the Jamboree? Or is it gonna be in that little square right next to the Bell Center, where it always was, and u dont have to cross the street or anything.

Does anybody know where to get autographs? Are the players staying at the Marriott? I wanted to try to get autographs of the All-Stars....won't it be easier to get them at the hotel or on the way to the rink?
