I've always wanted to attend an NHL game in Toronto or Montreal to be at the game's roots.....Toronto is only about 600 miles so maybe this year............
It's TARANNA!

That interview was vintage Phil, if a 21 year old can be vintage. He IS shy even on the phone. He's done interviews on the radio here in Madison and he sounds exactly the same. He is not arrogant or a snob; just a kid who has been under the microscope since he was about 8 years old. I'm sure he'll be quite nervous during interviews for a while.

It's very interesting reading all of the posts on all of the threads. You (fans) are very knowledgeable, but that is well known in the US hockey community.

My white cap with the blue Leaf is ordered, Center Ice on DISH Network is ordered, now welcome me as the newest Leaf's fan, please!!
Welcome to the team! The more Leaf fans, the better! Did you cheer for anyone else before?

And don't want to go off topic here, but I've always wondered why Wisconsin has never been considered for an NHL franchise. Seems like it's a natural fit. And would be a great natural rival for Minnesota.

Being "aboot" 3 hours from Chicago, one could pick up the games on the radio back in the day, so there was a Blackhawks "lean". Currently there are some "Sconnies" on the Blackhawks, so I remain a bit close. I became a Bruins fan when Kessel got drafted, but we're done with them now! It's difficult here to be close to the NHL, but Center Ice has me busy all season.

There was a time not too long ago that Milwaukee was considered for a franchise. A wealthy family even built the Bradley Center (home of the AHL Admirals), but it was apparently blocked by old man Wirz in Chicago because of proximity. Milwaukee is not a good hockey city anyway. Madison is hockey mad, but only has about 210,000 population. We fill The Kohl Center for almost all Wisconsin Badger games (15,000 +), but this is a college town.

Oh yea...Minnesota? They suck!

Sorry to be off topic.

Do you think they could fill the arena in Milwaukee if Chicago allowed a franchise there? I have to believe a franchise there would be better than one in Nashville, or Phoenix.

Anyway, just something I always found odd. I never understood why the NHL wouldn't exhaust all traditional markets, before going to the non traditional ones.

Anyway, back on topic.

Occasionally. They're just not hockey savvy over there.

I hear it as Teronno.

Ya, definitely my accent too. I'm from that "area". Closer to K-W actually.
