NHL Teams you live closest to

I made a similar thread to this many months ago, but wanted to create it again with a bit more accuracy.

The purpose of this thread is just to get a good idea of where people at HF live in relation to the location of different NHL teams. Just reply to the thread with your own personal list of teams you live closest to.

To make this a lot easier for you, I just spent the last half hour or so making a list of the exact addresses of all 30 NHL arenas, just so people can easily figure out the exact distance from their homes:


Use this site to find the distance from your place to different NHL franchises, just pasting the address from the list above into the directions:


List all the teams you live within 200 miles of, in order from nearest to furthest. Round to the closest whole mile. For your home team don't just put 0 miles....find the exact distance. It makes things more interesting.

Murray, KY to...

Nashville: 122 miles
St. Louis: 218 miles
Atlanta : 369 miles
Chicago: 419 miles
Columbus: 430 miles
Carolina: 653 miles

So I went with 6 teams...Nashville is my favorite, I dislike St. Louis and Columbus, like Atlanta, and I'm impartial towards Carolina.
