Yeh, I used my exact home address here in Montreal. Actually, I can do that one better. Next year I'm moving to Toronto and the building *I think* i'll be moving into is 0.55 miles from the ACC. Not that it helps, since I hate the leafs

I couldn't get the adress for the Flames to work on Mapquest. I instead just got the distance from my residence to the city of Calgary. I am a Canucks season ticket holder. Given the great distance to any other NHL team my choice was simple.
You cross the border for 41 home games a year? WOW!!

I'm 15 miles from the Canucks and a heck of a long way from any other team.

Habs HQ:
Total Est. Time: 14 minutes Total Est. Distance: 6.07 miles

Beside 14 mins is kindda not true, 30 minutes would be more accurate..

Ennemy HQ:

5 hours, 28 minutes Total Est. Distance: 313.35 miles

5 hours.. not bad to see the Bruins losing the playoff in 5 or 7

Do you live in Chelsea or something?

And to the two posters before Dartmouth: Save yourself the embarassment and don't post if you can't follow simple, kindergarten-esque instructions.

I am a 40 minute drive from the devils, the team I hate the most I went to the flyers last week, and although it rocked, it was an hour and a half drive too long, and plus getting out of that parking lot is hell, I don't think I've ever sworn so much :mad:

Parking for the Wachovia Center can be bad, but I've seen much worse.

Maybe it was just that night, because it took me 30 minutes to get out of the parking lot. It was also very rainy, maybe that had something to do with it.
