That is one upside to being a Leaf's fan, no worries about pesky Stanley Cup scheduling conflicts...

It hasn't been confirmed yet. There's going to be a press release later today. I don't feel confident about it, to say the least. If they re-schedule the show to the following day, I have no way of getting there. The ONLY way it could possibly work is if Air Canada refund our non-refundable $2000.00 tickets. As ntalwar pointed out, they did that for U2 fans in Australia when all those shows got cancelled. But this is AIR CANADA we're talking about. I've probably got about a 10% chance now of seeing the show I've been looking forward to since March.

I hope the Sens LOSE. Yeah, I know, this is a shitty reason to curse a hockey team. But I'm upset, disappointed, and very close to tears. I had floor tickets...floor tickets...

LET'S GO DUCKS.

My cousin works for Air Canada. She's told me before that you have a year from the travel date to credit against another trip in these situations, so you just might be able to pull this off.

This is such needless stress for you...I've never heard of a previously-scheduled event being superseded by a game, especially a concert of this magnitude. That show is apparently one of the hottest tickets ever in Ottawa, from what I've read. Why can't they simply move the game up one day?

I'll take the blame a little higher...the NHL, and their blind quest to attract an American audience...they've bunched the schedule into a time-frame with the most Saturdays possible. Come hell or high Waters

I'd like to officially denounce any positive thing I have ever said about the Ottawa Senators. You guys were right all along. I realise it's the NHL's/venue's fault that I'm in my current predicament, but I'm going to hate the team just for the hell of it. It's much easier to stick pins into Alfredsson effigies than it is to swear at some faceless businessman.


And thanks AOD...it's comforting to hear that it might not be a total disaster. I've got my fingers crossed. I just hope the show doesn't get cancelled altogether. Thank heavens Roger has no shows on the 3rd and the 5th. I'm going out of my mind refreshing the press release page on the venue website every ten minutes...

We'll see how this series develops. I'm feeling the pressure now to support them out of patriotic obligation. As great as Alfredsson has been, I wouldn't be completely against setting his likeness on fire, or poking tiny pins in the arse of an Alfredsson doll.

That's pretty evil, and great, all at the same time

I really do feel sorry for you, because that would of course royally suck, but...wow. I think that's a little over the top.

I hope things work out for you though, that would be a total bummer.

Thanks. They still haven't done anything about it. No press releases or anything. And the phone lines in to Scotiabank Place are completely blocked. All we get is pre-recorded rubbish.

Bonochick, do you REALLY think it's over the top? Considering that we have more than likely been screwed out of two thousand dollars, plus tax? Not to mention floor tickets to what is easily THE greatest tour of 2006-2007? And all because of poor last-minute scheduling for ONE hockey game?

Okay, then...

I'll check out the local papers for you Gibson Girl and see if there's anything about it in there. We need all the Sens fans we can get!
