You should.

It's soooo much better in person than on TV.

No? They're awesome. I love going to hockey games much more than watching on tv.

Unless it's playoff time and then seeing them play in a crowded amped up bar, that's fun, too.

Agreed.

I enjoy watching the games on TV, but if there's a chance I can see it live, I'm there.

Especially playoffs - those are so exciting!

A)Leafs/Canadiens is one of the biggest hockey rivalries around, dating back to the Original Six days.

B)It's very likely a Sat night game which makes it even *more* difficult to get tickets - you literally *can't* buy a Sat night Leafs home game ticket, believe me I've tried!

C)Leafs tickets are harder than hell to come by in general, so even shit seats will go pretty high.

Yeah, Capitols should be better this year. Ovechkin is a Hero.

I forgot to add D)Montreal is only 6 hours away, so the influx of their fans (whether from Montreal itself or closer to TO) makes it even harder...

Is April aka LMPA still around? How far a drive from DTW to Toronto? And who are the Wing's rivals, Chicago?

Those crazy Montreal fans drove down to Long Island and commandeered a whole section of the Coliseum last year. They were awesome. And the year before that a groupd from Vancouver (I think) did the same thing. They began singing "Why Can't We Be Freinds" to the Islander's fans. lol. Canada.

Wings/Avalanche had a bitter rivalry going for a few years, but I think that's died down.

Toronto and Chicago, too, Beav, are rivals of Detroit's.

One of the few tickets that are harder to get for the Leafs is TO/Buffalo, given how close the two cities are - I learned that the time I tried to get Sat night tickets (about 5 years ago when I was dating a Sabres fan) for one of those

Detroit's about a 4 hour drive from TO (not including time to cross the border *g*)

Oh, I didn't even think of Buffalo....probably because I never think of Buffalo. I always forget it's in the same state as I am. I'll check them out too. That's near TO.

True story about how dumb I am -

I had to go to a few NE cities for business, and was gonna wrap it up in NYC and stay for a few days.

So, my last stop before NYC was Buffalo, to visit an affiliate of ours up there, an affiliate which no longer exists, incidentally.

Anyway, my contact there picks me up at the airport, and we're driving to his office, and I'm talking to him but also looking out the window and asking myself "Why are there so many NY state license plates here???" before it finally dawns on me that I'm in NY state. Fucking idiot.
