Favorite teams? 





My two favorite teams are the Philadelphia Flyers and the Vancouver Canucks. Flyers are #1 to me, though...

Favorite players?

Unfortunately, both teams are paying a kings ransom to their goalies who are on long contracts, and neither are really earning their keep...

But, my 2 favorite players currently are Jaromir Jagr (#68) and Claude Giroux (#28) - both of the Flyers...

Well only Hockey I have ever been to was the Areos so guess that would be my favorite team.

Well, the Aeros actually made it to their version of the Stanley Cup last season, but they lost. so, #2 team.

Around 99 or 2000 I looked at going to see a game. But, I wanted to sit by the glass at the time (now, I like a little higher up). The tickets for that were high enough to discourage me at the time. Too high for a minor league team.

Now that I am really into it hockey heavily, I still prefer the NHL. Although, admittedly, I do go watch Texas A&M hockey here. Its not really that great. But, its local and only $7.50 per ticket...

I'm watching the Canucks vs Blues games from last night - as they played almost the same time as the Flyers did. So, thank god for DVRs :)

I am enjoying my NHL tv package - can watch EVERY Canucks and every Flyers game :)

Well the game we went to my boss got tickets from an owner of another company.   We had some great tickets and free parking too.

I got see 2-3 Stars games a season. I do not like the Stars, but I try to pick games where they play teams I'd like to see.

I was gonna go see them play the Canucks in February - but I'm going to Phili to see a game soon instead :)

Blues beat the stars last night.  Actually got to watch some of the game b/c of the new NBC channel.

Yes, they renamed the Versus Channel to the NBC Sports channel. They play 2-3 NHL games a week on the channel, sometimes more. The playoffs and Stanley Cup games show up there.

The Stars were #1 for the first month, and then have dropped down and down. Still, this is their best season in a while, but not surprised they lost...

Flyers vs the Wild tonight at 6pm, and then the Canucks at 9pm. I'll have to DVR the Canucks. I can't stay up that late due to work. I'll watch it tomorrow. I think the Canucks play LA Kings

Next season, I may have to get the NHL package to catch more Blues/Devils game.  I do like that NBC is showing more hockey, b/c I like listening to Doc call games.  The only downside is having to listen to Pierre's commentary during those games.  I really can't stand him.

I hate watching the non high definition games on my HDTV. Sometimes, they don't do the feed in HD. Sometimes they do. However, it is typically the other teams feed whenever I watch the Flyers or the Canucks. I like the announcers they use on the home channel for the Canucks. I REALLY hate some of the ones for the other teams.

I saw a game against the Blues last week - I really hate the announcers for the Blues.

As for the tv package - I almost didn't get it because I knew I'd be tied to the tv so much. Last nightw as a rare night - as I had no games to watch. Even if there are no games tomorrow, I'll have tonights Canucks game to watch when I get home tomorrow.

I DO plan to get the package next season too. I won't make the deal to not shoot for 3 months to pay for it, but I will ask for it as an early christmas present  :thumbsup1:
