I have had serious thoughts about going to the game but nose bleed seats start $300 a pop. I'm not sure if I want to drop that on seeing nothing but pens and ovi and a very few other random players market their egos and show off crazily. Granted, seeing ovi shoot would be AMAZING. I heard you can't even see the puck going to the net. But as it is, Nick is the only Wing going and honestly I hope he doesn't go somehow so he can rest.
Overall, I hate how everything was set up this year and not to mention the jersey situation is rather odd.
However, this probably be the only time this event comes to NC.
all-star game is in raleigh.. which means you will witness the most weekend canes fans EVER.

If you LOVE HOCKEY and want a chance to see a lot of talent in one place all at the same time, go for it.
That is the question you need to ask yourself.

There are a lot better things you could do with 300 dollars.

With that said, as was already touched on, if this is something YOU want to do, then do it, it's your money and your decision, so follow your gut...
All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:
Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Money on the board! Current total: $5
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James

I agree that cost for Winter Classic would be worth it, especially if it were the Wings here at home.
Site duped my reply for some reason... Since it's here, I guess I'll mention that I paid not too much over that for tickets to the Winter Classic in Wrigley. That was worth the money. An ASG wouldn't be in my opinion.
You can do that and some very good food for $200 at the Toast
$300 for the whole weekend would be tempting. $300 for a single game, and not good seats at that, is just not a good deal. For $300 you should get a meet and greet and wine and cheese and some little cracker things on a tray with weird leafy stuff coming out of some sort of dip.
I would say if you really want to see Ovie you could always get tickets when they come to play the Hurricanes, that would probably be cheaper.

But I really think you should go. It's a once or twice in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the best players of this generation all together at once.
If it were me, it would only come down to the money. If you have the money to spare, I say do it. If money's tight, I certainly wouldn't stop paying bills to go watch it.
