They had a second round for today, all crappy seats, but I scored two for March 6th! Was at JLA at 5:30 this morning, was number 25 in line, so I was the very last person in the first round of people allowed to buy tickets.
As an added bonus, I waited in line for 3 hours with Mike and Terrence Sawchuck and their wives. Yes, THAT Sawchuck. Was flipping awesome for me, but I can't believe the Wings don't treat the family of arguably the greatest goalie of all time better.
Looks like the Wings moved east in the nick of time. Preds are forcing Hawks fans to buy a ticket to a non-Hawks game if they want to see the Hawks play in Nashville. Seems to me this is going to backfire on them. Looks like revenue sharing and Wings and Hawks fans being the only reason that team has lasted this long isn't enough for them. It also seems to me that this is going to have a very negative effect on the local businesses as well.
Is it me or is this a "What the hell are they thinking" move?
I agree Shanny was great and I was pleasantly surprised at how seamlessly he fit in here right away, but I think the bar is set pretty damn high for sweaters in the rafters and he just doesn't quite make it.
You know, if they were selling the ice when they won a couple of years ago, I'd kinda understand it, what with breaking the Cup drought. If they were selling ice that they actually won the Cup on, I'd kinda sorta understand that. This is nothing other than end-of-season ice.
