Nassau Coliseum. Can't beat watching an NHL game in an AHL arena. I wonder what they think when they go to every other modern arena on the continent and have to go home to that hole.

Of all of those, I have only been to Toronto, but it was amazing. Their fans are passionate (though at this point, borderline psychotic from their recent failures) and fun to be around. Plus, while your in Toronto, you can visit the Hockey Hall of Fame, which is really cool and every hockey fan should go to at least once in their lifetime.

Maple Laffs for sure and their on-ice products will certainly make you laugh out loud.

What?

One of my most memorable games was seeing the Panthers/Sabres in South Beach.

Seats right up against the glass in a beautiful arena, then going to a Fins game the next day and just spending the rest of the week in South Beach.

GREAT TRIP.

Why on earth is Calgary up there? Yeah they sell out their games but they must be the quietest fans on earth. You would never think 19,000 fans can be so timid and quiet when their team scores.

Does it count as being "timid" when, after the home team scores, half a fanbase asks themselves, "Should I or shouldn't I chant 'You Suck!' toward the opposing team right now? Would 'You Suck!' be an accurate reflection of the current state of affairs concerning the score of this particular game and the up-to-the-minute standings? Will it hurt the opposing team's feelings? What will other teams' fans think of us if they see this on TV? Will they think we're a bunch of rude and crass caterwaulers? Will they think we're uneducated nitwits if the opposing team is winning at this point in the game or ahead of us in the standings at this point in the season? Good heavens, what about the children!? What would Oprah do? Oh ... wait ... the song is over. Nevermind. ... Should I say it next time?"

Don't know about the others, but if you go to Calgary, you can mix in a ski trip in Banff and play tourist about town. The scoreboards in the Saddledome have real flames, up in the nosebleed seats you really feel the heat. And they really mean it when they talk about the Sea of Red, almost everybody wears red.

Of course you could come to Lowell or Trenton, you're guaranteed to get good seats and you can see Devils prospects! :whistling:

I think I am just going to go to Montreal again.. :)

Montreal is kick ass. I love the way the cute young waitresses there always say "Bonjour!" so politely and with that awesome accent before the dumb expression on my face gives away the fact I don't parlay that vous so good. :D
