Calgary Flames fan and am going to be coming down for the draft. Was hoping someone could help me out on a good hotel nearby the rink. Unfortunately my account won't allow me to post a new topic, so I posted on this thread and was hoping you guys could help out. I'd provide an update on the Flames, but there is nothing of note.

would recommend staying in NYC and taking a train for draft. although hilton by penn station is supposed to be ok. i don't think the new hotel being built next to the arena will be ready.

If we somehow got the 1st overall, I'd really be pulling for Lou to take Nathan MacKinnon, I couldn't be too upset with Seth Jones, but we need scoring and MacKinnon is gonna be a Franchise forward.

Why MacKinnon over Drouin? Drouin is looking to be the better player now.

Personally id pick drouin based on what i saw of him and how he topped mackinon in his junior team and in team canada. but mackinnon may fit our system more though.

Isn't there a holiday inn right across the river, it might be Kearny at that point? It's a couple miles from the arena maybe, but if maybe if he's looking for a cheaper option than the Hilton. Staying NYC will be more expensive I'd imagine. Though it will offer much more in the way of stuff nearby to do if the idea is to see NYC and go to the draft, lol.

Hopefully at the draft the Devils will be able to sell off players for picks in this draft.  If this draft is as deep as 03 and has that kind of potential we could be set up for a serious resurgence in the coming years.

lol, I think most Devils fans will be gone by then considering they'll have two top forty picks and then skip the third round, so nothing for the next sixty picks.

There's the Gateway Hilton, the Robert Treat Hotel, and the Courtyard Marriott. Of these, the Marriott is closest, being literally next door to the arena. The Hilton and the Robert Treat are each about three or four blocks away. There's also a Comfort Inn on McCarter Highway or a Hampton Inn right across the river in Harrison, but those aren't within walking distance IMO. After that you'd be looking at one of the many airport Hotels.

lol.  please bet with me on next year.  you can take teams based on goalie save percentages and i'll take corsi tied.


Haha you were the guy in 2012 that was adamant all season that the rangers would drop in the standings..we are talking many long, detailed posts about how they couldn't keep it up. They go on to win the presidents trophy and fall 2 gms short of the SCF lol. Bobrovsky is playing better than he has in the past, but who is to say he hasn't turned the corner in his career. He prob hasn't but the jackets are winning, so up to now he's been playing great.

Just to clarify, the Canucks won the presidents trophy, not the rangers.

well look how they've done this year. Seems like he was right. And they only got to the ECF because they played two awful teams on the way there and barely won basically in coin tosses

No, he wasn't right. It was about last season, not this current one. Ottawa is far from awful.
And my mistake, Vancouver won presidents, rags still ended up top team in east.

You do realize the Rangers changed around about 50% of their forward core from last year to this year?  They completely changed over their team when they lost all their quality depth in the Nash trade and in FA.  Then they basically got a re-boot when they traded an underperforming Gaborik to get quality depth back and bought Clowe at Neiman Marcus prices.  And voila, they look like last year's team again.

I think you're forgetting how mediocre they were in the playoffs. And what they've had these guys for a few games? Give it a chance. Do you really think Derek Brassard and Ryan Clowe are that good?
