    true, or they have several people in their group.

    Personally, I'd be just as happy to watch the Jets skate around with the Cup from the high rafters :thumbu:

    Trust me when I say I have visualized this. The prices are steep in the 4th round but the value of that experience doesn’t have a price tag on it for me at least.

    That being said I am pretty sure it would be just as great watching from the P7’s. How crazy would that building be?

    Was up against the glass just off the blue line for game 4 against the stupid Ducks. The White out was a thing of beauty. Looking forward to the White outs for years to come with this club :D

    I did just that in 1976. Row 10 at the blue line. Watched Bobby, Ulf,Anders & company demolish the Aeros 9-1 in the clinching game.

    Every once in awhile I try to visualize it, but the experience would be one of those lifetime events. And I want to see it from the same seat I have sat in since the 1st exhibition game off the 2011 pre-season.

    Grease the lampposts, Philly style. That funnelator in front of the library is going down. :laugh:

    These are pretty similar to the Sens prices from last year. Not too bad. Unlike Ottawa, we'll sell out for sure :D

    I'm imagining the thursday midnight rally before the actual announcement, except with about a million times more people and madness.

    This made me rewatch some old clips of the May 2011 rallies and subsequent 'Return' announcement, I still get goose bumps. Also threw in an old Save the Jets rally video to remember HOW MUCH IT SUCKED to attend that and then lose the team. Perspective and all, for when I feel grumpy that beer now costs 10 bucks at hockey games etc.

    If we had a 20,000 seat arena sitting out in Headingley, I'll bet we wouldn't sell out either.

    Did anyone else notice in the email that they said there would be special playoff beers for $14.50?

    Or how about watching in the street as they parade it around the Air Canada Center as the tears flood the ice.

    Ya, I think we would, even for much of the regular season. I'm in the minority of people who hate downtown. I'm not sure what the percentages are.....but we've got a ton of rural STH too.

    Actually if they had good access to the Perimeter I’d wager that we’d still do well.

    After checking distances, Lorette might be a better approximation of where it would be relative to downtown.

    This must be the first year that the Jets, Moose, Goldeyes and Bombers are all serious threats to win a Championship in the same year.

    It’s on TV
    I get the live atmosphere thing... but I’m cheap.
    Beer is cheaper at home.
    Bathroom lines shorter.
    And you don’t have to high five a total drunk stranger that has halitosis and smells like ass wearing a crappy replica jersey.

    Just kidding to each their own:laugh:

    RELAX

    I hear you. If it wasn't for the better half pushing me into getting playoff tickets, I would have opted out of our group game draft. It won't break my heart if I draw the last possible game in every round.

    But you were correct that beer is cheaper (and better) at home. And then there's the whole wear white thing. White is such a demanding colour. I just can't pull it off. Why couldn't we have gone for a blackout originally? My persona is so much better suited to black. :laugh:

    It's not that far to the arena in Ottawa. Roughly the distance from the Forks to the west side of Headingley or the St. FX turnoff. Plus the 417 is a legitimate access controlled freeway that runs through the city with a 100km speed limit - it's not like you'd have to hump your way past 50 red lights down Portage Avenue at 60km. However, a fairly big part of Ottawa's population lives east of Downtown. So imagine an arena in St. Francis Xavier and half the fans are coming from Transcona (but you've got a freeway between them). Say 40 minutes with no traffic; 1 hour+ with traffic. And there IS traffic before and after games. The drawback of the freeway is that there's really only one way in and out of there too - so it gets backed up. But if you live downtown or west in Ottawa, or Barhaven or Kanata, it's 15-40 minutes...so not bad at all. There's also pretty decent dedicated transit service on game nights.

    So, while the arena location in Ottawa isn't ideal for many, it's still not bad for lots of others (Ottawa and burbs downtown and west probably approaches Winnipeg's population). The problem is that Ottawa's traditionally been kind of a ****ty sports town. A lot of people move there for federal government jobs - and they bring their former allegiances with them. And if you think it's weird to see locals today cheering the Leafs or Habs in Winnipeg, imagine growing up without an NHL team in the shadow of Montreal and Toronto - so lots of native Ottawans aren't really Sens fans. So stick the arena in a slightly inconvenient location, put in a meddling owner who's actively ****ing up the team and mix in a mostly ambivalent local population and you get empty seats at playoff games.
