    Glad to see they are using the Garden moniker again.

    Yeah, they bought the rights and announced the switch back in March...the deal just didn't go into effect until July 1. That gave them a good month for the deal to expire in 20 years (July 1 can't be during Bruins or Celtics season), time to announce he change, make a new logo, change signage, etc...

    TD started as Toronto Dominion. Is this a plot by the Leafs? KMaybe its revenge for Khristich.

    That’s just too long. I’m sure Hab and Leaf fans will have no trouble shortening that one up to “The Toronto Gardenâ€. Man, those poor Bruin fans, what a kick in the teeth…
     
  10. It'll be especially fun when we are beating the Leafs in an arena with their name in it. :D

    are you kidding me ?

    I've been waiting years for the return of "The Gahden"....The only bank whatever crap you'll hear is from announcers..
    Even when it was The Boston Garden..it was just The Gahden.

    It's The Gahden.....

    No question that Bruin fans will think of it as The Gahden. But the fans up north might have other ideas. You’ll have to keep your eyes peeled; I can see a doused flame war or two in your future.

    It would have been cool if Boston Pizza had become the new sponsors.

    The Boston Pizza Garden...

    Yea I hear from everyone it's not a good restaurant at all.

    I guess thats what you get when you have Howie Mandel as your celebrity posterboy.

    I don't mind BP's. They are pretty good around this area (Edmonton).

    They're coming to Quebec... building one not five minutes away from my place, actually (and four others to open in the next couple of months)...

    You know, because Quebec doesn't have enough Pizza places. Meh, I'll stick to Pizza Como (since I live on the South Shore and it's the best pizza in Montreal anyway).. :handclap:
