    I noticed that in June the team is travelling to Austria to play a single game against Azerbaijan. Seems like a waste of resources.

    If we assembled, and flew in a team, for a camp in canada, then flying to Azerbaijan would be a waste of resources.

    But this will be our "Call Up Fringe Euro Guys game" So expect a random roster. Like Cebara, Both Traffords, Dixon, +any youngsters like Tomori+Paton+that ManU kid

    Feel like this topic will be a factory of sadness so I'll read it later. Here's some pics (and a vid) from Azteca.

    Yup, full riot police escort up the ramps, in the stadium and on the way out. Pretty much looked like the above, and considering we are obviously far less of a rival (and far less relevant) than the US that shows how seriously they do take it down there.

    We also got a full motorcade escort back to our hotel in an armored police van which was pretty awesome.

    Mexican fans were pretty chill - before the match they all just wanted to take pictures with us so the police just were around the perimeter and it was fine. Even after the match it was just a few stray beers getting thrown at us (aka no batteries or worse). But better to be more protected than less (especially when its like 50 v 75,000)

    There was also a guy just below our section who was wearing, for some unknown reason, an early 2000's Phoenix Coyotes jersey. We kept trying to get him to turn around but he definitely had no idea what he was wearing.

    i bought 5 hockey jerseys (flyers, preds, sabres, stars, coyotes) for 1000pesos (100$) last time i was in mexico.........
    they definitely have no clue of what its worth or what it is.

    (i sold the preds jersey in montreal for 50$ to some fan...............)

    CSA refs gift their favourite team with an extra minute in ET, on top of 4 minutes of unwarranted extra time, to give them the Voyageurs Cup over Vancouver.

    ...not that Ousted and Waston had anything to do with the collapse whatsoever. Nope. None whatsoever...
