    I don't know where to put this. So some mod can lock it or move it.
    Between Q, MJAHL, and AUS, I get to 50-60 games a year. Wife doesn't get upset untill I start going to High School or Jr C games :dunno: . Just wondering how many games below NHL most prospects watchers get to? Sorry if this has been beat to death and no, I don't want a medal ;)

    I don't go to too many, usually I do a 5 game road trip every year to see the Hamilton Bulldogs. But I get to see a ton on tv. I have directv, so with CSTV, ESPNU and the Fox sports, I get a ton of NCAA games, sometimes 5 games on friday, every Minnesota game, lots of WCHA and HE through NESN. This year I had a subscription to see all of Cornell's home games, and now with webcasts I saw around 40 of Hamilton's games at 6 bucks a pop, plus around 5-6 games of Long Beach Ice Dogs (ECHL).

    I watch all the Habs games on center ice plus some other NHL games but not too much. I usually watch every Hab prospect, so I get someone to tape games in Moscow, usually get to see 5 or more a year. You can buy lots of RSL games off ebay, great quality for 15 bucks a dvd. I've seen a couple games of Euro Cup, RSL playoffs, and the Euro Championships between the league winners (saw Karpat vs Omsk and Karpat vs Dynamo)

    Plus with webcast of every WHL and OHL plus several free webcasts of QMJHL and NCAA, I got to see a lot of Tri City (boring hockey), London (exciting hockey), Petes, Guelph, Lewiston, Dartmouth (ECAC), Clarkson (ECAC), and to a lesser extent, Drummondville, Drakkar, Bathurst.

    If there's not a Hab prospect I try and keep an eye on draft eligble prospects for either the upcoming draft or the next years draft.

    I've got a collection of VHS-DVD of between 100-150 games of NCAA, CHL, RSL, FNL, SEL, AHL, ECHL, WJC's (U-20's, U-18's and 1 U-17), WC's, remax games, Euro Cup and Champions, telis cup.

    26 or 27 NHL games a year live. Quite a few more than that number on television.

    I average about 2-3 live games per week. I mostly watch games in the Swedish second tier league, Swedish under 20 league and the Swedish under 18 league.

    I normally try to get to 10-15 games a year here in Halifax, unfortunetly this year the Mooseheads didn't have the best of years. Enjoyable hockey though.

    every U of Minnesota game on tv, plus other ncaa
    1 OHL game, Saginaw
    1 USHL game
    1 NAHL game

    I rarely go to NHL games any more. I think I went to one this year.

    I go to at least one Gopher home game every week, and sometimes both. I also try to go on at least one road trip each year (not including St. Cloud, Duluth, and Mankato).

    I'll also go to a handful of high school games, and the state tournament, but that's about it.

    I wish I could see CHL games, because it seems that is where a lot of the action is. I also need to get an NCAA subscription to see more college hockey.

    Most of my hockey viewing is on TV but live I would say I attend on average 2-3 NHL games and 6-10 WHL games.

    Every Vancouver Giants home game, plus a few road games here and there. Usually either Everett, Seattle, Kelowna or Kamloops. I usually go to at least 10 or 20 junior A and junior B games as well. Once Chilliwack comes into the WHL next season I'm sure I'll be going to even more games.

    2-3 games/week. Basically only U20 (SuperElit) and U18-games. This coming season will be more games though as i will se lots of tier2-games (Allsvenskan) as well.

    This past year I got to roughly 35, all Penguins games.


    Now, with going to college in Montana...it's going to be alot harder. I would like to get to games in Calgary and Edmonton. Maybe see a game in Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Red Deer...maybe head out to Vancouver...

    Regardless, it'll probably be under 5...just too far to travel to get to any teams.

    Went to five Avs regular season games and one playoff game (so far). I typically attend about a half dozen DU games, though recent success has made tickets harder to get that I'm finally putting down money to get a half-season ticket package. I watch tons of NHL, some NCAA, a few AHL, CHL and Canadian junior games through Dish and Bell ExpressVu. Let's just say I'd love to kiss whomever came up with DVR/PVR technology :bow:

    I have been to 54 O.H.L. games this year (1 more to go in London),
    3 Junior B games), and 1 N.H.L. game. I do not know if I will hit 60.
