About three years ago my Wife and I decided that we were going to watch the Oilers play at every arena in the league. Unfortunately we were unable to got watch the Atlanta Thrashers before they were sold and moved to Winnipeg. We have visited 5 NHL arenas so far including Rexall Place.
I am totally stoked to be going to a Canadian city this year that isn’t Calgary. Especially one that is as pumped to have Hockey in their city and probably more excited, than most Canadian cities right now. To get your team back after a 15 year hiatus, would definitely be a reason to celebrate! And now that Winnipeg is in a fight for the play-offs, it should be a great atmosphere when I am wearing the enemies colours. My Son & I will be sporting the Warface masks that purchased for this game…so if you see us on TV be sure and send me a tweet letting me know we made it on the broadcast.
I have been to Detroit, Boston, and Long Island New York along with of course Calgary and Edmonton. Boston being the nicest rink of all of the arenas that I have visited, I am hoping that the MTS Center being a newer rink, that it will nice inside.
This will be my last post for about a week. I will be following the Trade Deadline from my cell phone and I will be tweeting some photos from the game. Don’t forget to check out the live trade deadline chat here on Monday.
GO Oilers GO!
