Caps, Rangers, Ducks & Oilers fans might want 2 check fall fares 2 Europe. hear teams in talks 2 b among 6 to skate in 11-12 Premier Games
...hope this isn't the Rangers consolation prize for not getting a Winter Classic in 2012.
...not a big fan of the NHL starting the season in Europe would rather be able to watch the season opener at night not noon. Games almost seem like preseason.
Manchester would be good, everyones friendlier up north and the beers cheaper! Theres an NHL size arena too but they only use it as a concert venue for the last 12 years or so-be good to put it to proper use for once
I guess if you're a Rangers fan from Europe you'd be all for this. Makes sense with MSG renovations as well.
I'm all for this! :) Only saw the rangers once since I've only been to NY once. Them coming here to Europe would improve my chances of seeing them again!
Also games at noon means that I don't have to stay up 'till 1 am to see the game starting. I never get to see the end of such games! (except this week against the canucks, too much adrenaline to sleep!)
Bring the rangers to UK! We've only had it the once and it was kings v ducks, not worth the trip to london!
Starting the season in Europe sucks but it makes sense from the Garden's point of view - it will give them an nextra week or two to get things in order following the first summer of the renovation. It will also mitigate the inevitable ticket price rise to season ticket holders somewhat, as they will only have 40 home games to pay for instead od 41.
