So is it any surprise that other NHL teams are looking into outdoor games?
Edmonton drew a crowd of over 56,000. It’s like almost four games in one day.
The outdoor games, while pure torture for the players, I’m sure, could be a good way to infuse some money into financially underperforming Canadian teams.
Like the Flames.
Oh. And apparently Patrick Roy wasn’t in goal for Montreal because he’s concentrating on his junior team. I thought it was because once you demand a trade out of Montreal, you never wear maroon again.
One more. Supposedly, and according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, some Rangers were a bit pissed Mark Messier was playing in the alumni game.
