Thanks for that info

After last night's loss to the Flames, I think the Jets are toast. Poor goaltending has been their downfall down the stretch.
I can retire my heritage classic Jets jersey for the season. Still have my heritage classic Flames jersey and my Habs jersey in play. Haha

That would be neat.

Leafs jacked up ticket prices again for next year and they look to be fading and I don't expect them to get in to the playoffs. 7-2 loss in Florida last night and they looked horrible. Glad I'm not a season ticket holding SUCKER.
Rescue the sunken \'Good Ship Argonaut\' and restore her in 2017, PLEASE!!!!

Stay in Canada, spend in Canada!!!!!

 The double speak by saying jacking up ticket prices  is good for ticket buyers was priceless . You have to have large balls to actually use that for a reason for hiking prices with a straight face .https://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/20 ... -fans.html

Yep that will bring the prices down by hiking them up . Tell me about the rabbits George .

Could Hartford be trying to get back into the NHL?

That would be neat, indeed.

Move those Florida and Carolina teams back to places that get snow and ice, like Hartford, Cleveland, and QC.

And if it's the Islanders that move, then so be it, I guess, though for sentimental reasons (memories of Trottier, Bossy, and those dynasty years) I'd rather they stay.

Cleveland would not be a good NHL market, IMO.

Last summer, the Indians were first in their division all season and fans didn't jump on board and buy tickets until the playoffs.

I was there late August for the Jays / Indians series and on a glorious sunday afternoon, the place was only 60% full (stadium only holds 34,000) , and lots of those in attendance were jays fans. The night before, they announced just their 4th sellout of the season and that was because half the tickets were sold to blue jays fans. Their 3rd sellout of the year was the night before, also against the jays with jays fans buying many of the tickets.
So, 4 sellouts all season - 2 because of jays fans, and one was the home opener.

The economy isn't there to support 3 pro teams, let alone a 4th.

I do agree with moving the weakest Florida team to quebec city and the hurricanes elsewhere - hartford if their arena gets fixed up to today's standards.

I'm convinced Pepe Le Pew (Bettman) would rather die than see another team in Canada. In his animated/polluted mind Canadian teams are playoff rating killers - and most don't draw flies when they visit southern based American teams.

Quebec would be a mini-Winnipeg - IF THEY HAD A DECENT 15k to 16k arena.

Cleveland wouldn't support a Winnipeg or Arizona type loser - only a winner!!

Arizona/Phoenix is a crappy market - NHL-supported by TV revenues but un-loved in their local confines.

Las Vegas will be OK - not really a hockey team, but another Vegas attraction - 18000 to 20000 seats for $150 to $10 bucks - lots of companies and casinos will have a stash of NHL tickets to give away or other-wise dispose of. Could average 14,000 to 16,000 in Year 1.

Big money ticket if they make playoffs in their first decade!
WAITING FOR A  MIRACLE - 28 YEARS, COUNTING!

You don't think Quebec city's new $400,000,000 18,259 seat videotron centre is "decent"?

Well then, they'll have to wait 'til Bettman & his eunuch buddy Bill Daley are gone from the NHL head office (perhaps 4 to 7 years) :cowboy:

Leafs have moved ahead of the Bruins for 3rd in the Atlantic, providing a potential first round playoff series between Ottawa and Toronto.

A Leafs - Sens 'Battle of Ontario' series could be fun. I remember going to a few Ottawa - Leafs playoff games at the ACC back in the early 2000's. That rivalry would be neat to see in the playoffs again. But at this point with Ottawa only one point behind Montreal with a game in hand - a Habs - Leafs first round match-up is not out of the question either. Imagine the combined French - English TV ratings for that!

But first things first.  We are now 3 up on Boston with a game in hand. With 9 regular season games still to go for the Leafs - they probably need to pick up about 11 points in those games to clinch a playoff spot.

The leafs have a much better shot of defeating Ottawa than they do the a habs, who have had their number all year.

I'd rather the habs meet the leafs in round 2.
