  1. Can't kill you but would get the bartender that served you a $500 fine plus a $5,000 fine to the RBC Center so I ask you this, is it worth them raising ticket prices to cover ALE fines so that you can have champagne on new years eve?

    Last year they didn't run kids off but obviously they didn't serve them anything alcoholic. But like Ghouliegirl stated, it was really crowded and the crowd kept getting drunker by the minute so it wasn't particularly pleasant.

    Nope, i think we pay enough for tickets now to have them increase for unecessary fines.

    You lucked out on the drunks. I had a drunk lady trying to get me to stay as I was trying to leave. :lol:


  2. I went one year, and it was so packed that you couldn't even move, let alone get to the bar. I lasted about 5 minutes before getting just disgusted and leaving. I have to really think if I would go again.

    I will say this, I'm sure ALE will be out in full force that night. If you are underage drinking be careful. The establishment/bartender can get fined if they are caught giving alcohol to underage people. I used to work in a bar, so I really would hate to see the bartender/RBC Center/Canes get fined. I would suspect that they would card just about anyone that doesn't look like they are under 60 since there will probably be underaged people there.


  3. If the players have given up on Laviolette's style of play, how do you explain the run late last season that almost landed this team in the playoffs? It was the same style of play at that time, it was just that the older players were out of the way on the ice and in the locker room and players like Gleason, Staal, and Ward were able to step up and become the unquestioned leaders of the team. I think that is what is needed now. It's time for the old guard to step away and let the new guard take complete control of this hockey team. It's time to purge the roster of players like Brind'Amour and Whitney.

    Two words, River Rats, IMO. They played with the passion and determination that is so desperately needed right now. I do agree with you that Staal did step up his play when Brindy went out, and he needs to do that again now.

    I'm all for doing to Brind'Amour what Dallas did to Modano. They took the C from him and gave it to Morrow since Morrow was the new face of the Stars. I see no problem in taking that C away from Brindy and giving it to Staal. I know most won't agree with me on this, but maybe giving him that C to wear will motivate him in a big way.


  4. Thanks for those kind words Oilers Fan. I love it when you guys come to the RBC Center. I always end up talking with a fan and getting a picture with them. I'm looking foward to our next game. I watched your game the other night and it was very exciting. I'm a big Sheldon Souray fan anyway. :)

    Good luck with your hockey season this year! I do agree, it would be great to see our guys matched up again for the SCF!!


  5. I agree...it brought a tear to my eye too. I applaud everyone at the RBC Center for honoring this man. I am former military, and never saw action like he did. When they showed him on the jumbotron, I just about lost it. He will always stay in my mind.

    I think it was fantastic that they took the time to honor him.


  6. Unless the prices went way up, last year it was $60.00 for the Skate with the Canes tickets. This event is normally done around January. I think last year it was either mid or end of January.

    Then in January/February time frame you have Casino Night. Last year tickets for that event were $200.00. Not sure if that price will remain the same or not. That is a nice event...usually semi-formal and you get to gamble with stormy bucks, and mingle with the players. I've been to the last two and they are loads of fun.


  7. The latest update from the Cane's STH Office, all the ticket packages were not shipped Wednesday. What was shipped Wednesday was sent "two day delivery", the balance was shipped Thursday with "next day" delivery but they don't have a tracking number for that group.

    I did call FedEx and they show no shipments either two day or next day to my area. HMMMMM.

    That so isn't cool! You should find out where the FedEx dude lives and "soil" his bathroom! :lol:

    They better be at the house when I get home, or I will be one hostile lady! My mom won't do, so I will. :P


  8. unless someone receives there tickets soon then I am starting to think the Canes dropped the ball on this (again)!!

    Man, I hope not. We haven't even gotten an email to track our tickets. We were told that we were going to get one yesterday. I think the ouija board told me that email will arrive on Monday! :lol: As of right now, no tickets. Not sure if we are going to run home at lunch and check. Hate to run home and be completely disappointed if they are not on the front porch.


  9. They joked saying that the black made them look bigger. Timmy looked huge. I was like WOW when I saw him. I am digging the Back in Black song for us. I wasn't going to the carnival until later, but it looks as if I will get there so I can look and get me a new jersey. I wonder if they will have any player numbers available, without having to send them to get stitched. I want to have it for the Oct. 13 game.


  10. Hi Ghouliegirl

    my mom and i are planning to go to the Flyers vs. Hurricanes in Philly on

    December 11, 2008. i cant wait to see my all time favorite player in the

    whole wide world!!

    so speaking of jerseys, i already have 3 of Joni jerseys but 2 of them are signed!!

    Need to get the other one sign. I will be getting Joni's Hurricanes jersey and i cant

    wait!!

    did you know that Ruutu and Joni are very good friends?

    I know that they both will be very good this year, dont you agree?

    Yeah, I heard that they are really good friends, so I'm sure that came into play with him coming here. I'm really excited to see how he does. Ruu was awesome. I was waiting for him to come out the day he got traded for warm ups, but he wasn't there, then right before the National Anthem was sung, he comes running out. That was super cool to me. :)

    I bet those two will be together a lot. That's cool, it's always nice to have a friend in the area when you are traded.


  11. HI EVERYONE!!!!

    EVEN THOUGH I AM A HUGE DIE HARD FLYERS FAN, I WILL ALWAYS LOVE

    JONI PITKANEN!! I MISS HIM SO VERY MUCH!!

    I KNOW HE IS A GOOD PLAYER EVEN THOUGH HE IS STILL YOUNG.

    I WAS VERY FORTUNE TO MEET JONI MANY TIMES WHEN HE WAS WITH THE FLYERS.

    BELIEVE ME, HE IS A VERY NICE GUY!!

    SO EVERYONE, PLEASE GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO SHOW YOU WHAT HE CAN DO!!

    GO JONI PITKANEN!!!! :D:D

    I already plan to have a sign for him opening night. :) I have to say Ruutu will be my fave. I already have his jersey and it is signed.
