Road Games

Well...if I can somehow convince my wife to head down to Dallas right after getting off a plane back to OKC from Cincy next month, we MIGHT get to the Stars/Canes game in Dallas...but I doubt it. 

 

Other than that, I doubt I'll catch the boys on the road at all this season.

If I recall, you made that game last year right?  Other than us losing, how did you like the Dallas experience?  I know that arena gets inundated with opposing teams' fans too.  I can't think it was a hostile crowd.

Wanted to re-kindle this thread to see if any fellow Caniacs have road plans this season.

What - exactly - are these "plans" things you speak of??

 

Welcome back surf. No plans past opening night in Raleigh just yet, although I nearly broke down and bought the Jackets game the following Tuesday along with it.

Greetings top. I hope you've had a fun and prosperous summer.  Hoping when the blades hit the ice, some of us will be able to hit the road (or skies). I wanted to make it to Barclay's this year but not sure if the Isles have a home yet??

Not sure the Isles know, either. Last recent news I've seen on it is still that the renegotiation talks began in Early May. Has anyone else seen anything since?

The last I heard the Isles were looking at Belmont NY. That would mean a few years out. Barclay's has stated that they have no plans for renovations to make the arena a more enjoyable hockey experience.

I think the Isles have two more seasons at the Barclay's  Center. After 2018/19 seasom they need a new home. New arena at Belmont LI seems to be the favored alternative but a redone Nassau Coliseum or a arena next to Citi Field have been mentioned.

I go to Stars games quite a bit...in fact, I'm headed down there for the first game of the season (which'll be Vegas's first EVER regular season game)...there's always a lot of opposing fans in the stands because of the large swath of the Metroplex...but the Stars fans are usually great and rarely nasty (alcoholics being the exception).

Thanks OBX. Did a little more digging and it looks like Barclays can terminate then, while the Isles have the option to leave after the coming season ends if they like:

 

"The team and the arena have a 25-year lease, but the Barclays Center could get out of the deal after the 2018-19 season. If the Islanders terminated the lease, they could leave after next season. The Islanders and Barclays have an unusual agreement in which the arena pays the team $53.5 million a year in exchange for business operations, which includes tickets and suite sales."

update:

 

changed the travel plans in October to include a stopover in Dallas on the 21st...soooooooo...Canes vs. Stars = TICKETS ARE MINE!!!

 

But I'm 0-2 in seeing them win at the AAC...and 1-8 overall at road games.

Well, looks like Chicago might finally get knocked off the list...January 20th vs. Isles...and then we're coming to Raleigh the next night for the Vegas game (cause it's been nearly 3 years since we were last there).  :D

I wouldn't walk across the street to be in the same building with Rags fans.

I hear ya... too much blue for my liking but I want to be a good soldier and rep the team in enemy territory whenever possible. Maybe we’ll get our first win in forever at the Garden then, if not on the 1/15 meeting.  I’ll be there with a particular Rangers fan so I’m sure she will get her share of abuse being seen with me.... with or without my Canes sweater on ??‍♂️?

Just got my tix for the 3/26 game here in DC vs the Caps. Any Caniacs our there plan to be in attendance?  Need to do a road meet-up.

There will be a bunch of Canes fans there as this is the game that the winners of this season's STM Road Trip Game drawing will be there.  I think there will be ~100 folks there.  I never win anything anymore but am excited to be going on this trip.

Look forward to seeing some Hurricane red and black at Capital One. Hoping we can “Rock the Red” for 60 minutes.

Time to bump this thread again. Got tix for Oct 5 game in Washington.  Will be crazy since it is Caps home opener, and against the team that ended their season in dramatic fashion. Hope to see some more Canes fans turn out in enemy territory.

Well that might be one more Canes game than I’ll be able to see next season...unless I can get off to Dallas on a weeknight :(

Thankfully many of the road games I want to go to are on/near weekends. Got the Isles and New Jersey again on the list. Many thanks to the schedulers  👍🏽

This season’s schedule isn’t doing me any favors like last season’s...I guess this is the trade off for me getting to see seven games last season (five on the road)

Couple years ago, I was in Washington for a visit, walking down the street wearing a canes t.shirt a guy in a Caps shirt walked by me and gave me the finger! Oh my, how sweet that game 7 was :D
