Honestly, I go to the game to watch the game and by the 3rd period. the staggering drunks get to be a little annoying (last game there was a woman who was trying to push through the line up back to our seats, not understanding that you had to wait for a whistle...she had two glasses of wine and, clearly, they were #19 & #20. Major spillage and she was tuned out). Giving the drunks more time to refuel doesn't really appeal to me. And if security is worried about trouble makers, giving them more line up/beer buying time doesn't support that.

I love fun and do enjoy a beer or two, but I feel that giving more time for line ups is catering to those who don't come prepared to watch the game or that isn't their first priority. I'm in my seats, waiting, so the extra time is just longer for me to have to do so.

Not meaning to sound like a snob but I'd rather have the game the focus, not the concession stands.

Yeah, because during intermissions, I find myself asking why we can't see more Tim Hortons commercials.

Why would I want more not-hockey time in between my hockey?

Three minutes is a lifetime when you have the channel on Sportsnet. I don't want Doug MacLean yelling through my TV set one second longer.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

A bit off the thread topic here, but this reminded me of a great story told to me by a friend.

Several years ago, he attended a Canucks game and after enduring a longer than usual lineup for between period beers, he was hurrying back to his seat. (The game had already started and he didn't want to miss too much)

Unfortunately for him, he was following an elderly gentleman who had obviously had one (or six) too many. Every time he tried to sneak past, the old guy would lurch to the other side of the passage, spilling copious amounts of beer in the process. After a few minutes of trailing the overly inebriated fellow, (who apparently was practicing the Dressage) Dan saw his chance and squeezed past....

...as he reached the seating area, he turned for one last look at the man he had been following and immediately recognized...

...Howie Meeker...

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!
