I feel you as a fellow Vic resident. The expense of a Canucks game is just too much for us Island folk. The ferry costs are ridiculous and only going up, and you have to factor in travel, food and hotel expenses. Not to mention time is of the essence and you are entirely dependent on the ferry schedule. 

 

 

Honestly its too much for the average Vancouver folk as well.

The cost of tickets unto itself is not worth it .... travel, lodging, all the extra stuff that out-of-towners shell out .... just insane.

Right, thanks. ;)

 

I was born in 1725. Still watch games via a sextant, the stars, sea, and telescope.

I would argue that Island fans have more opportunity than us Rural BC fans (no option for preseason either). It is much easier (and cheaper) to walk onto the ferry then bus to the game then drive for hours to Vancouver, find a place to stay, etc.

 

Although I always look forward to my 1 (or 2 if I am lucky) games a year that I see in person.

 

I hope people who live in Vancouver appreciate the opportunity they have when it comes to live NHL hockey - even us in rural BC have to appreciate our team being closer than some fans in other provinces, countries etc.

I appreciate it. I spent ten years in Kelowna and was always bummed that going to a game was an eeaaassy thousand bucks all in.

 

We live about a ten minute walk from rogers now and go to a handful of games every year. 

 

What I love most though is how often I run into the guys just walking around downtown and get to have casual conversations. And Petey living in my building last season is hard to complain about. It was fun chatting with him a few times...even though I never got the invite just to hang out...was kinda hoping for that ;-)

As drone technology improves we will soon have several passenger transport drones from downtown Vic direct to Rogers Arena multiple runs each day that are able to carry 200 passengers at a time. 

 

At least I think this will happen soon :blink:

Interested in seeing how Quinn defends. Don’t recall him doing that badly in his 5 games last year. Is my recollection correct?

 

That 3 on 3 OT shift with Brock and EP rather dominates my memory. ;)

Sutter, Pearson and Edler are wearing the A’s.

For anyone that thought there was a snowball's chance in hell of Pettersson getting the C, he isn't even wearing an A for an exhibition game.

Really looking forward to seeing Petey and Ferland together. Hoping they cause some serious havoc in the Oilers zone! Go Canucks Go!

Well I was debating on getting some Hagen Dazs ice cream from the local store but since Quinn and Petey are playing tonight I think I'll celebrate.

 

Random Thoughts......

He has played 71 games in the NHL.  

He didn’t have a chance anyway.
