I didn't to post this as a thread because it's really just a question. I have friend who lives in Washington, DC. He's been watching a lot of hockey and wants to go to his first game, but can't stomach/afford Capitals pricing even normally, let alone the Finals. I've been checking out alternatives that might have better pricing like the AHL and NCAA Division 1 teams, but Washington is like a hole of hockey. The nearest AHL teams appear to be in Southern Pennsylvania and I've stopped paying attention to the NCAA, but do not see any decent teams in the area for that either.

He wants to pay less than $100 for a ticket, wants to see decent hockey (he knows he's not going to see matured Datsyuks and proper Finnish goaltenders, but what is there that's within fifty miles that can fill the hole? I guess I'm asking even if there is such a thing. Any help would be great, even if just a PM. I don't want to derail the thread, but funding decent hockey discussion and legitimate knowledge outside of SAS is obviously difficult.

Agreed. I followed it more this year than I probably have since the 04-05 lockout and it's been a blast. It's so fun to go to games, everyone should do it.

Good job to Bathurst taking the memorial. Even the Acadians win sometimes.

next year there's going to be a new NAHL team in Baltimore (specifically Odenton), and while it's junior hockey that league is a) very good quality, b) affordable, and c) a place to see future stars and seriously good goaltending (for whatever reason it produces better goalies than the "tier 1" American junior league, the USHL, according to the college people I've spoken to).

The Marlies probably laid their most comprehensive turd of the season, but I guess they at least only lost 2-1?

Yeah they looked really rough, lots of dumb penalties in the 2nd period. That's okay. Let's bring it home in 6 so that it can happen with me there in person

I managed to drive 3 hours down to cedar park to see game 3, which....I wasn't super pleased with the result until a friend made the same trip to see game 5. Put the loss I saw in perspective.

Honestly, I liked the experience enough that I'm gonna look into doing it again next season. Was a lot of fun.

Pretty fitting the only game 7 of the playoffs shows up for the finals.

The fix is in.

Though I guess there was a game 5 in the first to three so I suppose this no longer as magical.

Watching the World Junior showcase and the US has a player named Beeghe who is only 5'3.

Poor kid, no way does he make it. Fact that a solid program like Michigan grabbed him and he made the USDT is impressive though.
