Hmmmm, I can't quite figure out why they chose these two teams...

Why did NB laugh at this?

I probably could. I would insist on you briningg your hockey stick though with the anticipation that swing them at each other wildly until one draws blood. Loser pays for drinks. 🍺 

👍

Actually, I was planning on bringing risto's stick to swing, that way not only do I get a swing in, but it'll easily snap casing collateral damage 😉

My goal is to stay in Stockholm or whereverits played for maybe 3 days and then either drive or fly up north for another aurora shot since it's November, Gotta get the gf to go with me!

It’s Tampa-centric, but the athletic put out a good article about the game. Tampa looks like they’re going to be taking a week for the trip, I would imagine Buffalo the same.

What did I tell you I was doing in November? Huh? I told you like three times. Unbelievable.

I have a wife and daughter interested in the trip (albeit maybe not the game specifically).

This is a wonderful idea. This will help build the product, rather than the continuous dilutory expansion teams that are added. European kids can grow up seeing NHL games in person and build their dreams. Awesome idea. 

How far fetched would an EU division be in the future?

Id love to head out to any of these European league sites, but for one of their own games. I’d be curious to see their atmosphere in its full form, rooting for their hometown team. I might have to make that a bucket list item.

I have a full green light to pursue this.  I'm not booking anything until I have a ticket to the game (or tickets to both nights if possible).

I will fly out on 11/6 and return...... perhaps Mon/Tue of the following week.  I have no idea what i will do.. but as long as I procure a ticket, I am in.

Unfortunately for my son, that's varsity hockey tryout week.  So he's out.  My wife just can't make it happen.  So I am going solo.  But yeah, if people from here are going, awesome.

BTW: the flight I looked at was from NYC.  I'll research the add-on to get from ROC to NYC, but if it's stupid, I'd drive a group to NYC to catch the flight over.  $377 today, round-trip NYC to Stockholm.  that's insane.

Makes sense since Hedman is already established as one of the best defensemen in the NHL and Dahlin is perhaps regarded as a future best defenseman in the NHL, with both being from Sweden.

Sooo this would absolutely be something I travel to Sweden for.... I know it's a stretch, but is anyone here able to make it happen? 

I'm planning on going. Can't wait!

Yup, and the Flyers play the Hawks in Prague for Vorachek.

I’ve been begging my wife to get her passport for a couple of years now.  I’m hoping this will be the incentive she needs to actually follow through.  No way I’m going without her.

Indeed.  If there is a group from here it might make sense to get a schedule together, like we do for SS meetups.

Yeah.. I hope so.  I'm not loving it about going without my wife, but she's not going and she actually insists I should make it happen. (and it's not about getting me out of the house)

It would seem to me that we should try to get a bunch of tickets together on Monday for those who are willing to commit to buying them.
