To be honest, I actually preferred the ECHL when the Icecaps were in Raleigh because I could actually afford to go. Went to opening night and way more Icecaps games than I've been to Canes games (2).

I read in the Boston Globe a few weeks ago that they were considering building an outdoor hockey rink right smack dab in the middle of Fenway Park. BU & BC would host Michigan, MSU, Wiconsin, Minnesota (or whoever) in a double-header under the lights. That would be cool, I'd fly up for that.

Hippie, have you heard any more on this?

BeeGee, I agree with you on the Icecaps. Good, physical hockey at an affordable price.

I can't say I have seen this story about fenway, but I'm away right now, and was out of work (seasonal) for a few weeks before I left, so I wasn't reading the paper at the breakfast place... It doesn't seem feesable this year though, there isn't ice anywhere, just too warm... Maybe college rollerhockey?

Of course English hockey counts... I think they won gold in the olympics, I want to say in '40, but that seems unlikely as the country was a little busy (but never occupied ) at the time. I'll check it out...

Alright you guys, flame-on. What a poor showing from Canada. Sometimes I hate the olympic format of team selection. 'Team' Canada looked like a bunch of single players skating around which is exactly what they were. I'd really like to see how a team which has played together for a full year whould do. Too bad there weren't more Canucks on the Flames.
Drat.
Not to take anything away from the Russkies though, they played really well and deserved the win.

Hey BostonBrewin',
