Tonight's game is also a sellout.

What's the estimated start time?

Thanks blake

That was a big disappointment of a opening ceremony.

Sat, 10/22/2011 - 9:12pm

Opening ceremonies were less than expected.

Sorry Blake, no sell out tonight. 10,000 and some change.
Great game for the out of town fans, not so good for the rest of us.

What would you guys have liked to see for opening ceremonies? Any suggestions?

After all that was done to build up the 60th, I also expected more from the Opening Ceremonies. Other than bringing them onto the ice a different way...it was really no different than...last year. The majority of the fans probably had very little knowledge of who most of the legends are...maybe 10-20 seconds apiece of into would have been nice. It just seemed a bit rushed this year.

And, I maybe I just don't "get it"...but the pre-game video thing with Icy must have looked real good on paper...but everyone around me had the same opinion...what the hell was that?

Also...the shots of Flag-draped coffins, soldiers crying, and Arlington National Cemetary in the Anthem video seemed to be more than just a little distasteful before a hockey game.

No offense to whoever makes the videos, but I can't stand the cheesiness of them.

I would like to see some real stuff up there. Players speaking, showing more clips, etc. less ICY!

i kinda wondered what went thru the minds of the so called captains of each decade. they just said their names and they skated out in uniform and then that was it? they looked bored and we in the stands kept waiting for something else to happen and it never did. and that opening with icy and the remote went lame as soon as the static lasted more than a few seconds and most people wonderd what the point was. my only real complaint was they asked us all to come early and many of us did only to find the doors were locked and we all spent our time in the lobby waitng for the doors to open.

Hit Somebody!!!

It all sucked...LOL Just like the one section always yells.

The worst part was the hockey.

They can screw all the other stuff up if they want...

They need to get the hockey part right. How does this team lay an egg like that for the 2nd year in a row???

Al better start changing things up. This might be his last 10 games here.
