A few games ago, someone suggested that we try to coordinate a [second?] OTF meet-up for a game day. It wasn't discussed in too much detail at the time, but after talking to a few more people about this, I think there is pretty significant interest - especially among the returning college/grad school crowd.
So, without further ado, here is a list of the up-coming home games in December. I'll list January as well, but (selfishly) I have to admit that I'd prefer that we choose a December game, because I'm leaving town for good on New Year's Eve.
***I'm not sure when all the students are getting back, so I'll post the 2nd half of December, and the 1st half of January***
15th (Thursday) - Detroit Red Wings >> College Night
17th (Saturday) - St. Louis Blues
22nd (Thursday) - Columbus Blue Jackets >> College Night
26th (Monday) - Detroit Red Wings
28th (Wednesday) - Minnesota Wild
1st (Sunday) - Calgary Flames
5th (Thursday) - Dallas Stars >> College Night
7th (Saturday) - Carolina Hurricanes
12th (Thursday) - Colorado Avalanche >> College Night
14th (Saturday) - Philadelphia Flyers
At the end of this post is a poll - as it says, it's more specifically for college/grad students (because we have much less flexible schedules than the locals), but obviously anyone can vote. I thought that might be a good way to get a running total of which games are most popular.
There was also a great deal of interest in those games that fall on "College Night" (designated above). My guess is that the Detroit game is probably going to be close to impossible to get CN tickets to, so while I might be wrong, it seems to me that if anyone is interested in a CN game, the Columbus game would be the one to attend.
Anyway, now that I'm finished..... VOTE AND DISCUSS!
