Yeah, but that thread has been closed.

This event, of course, would only work in Canada. Having said that and knowing the atrocity that is NHL coverage in the States...I'm hoping that even ESPN can see that this game should be televised here in the States.

They showed a dry run of the rink setup in Commonwealth stadium. If it all comes off as expected with 50,000 some fans attending, it's gonna be quite the spectacle.

I hope this works. If the NHL can get some outdoor games in, even if it's in East German Snot, Saskatchewan, it'll be great for attendance and ratings, just to spice things up.

Of course, it's mroe likely that the ice will melt, or that it'll snow, or that something else simply awful will happen.

Are any of the Western Canadian weiners planning on going? I am moving to Calgary in Sept so I'm thinking this game would be worth the drive to Edmonton, just for the spectacle of it all.

We're actually trying to get a crew from here in Calgary to head up. As much as Edmonton both sucks and blows, it should be a blast.

I'll be going for sure. So far it looks like a group of about six of my friends will be making the trip over the Rockies.

Should be an absolute blast...outdoors, 50,000 in attendance, and Gretzky plays his first oldtimers game.

FINALLY...the Goodyear Blimp can be used for aerials of a hockey game! This has got to be progress for the human race at some level.
