The St Louis Blues have opened up thier training camp to the public. They are allowing fans to come in, see practice and they also get to see two scrimmage games a day. I went today and was amazed at the speed of the game. I had previously only been to Minor League games, so I was totally in awe of thier speed and skill.

Does any other NHL club offer this to thier fans?

I think most of them open up their camps. I've been to a few Canucks practices because they used to practice at the same 8 Rink Complex that I did. It's really amazing to see because even the "worst" players are so much better then you'd ever think.

I think hockey would be more popular in the US if more people had the chance to just go to one NHL game.

...are you sure the Caps weren't just leaving the doors unlocked, figuring no one would WANT to go in and watch them?



Washington Huskies, 1-1. USC didn't look THAT great after the first quarter, so I'm more optimistic that they'll be the 2003 Pac-10 champs.

Every Flames practice & scrimmage is open to the public for free. This is either the second or third year they've done it.



My Calgary Flames are currently tied for first place overall with a record of 0-0-0-0. It's training camp, but it's a start, right?

Actually the blues have been doing this for years as well. At least since they moved into their new practice rink in I believe 1995.

THis is the first time they have done it at Savvis Center though, correct?

Besides, who wants to drive all the way out to Chesterfield to watch them practice? Well, I guess I would actually.

OMG Training Camps open to the public?! Next you'll be telling me that for a certain fee, the public will be allowed to watch regular season games!
