no, It really isn't.
with the Super Bowl being here that next weekend, this already overcrowded area will be worse.
Penn Station will be a fortress....

These games are a farce. Pure greed. Horrible sight-lines for hockey. Try following a puck around from normal bleacher seats in a baseball or football stadium - impossible. The spectacle has worn off. People need to stop acting like lemmings - these games are a joke. The original idea was cute. "Hey, wasn't it cute to see the players respecting their heritage, wearing toques and braving the weather..." blah blah.

Now it is just old. The ice is horrible, players can't even stickhandle after the first 10 minutes because of the bad conditions. And I haven't even mentioned the effect the weather may have on the game......

Like everything else....................have a good idea and then beat it to death.

Didn't know there was a rivalry there between the two.

Also announced:

NASCAR to race at Squaw Valley the week after the Masters.

Well this idea has officially jumped the shark. Pens/Hawks? How is that even remotely a rivalry (only works if it's a re-match of the Cup finalists this year with the Pens trying to avenge a sweep at the hands of the Hawks :).

What's worse is that this is being sponsored by what easily could be considered the worst beer in the world.
