    Needs to be affordable or they won't sell any tickets.

      Elliot Freedman just made a report on HNIC that the league is looking at Regina for a possible outdoor game. No time frame given.

            If I had to guess I'd say it would likely be a "home game" for an Arizona, Florida, Carolina etc.

              Several ways to look at it.
              Pats were once a feeder team for the Habs.
              But lots of Oiler and Flames fans here.
              Jets the closest in proximity.
              so, who knows?

                    Have to wonder if the people involved with hosting such a game learned the lessons from last year's aborted effort.

                      Last year they were charging NHL prices for an outdoor WHL game that normally draws 6000 in the relative comfort of the Brandt Centre.

                      I assume ticket prices will be high again but since it's an NHL game I would think there would be more interest.

                        Issue imo is whether any of those four would give up a home game for this. Which is why it may be none of them or only one as the road team.

                              There is a reason teams do this. Every one of these teams has a stadium capacity 1/2 of mosaic stadium. potential for increased revenue is large. Sponsorships on NHL level are large. this is not a WHL game. any team that does it will make money
