    Melnyk's a huge part of the problem there. The arena location is also an issue - it's kind of like the Coyotes' situation with Gila River Arena being inconvenient to a significant portion of the fanbase. And Ottawa is not a great sports town in general - their favorite sport is politics (CPAC is literally Channel 22 there, whereas everywhere else it's on Channel 584^10).

    Lots of politics and politicians but the area also has a population of ~a million normal people too. :laugh:

    The arena situation is very similar to Arizona's. With a better owner than Melnyk they probably would have got the LeBreton Flats new arena project to fix that. Or some other solution.

    What do Philly games start at 12 noon?

    Is there a Quaker convention in town?

    Public safety issue. Everyone's too drunk by 2:00.

    Hockey sucks when the only canadian team playing is the Leafs. Six channels and they are all showing the Leafs. I know it’s “HNIC” but cmon ... take 1 channel and show someone else.

    Another Dallas home game where they have more PP's and special teams the difference.

    Gonna start following this. Dont mess with Texas, I guess.

    Apparently we’re in the mix to play in the 2021 Winter Classic in Minnesota

    That would be very strange as were such a small market. Nbc sure wouldn't let this happen would they? I have a feeling it would be colorado or another rival.

    I have to think you're right. Maybe it depends on if they want the gate or the TV viewers.

    I imagine the Jets would help fill the stadium much better than the Avs would, but after two Heritage Classics in the last few years it's hard to gauge whether many Winnipeggers would even still have the wherewithal to travel for it.

    Colorado would certainly gain the tv viewers with what they got going on out there.

    Not that I'm representative but I'd be much more inclined to head to a winter classic in Minneapolis than the Heritage Classic in Regina. Winnipeggers love their Minny.

    Otherwise I agree with both contentions - we're not the draw for TV and not sure that soon after the Heritage that many would want to travel.

    Minnesota vs Dallas in the Winter Classic would have made sense, with Dallas wearing some sweet retro North Stars jerseys. But since Dallas is in the upcoming one, not going to happen.

    Statement from Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill:

    "The Dallas Stars expect all of our employees to act with integrity and exhibit professional behavior while working for and representing our organization. This decision was made due to unprofessional conduct inconsistent with the core values and beliefs of the Dallas Stars and the National Hockey League."

    This seems to come out of nowhere.

    Or were there hints it might be coming?

    I thought he was going to get fired earlier in the season before their win streak.

    I wonder what he did, the statement from the Stars makes it sound like he may have said or done something to someone outside of the organization. TSN is reporting that it wasn't something that would have fallen under the NHL's new code of conduct for management.

    He was pretty openly calling out players but I wasn’t sure if that may or may not have been a reflection behind closed doors.
