Went to a fight and some hockey broke out
 
I know most people probably don't know or care about the ECHL but since the NHL is in the lockout I'm getting pretty excited about it. This is also the first year for the Orlando team (solar bears) so it's nice to be able to go to games now too. The first home game for them was saturday and my wife and I, and another couple went and it was a ton of fun. First hockey game I'd been to in at least 10 years.

Was a great game too, sold out arena, evenly matched teams back and forth all game, then OT with no one scoring, then a 12 round shootout gave Orlando the win. Then even better was the bars downtown were giving free drinks with a ticket stub :)

Oh and several fights of coures :box2:

looks like fun. I haven't been to a hockey game in probably 10-15 years.

I think we are going to try to go to most of the home weekend games. Wife doesn't want to go to the weekday games....I might try to catch a few with friends or something.

Tickets are cheap, ~$15. We paid a little more for better seats, still only like $25. Not too bad. Our mistake was buying the beers, $7.75/ea. That gets expensive FAST lol.

Glad the game was good. 12 rounds of shoot outs that is amazing and a home opener to remember. I will be heading some junior games in the WHL this year that is for sure. Getting tired of Millionaires fighting Billionaires. I just want to watch some HOCKEY

It was good to see a group of people that just wanted to play.

Somewhere in the 2nd grouping of shoot outs we scored, but they scored immediately after. I thought first to score won but apparently there is a chance for redemption. In the 3rd grouping of shootouts we scored, they missed, we won. It was VERY intense lol.

ECHL is great hockey to watch.

I don't blame this on Bettman he is just he spokesperson for the owners. If the owners are taking the risk on building arenas are on the hook for the costs of all the staff in it and the whole staff of the orginazation plus taking the risk of players getting injured with guaranteed contracts and you aren't even getting 50% of the revenues? I think the players do need to compromise a bit. i wonder how Mario Lemieux feels now as an owner of a team. It would be interesting but I do feel the owners even as rich as they are should be entitled to atleast 50%. Not the current 43% owners 57% players.
