I'm pretty sure Hamilton is an absolute no-go. It would be an excellent place in theory--Hamilton either already has a big enough stadium or they're excited to build one (forget which) and there are plenty of people who'd go to the game but it's very close to Toronto. I swear I remember reading part of the reason Winnipeg got the Jets back instead of Hamilton getting a team was that Leafs fans would just go to Hamilton for the cheaper games and generally everyone at every game would probably just be from Toronto so it's not much of a home team. Hamilton is probably one of the most successful places they could put an NHL team money-wise but I don't think it would have the "feel" they seem to want.

:( Last time I went to an NHL game was when I was in Edmonton because it's SO expensive in Toronto. I'd really like for Hamilton to get a team so I could at least go to games there, lol.

What's this... hockey that you speak of in person really? I do not comprehend!

*never been to a SINGLE NHL game, or even watched one*

And for saying that, I'll probably be deported back to asia for committing treason against Canada.

I don't even know the prices for admission to any games, but I know it'd be a lot more than anything I have right now. It is kinda nice to see the Jets back, but now people in Québec want the Nordiques back, from what I've heard.

I know that ticket prices for the Canucks are pretty ridiculous, even against the lesser teams of the league. My dad and I were looking to go to a game last year, and the cheapest pair of tickets we could find was $145 for the pair, and they were at the back of the nosebleeds. And the game was against the Columbus Blue Jackets, who were by far the worst team in the league last year. I remember hearing it was like this across the rest of Canada too, as the 7 cities were all in the top 8 for most expensive tickets on average. But I'm sure fans would be willing to shell out their money if a team came back to Quebec (just like they have in Winnipeg), which is why it always baffles me that the NHL tries to get teams like Phoenix to succeed, even though they can't fill the arena when 50% of tickets are given out for free.

In other Canadian news, there was a 7.7 Magnitude earthquake off the coast of BC last night, near the Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands (resulted in only minor structural damage and no injuries). I personally found out about it through Twitter, when I saw that #PrayForCanada and #PrayForVancouver were trending worldwide. I was honestly scared, thinking there was some horrible disaster that happened near me, but it just turned out to be Twitter blowing things out of proportion, and not knowing their Canadian geography (the earthquake was more than 800 km away from the city, or the distance between Vancouver and Northern California).

Yeah. The GP Storm tickets start at $50, and front rows go for a few hundred iirc.

I heard about it the next day. Good to hear nobody was hurt.

My Aunt and Uncle in... I think they live in Kelowna right now? They didn't feel the earthquake while they were out to dinner but the light fixtures were shaking noticeably and they thought that was really weird. They assumed there was a dance party or something on the floor above them before they even thought of earthquakes. :P

I think the cheapest Leafs tickets are in the $70 range, but I could be wrong. If you want good seats I think you're looking at maybe $300. It's been a looong time since I last checked, though. This article says the average is about $120 but lol Toronto Sun... they didn't even spell "ticket" right in the URL. Not exactly 5-start journalism. Regardless, it's just way too expensive to see a Leafs game without making a really big occasion out of it. :/

(Also I tried that pulled pork poutine from NYF finally... it was surprisingly good!)

Yeah, being really close to the BC border, I didn't feel a thing, but then, we do live quite a fair distance from the epicenter of the quake.

If the Oilers stay in Edmonton, I wanna go there and see a game someday soon.

Busy for a few days and the club drops to almost the bottom of the page D:

So we're no American east coast and fortunately we aren't battered as badly... hopes and prayers to our American neighbors D: But how are things in the east coast anyway? Supposedly there's still some crazy strong winds and traffic lights are destroyed even though we're only on the edge of it all.

If you want to eat the best poutine ever, go to Montreal and head over to La Banquise. It's rated the best poutine in Montreal :D

My parents brought me to Montreal when I was a baby and I haven't been back since. :( Been to a few other places in Quebec but never there.

Hurricane was just fine where I am. We weren't really near its path, though, which I think headed up between Toronto and Ottawa? Power on campus went out on the Tuesday for a few hours but Hydro was saying it was unrelated to the storm haha. Wasn't even much of a storm, either, just really windy, rained a bit overnight, and was kinda windy and cold again the next day. Pretty much the same as the last two weeks anyway.

Scarf and winter jacket weather has finally started here in Southwestern Ontario though. :( Was below zero while I was out today.

Nova Scotia, I never been there. I would like to see how it is over there.
Is it mostly nature everywhere?
Because here in Montreal is all buildings, buildings and more buildings. You gotta get out of the city to see some nature! @_@

Nova Scotia! <3

I love the conveniences of Southern Ontario but I think if I had to pick another province to live in, it would be Nova Scotia. It's just so beautiful. I still really miss it and I moved away over a decade ago.

Well, any city will have lots of buildings but I imagine you don't have to go nearly as far to hit "nature" in NS. Even as the biggest city, Halifax isn't very big. I have fonder memories of Nova Scotia under all weather conditions than any other province so if nature's what you want, you'd probably love it.

Cape Breton is so pretty in autumn when the leaves are changing. *u*

The atlantic provinces are probably all good places to stay in if you can handle the "small city boredom." If that's not an issue for you though, then certainly I imagine that the place being so close to nature and the ocean will make it pretty neat.

We recently had some -20 weather. It's back to the freezing point now, though.

I think I'd rather have that sort of weather than what we get here on the west coast (2 degrees and rain basically all winter). I was actually in Calgary last year for the Heritage Classic outdoor game between the Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadiens, and with windchill it dropped to around -30 degrees in the stadium and I had no problem with it. I just can't stand all the rain and it getting dark at 4:00, it's almost depressing.

I don't think that the getting to dark at 4:00 (it's dark by 5 for us atm) is affected by weather... XD;

It's not an appropriate Canadian club without one of these as pictures: Hello Edmontonian Snowstorm!



The road to university campus got so wrecked (cars/buses collision or getting stuck everywhere) that the road was closed and people had to get out of their vehicles and pull off a mass exodus to walk up the hill in the snow.

We just had some snow fall. Nothing excessive. It's much lighter though, I was heading home, and the sun was facing me, and I saw all this sparkly and shiny snow. It was really pretty in the orange evening sunlight. @__@

I've been to Ontario, Alberta, BC, Quebec, PEI, and Nova Scotia, and I have to say my favorite is NS. Ocean yeahhh

I'm a huge sports fan, and the NHL lockout (Senators fan woot) is giving me absolutely nothing to do every 2 nights. :( Other than that I watch the CFL. Montreal Allouettes YAY

Prices for hockey tickets here go down to $30 at the absolute cheapest, and the most expensive ones are around $300.

You can't get Aero in the USA? Why do I not know this ;;
