Andy Strickland @andystrickland 27m
@JoeYerdonPHT or the World junior evaluation camp. Shouldn't be in Lake Placid, Buffalo rumored destination
Yerdon did respond that there would be USA Hockey Reps coming as well
I happened to be in the ADKs a couple of weeks ago and dropped in for a bit of USA vs Sweden. We expected to see them on the main sheet and I assumed there might be a nominal ticket charge and maybe 1000 people. Instead they were playing out back on the 3rd rink painted for curling. There were maybe
200 people there, 100 of us that weren't scouts or suit-types, all crowded around the glass. 0 bleacher seating. Cost was $0. The player benches were very short and with the bigger rosters it looked the NYC subway in rush hour. I suppose it's an exhibition game, but both teams are flying their official colors. I think if it was in Buffalo (or Minn?) people would show up for the feature events. Harbor Center looks like it would be perfect for this. Oh and we talked to one other group of fans there....yup, also Sabres fans.
