    Re: Frozen Four Bids! Vegas and Beyond!

    Gila Arena in Phoenix/Glendale, Coyotes home, beautiful resort weather in April, tons of stuff to do in the area, snow ski in the morning up in Flagstaff, water ski in the afternoon 25 miles away from the arena, high hockey growth area to get more kids and colleges involved, why not? Also, 7 miles from my house, works for me!

        It's an idea, but it's a balancing act for sure. I'm already going to Houghton for the home games and she makes it to only 1 or 2 weekends a year. So in her mind hockey > Mrs W. too often already.

          Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes although Nashville is apparently off the table because of conflicts. Kinda disappointed Washington DC apparently didn't bid.

            +another one- LOVED the FF's in Tampa- lots of people show up, lots of extra vacations to do before and/or after the tournament. Perfect escape at the beginning of spring.

            WRT being a tourist, DC is pretty nice. New York would be interesting.

              No, Iím not biased itís a 70 mile drive.
              I think for many arenas, like New York. It's the time commitment. What the Frozen Four takes up four or five days? Lot of other events they could host in this time. This is why Nashville hasn't bid yet.


              Vegas sounds awesome as does Seattle.

                According to the 2023, 2024, 2025 & 2026 NCAA Division I Menís Ice Hockey Championship Site Selection Process itís six days:

                GENERAL FACILITY SPECIFICATIONS 1. Conditions and Availability.
                d. The facility and surrounding area (i.e., parking lots, frontage property and any other adjacent area that the facility may provide to the NCAA) shall be available for the exclusive use of the NCAA starting at 9 a.m. the Monday preceding the semifinal games (e.g., Thursday) through midnight the day of the championship for the purpose of preparing for, practicing for and conducting the Division I Menís Ice Hockey Championship.


                What find most interesting is the venue has the right to stop the championship game at midnight according the NCAAís specs (or charge the NCAA whatever the want to continue play).

                  That would be a great vacay spot for us snow birds.

                    We went. But to be honest it was low on our totem pole. It just wasnít very exciting and to be honest not much to explore outside the area.

                      Yes, warm weather with a beach is perfect.

                        Sounds like a good plan. But mix Boston in for me so I can drive.

                          Absolutely agree. Went up the arch, went to the games, went home ... Zzzz.

I can't imagine him ever making anyone even feel uncomfortable when he's sober.There are plenty of players in my time covering the team who have looked at me differently or flirted with me or the like. Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

                            From the standpoint of having made too many business trips to STL, I have no choice but to agree with Carmine. And if you like your whisky mixed with ginger ale (not me) or just like ginger ale, there is none. Bartenders mix cola with 7-up and think it's ginger ale. (Blecch!!)

                              The zoo was nice. The lack of genuine bbq was weird. We heard from locals, you need to drive up to KC. Strange place.

                                Also did business trip there. Not so great even on company tab. However we did do some substantial business there. Tech folks were very intelligent.
