Good day to all of you fine ladies and gentlemen at PPP. First off, as a longtime New Jersey Devils fan, I'd like to wish the club luck with Clarkson. He was always a fan favorite and hard worker on the ice, even with his propensity to often end up sliding on it as opposed to skating on it. You'll also become intimately familiar with the Clark-around and his vast array of one-on-one moves, including (but not limited to), the toe-drag, the toe-drag, and also the toe-drag.
I'd like to express my congratulations or condolences, whichever your preference, for the extension of Nonis. I personally think the potato got shafted (Yes, I am a lurker here. You guys are hilarious and at times a great respite from the iron-fisted rule of ILWT).
The reason I'm writing this is because myself and a very good friend (Flyer fan - don't ask) are in the midst of our bucket-list attempt to see an NHL game in every arena. Your Maple Leafs are on the docket for a Saturday game against the Oilers in October and hanging in the city for the weekend with a Sabres game to follow in Buffalo on Monday.
This journey is as much about the experience in every venue as it is about the experience in every city, and I figured the best place to ask first would most definitely be here - things to see and do in the city, and best places to go after the game. We're looking for the places that we, being originally from northeastern Pennsylvania in the US, may not hear or read about in a google search but are great in terms of fan hangouts. Just for context we're two huge hockey fans in our mid-20s, and to completely get into the atmosphere we'll be fully supporting the home teams at each game. Except for the Atlan...er...Metropolitan (ugh) division teams of course.
Sorry for being wordy, and thanks guys for reading, for any suggestions in advance, and for keeping me sane with this great community.
