The American Hockey League discussion thread

Just seeing if this thread can catch any interest or any discussion. Hopefully it can, if not, oh well.

I'd love to see an AHL game, but there aren't any teams all that close to me. The nearest ones might be Bridgeport or Hershey, which aren't really day trip distance.

Bridgeport actually has a semi-nice arena now. it used to be a complete joke with no scoreboard over center ice but it's pretty cool now. I'm impressed. There's usually some nice energy in the building too (unlike in a place like Hartford which is awful).

You can go to a Bears game and hershey park to make a weekend out of it! If you didn't know, The Giant Center where this Bears play is right in Hersheyparks parking lot.

That's pretty sad that they didn't even have a scoreboard over center ice. Do you by chance have any pictures from inside the old arena? Kinda crazy they played in an arena like that meanwhile the monsters were playing in this arena:

Yeah, here it is. It was awful.

They've since added a new HD screen and ribbon boards and it looks like an entirely new arena.

^ The old arena almost looks like a glorified rec center. Yikes.
It does look a heck of a lot better now than it did though!
It's kinda a bucket list item of mine to go to an AHL game at every AHL arena.

I did know that and that's actually a good idea. I'll definitely consider that in the near future. The only drawback would be giving money to a team that has an affiliation with the damn Capitals. ;)

Columbus, eh? I know the frustration of watching a team coached by Torts all too well. (NYR here)

At least you guys made the playoffs under Torts ;)
I kinda wish CBJ would have taken Coach Bednar from the Monsters.... He's a damn good Coach.
