Plus/Minus Arena Report: 2016-2017 Outdoor Hockey

Posted by roamingtherinks on October 8, 2016 at 3:45 PM

We've decided to help arena roaming fans keep track of new arena opportunities, as well as those venues that may end up with new hockey tenants, or end up closing or vacant this upcoming season. We'll have a series of reports as the season gets closer, and this week we will take a look at the locations that fans can enjoy outdoor hockey this Winter is they so choose.  This season there seems to be less excitement and a few less outdoor games than in years past.  Perhaps the attraction of the outdoor game is getting a bit played out.  Outdoor games start earlier than normal this season, with the first contest taking place in a couple weeks. Here's what's happening on the outdoor hockey scene this season:


Investors Group Field     Winnipeg, MB     Heritage Classic     Winnipeg Jets vs Edmonton Oilers     October 23rd

Winnipeg gets an outdoor game, and an early season one at that.  The Jets will take on the Oilers only a couple weeks into the season, likely to avoid the brutal Manitoba Winters.  The game will take place at the home field of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.



BMO Field     Toronto, ON     Centennial Classic     Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings     January 1st

Another CFL stadium gets the second game of the season.  This one is Toronto, where Leafs fans spend more on tickets than any fanbase in North America.  We were hoping some CIS or Junior hockey would have been included, but have not seen any announcements confirming that.



Busch Stadium     St. Louis, MO     Winter Classic     St. Louis Blues vs Chicago Blackhawks     January 2nd

The Midwest gets a crack at an outdoor game as St. Louis will host the Winter Classic.  The Blues continue to be one of the stronger franchises in the NHL, and it is their turn to host the outdoor festivities.

Fenway Park     Boston, MA     Frozen Fenway     College Hockey     January 5th-14th

Fenway Park will have another edition of their Frozen Fenway event, this time centering on college hockey.  A number of games including double headers and a Division 3 game make this likely the most appealing outdoor venue of the season.   

Games will include:  January 5- Bentley vs Army

                                     January 7-BU vs UMass and BC vs Providence

                                     January 12-UMass-Boston vs Babson in a D3 game

                                     January 14-Maine vs UConn and UNH vs Northeastern



Municipal Stadium     Bakersfield, CA     Condorstown Classic     Bakersfield Condors vs Ontario Reign     January 7th

AHL hockey came to the West Coast last season as a game was played in Sacramento.  This year Bakersfield gets to host the lone outdoor game in the AHL at the home of Bakersfield College

Heinz Field     Pittsburgh, PA     Stadium Series     Pittsburgh Penguins vs Philadelphia Flyers     February 25th

Pittsburgh is a football town.  They also currently have the Stanley Cup champs.  Heinz Field held the Winter Classic in 2011, and it seems we are on the second go-round now for outdoor venues.  Still, the cross-state rivalry will get fan interest in this contest.


 

 

Outdoor games can be a lot of fun, and, since they rarely take place in the same venue again, can make for memorable experiences.  Just don't forget about the hassle and big crowds that frequently accompany this type of game, as well as the increased expense from seeing your favorite team in their normal indoor home.  Although you will likely be seated far from the action, watching hockey outdoors is something every hockey fan should experience.


We'll try to keep you up to date on arena and franchise changes in the world on hockey on the Plus/Minus Arena Report.  Stay tuned for future articles.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

Dosage:
It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

Effects:
The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

Promises:
If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
