Thanks, Skelc.......... Mapquest says the new Caps home is only 6 miles from where they played last yr. So that won't be a problem for fans with the change in venues.
Anyone been to Hartmeyer? Built in 1960 and seating 3,500 it looks like my kind of old barn.
Looks like a hockey barn, rather than the general-purpose arena they're currently in. Could mean better sightlines for hockey. More intimate atmosphere with fewer empty seats making the place feel empty.
Hey I'd go to a game there and probably enjoy the "feel" of the place. Most fans that are talking hockey online in July probably would but we are a given. It's the family of 4-5 that is the target, the casual fan that makes or breaks a franchise. ....... That's the concern with this arena unless it's just a bridge to the next one.
