    That Preds article makes me laugh. What a bunch of wussies. Heaven forbid fans want to make a road trip to come see their team play and try to establish a divisional rivalry. Being a Wild fan, I have no love for the Hawks and I’ve heard all about their idiotic fans, but seriously? “Fans, regardless of their affiliation, won’t be allowed to purchase single-game tickets to any of the three games between the Blackhawks and Predators in Nashville. They’ll be forced to buy tickets to a second game. And, during the pre-sale period, zip-code restrictions will be implemented.” Apparently these jokers haven’t heard of Seat Geek or craigslist.
