McKee will be a good addition to the Pens...they need a shot blocker, that is IF he stays healthy.

This. 730 games were perfect for me, this may lead to me missing the beginnings of games on some nights.

Game time was moved due to the 64/40 project. Since that will be done and reopened either on January 1 or earlier then I guess they assume no one will be delayed.

It was also moved back due to a survey of season ticket holders. I'd prefer the later start myself.

I liked the later start, also. Gave me time to go home, change, grab a bite and some beers and head to the game. It was perfect.
I love hockey. Period.

No joke. JD please keep the game time at 7:30. Everyone enjoyed this time better than 7:00 start time. It gave everyone more time to get ready for the game.

Nothing about that hockeybuzz post makes me feel good. Paying McKee more than the team he's playing for SUCKS, and 7:00 start times are lame. How am I supposed to fit in my taco bell and tall boys before the game now? Thanks a lot JD! :?

They're predicting a Thanksgiving opening. The workers get a nice bonus if they're done ahead of schedule.

This isn't any different than how it was two years ago. Hell, how do you people make it to baseball games on time? I don't forsee this turning in to a massive attendance issue.

Baseball sucks. And I'm sure it won't make an attendance issue it was just nicer having that extra half hour last year, sorry we have opinions.

Haven't been to a baseball game in over 4 years, and even that was in KC. Can't remember the last time I actually went to STL for a game.

I just prefer the 7:30 start time, cause I met up with friends whom all get off at different times and drove up together.

I prefer the 7pm starts. I was a 3rd shifter and a STH who couldnt stick around til the end of the 3rd alot becasue i would be late for work. And now that im a 1st shifter it still is better for me. I work 7-3:30 and that doesnt keep me out too late. Love this change back.

You will never get me to feel sorry for a 9-5er. You can still make it to the games, youll just have to change your cloths at work like i had to for the last couple seasons.
