    If I was a fan in Terrace, I’m not sure how I’d feel about not getting to see much of a squad from either team. I’d definitely be excited to watch an “NHL” game and all, and be stoked to see some of the young talent, but would it be worth it? I’m not sure…

    An investigation should begin for “False Advertising”. Why pretend they are the team if the exciting part of the team doesn’t really show up? Poor kids who came excited.

    I understand where you guys are coming from, but you have to put this into context.

    For the kids who came out and watched, this was a great opportunity for them. Terrace is a 15 hour drive away from Vancouver and it’s not often they get to see the Canucks play live. Would it have been better if the stars were there? Absolutely. But at the same time, I think it’s exciting for them, regardless of whether it’s Sami Salo or Evan Oberg who shows up wearing that jersey.

    Oh, don’t get me wrong. I’m all for the team playing in smaller communities around the province and think doing so in the pre-season is the perfect opportunity.

    Where my concern lies is that the Kraft Hockeyville contest plays up the fact that real NHLers can play in your small town, and that didn’t really happen. I know there was more to the contest than simply a game, but I just think it was somewhat disingenuous when only a couple vets each way dresses.

    But having watched the game, seems that this city slicker was proven wrong.
