Yotes Attract Fans With Food

from Russell Brooks of PhoenixCoyotes.com,

Fans watching a Coyotes game in a luxury suite inside Jobing.com Arena this season have good reason to arrive early….

“I am lucky enough to have access to beef that almost no one has access to,” said Choate, who is a gold member of the Certified Angus Beef Board. “I want to provide the best dry-aged beef available to the people at Jobing.com Arena. When you come here, you are getting something special that you are not going to be able to go to Westgate or Scottsdale and receive.”

Taking the Dressing Room on the Road

From Mike Ulmer at Maple Leafs.com

imageThe Leafs Nation Mobile Fanzone will put fans first.

“I think the dressing room is an inner sanctum people don’t get access to,” Hosford said. “ It’s something where people can feel what it’s like to actually be there. That’s why we wanted to replicate it and take it out into the community for all the people who are such a big part the Toronto Maple Leafs.”

The Leafs Nation Mobile Fanzone will be driven to locations all over the GTA over the next six days. Some of those events will include Leaf players and alumni handing out Leafs gear. Everyone gets free swag as well as a walking tour of the rolling room.

Wings Interested In Shanahan?

from Sam Weinman of Rangers Report,

While Shanahan’s agent, Rick Curran, told me just now that the door with the Rangers hasn’t been closed, he also said there remains considerable interest from teams around the league, including “a couple of general managers that would raise a few eyebrows.”

One of those teams is presumably the Detroit Red Wings, where Shanahan spent nine seasons before signing with New York.

The Leonsis Plan

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

Asked what he had learned after just about 10 years as an NHL owner, Leonsis said:

“You know, I’ve always worked in public companies, but here’s a private company (in the Capitals).

“So I said, ‘OK, we don’t have shareholders like Wall Street. We have stakeholders – our fans.’ And you always hear businessmen being criticized for not taking the long-term view; that they have to meet the next 90 day’s quarterly results. So they view things for the short term, at the detriment of the long term of the company.

Preseason Means Something

from James Duthie of TSN,

“These are like playoff games to me,” (Rhett) Warrener says. “I am a lot more nervous now for these than I have been for regular season games in years. I used to hate them (preseason games). Now I wish there were more.”...

“This is still my dream ... to play in the NHL,’’ Warrener says. ‘‘Calgary is my home. Playing for the Flames is my life. It scares me to think it could be taken away.”
