Schedule Update ... Aeros to play one home game in MSP

The AHL schedule will come out later today, and there is one surprise on it indeed.
The Aeros will play one of their home games against the Peoria Rivermen at the Wild's home in St. Paul.
That game will take place on Feb. 12, 2011.

First Aeros home game there since 2005 when they beat the Grand Rapids Griffins behind two goals from Dan Cavanaugh. The Aeros lost to the Milwaukee Admirals in their only other game there.

We had better get a refund on this.

I'm sure the Aeros will say that they will "honor our ticket" there, though I doubt they will pick up our airfare and hotel.

I'm with FC on this. While this is a good thing for the players, it screws around the season ticket holders. I hate when the NHL, NBA, and NFL do this. They always take away a home game when they should designate it as something else.

Too bad the Wild did not decide to have the Aeros play this "home game" about 3.5 hours south of St. Paul in the now empty Wells Fargo Arena. We miss AHL hockey in Des Moines.

Maybe we could do a trade. The Wild could play one of their home games down here in Toyota Center and we could use our Aeros tickets that we won't be using for the game the Aeros play up there.

If i were a full-time Aeros fan, I think I'd be more upset at the two 11:00 AM 'knothole gang' games than the one game in MSP. I would hope the Aeros would 'do the right thing' and give you your ticket cost back at least in food vouchers or something (no one here really EXPECTS a refund, do you??)

This game may be televised (on a tape delay) by FSNorth, so you may see this game in Houston, anyways.

I don't think we get FSNorth in Houston. I'm more upset about the 13 3-in-3 games than I am about either the Minnesota game or the 2 days games, although day games aren't my favorite thing.
