Florida has two NHL teams - Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning - Panthers are Miami.

The Orlando Solar Bears are a Minor League team in the ECHL.

For me, being a hockey fan, I'd go to NHL/Tampa (though "my team" in as much as a Brit can have an allegiance to a foreign league, is the RedWings). Obviously the Solar Bears could be seen without the hour and a bit drive, and I'm sure would provide a fantastic spectacle... and no disrespect to UK Ice Hockey, but the minor leagues there are still a far higher standard than the UK leagues I used to watch in my uni days (Whitley Bay Warriors!).

Little envious in that I only ever visit Orlando in August, so miss the hockey season

I'm sure you'll enjoy whichever you choose

We went to a Solar Bears game last night. It certainly looked like a pro game to my non expert eyes. They play at Amway so it is a big game experience. I wouldn't travel to Tampa unless I was a serious fan.

Hockey all the way! One of my US clients in Dallas is a huge fan and insists on taking us when we're on site. It is great fun and really fast moving - and an amazing atmosphere.

Hockey. It's great. We went to a ducks game a couple of weeks back in Anaheim. We had a great time

This sums up everything I love about ice hockey, such a great game.

I voted for hockey obviously Went to Nashville a few years ago to watch the Predators, was a great game they won 6-5.

If we were to combine a Busch day with ice hockey in the evening, would that be too much for one day?[/QUOTE]

We did this once, spent the day at Busch, called into a Steak n Shake on the way to the arena and arrived in time to enjoy some of the pre game stuff outside.
It was for a play off game v the Red Wings - not sure if that added to the atmosphere, it was loud! No wonder they call it Thunder Alley
I'd do it again any time, sitting in the cool comfy seats for a few hours just chilling out (except when it looked like the Wings were going to score) was a perfect way to round out our day.
