The Shark Club is the place to go before and after the game. The
Courtnall Sport Bar and Grill (owned by Jeff Courtnall) is also a
good alternative. Both are really close to GM Place...
You can definitely buy tickets from scalpers for a very small premium
(the Canucks are not exactly a hot item these days...). First,
however, you should check at the ticket booths; most likely they will
still have decent tickets.
You can probably order tickets online from the Ticketmaster website (I
think it's www.ticketmaster.ca) or maybe from the Orca Bay WEB site
(owns the Canucks).
Good luck! Go HABS Go!!
