I was a kid back then - but I remember going to a game. So I looked
it up. it was real hard to get tix to the Garden for the Ranger$ -
and I remember my dad taking us to a game there for the Flyers. It
was only one - but at least I was partially RIGHT :)
The games in 92/93 were the "neutral site" games....in a planned
Neutral Site game region.

while the Scouts actually played (though Albuquerque was in the CHL as a
Scouts team in 1973-74), but that's not to say that wouldn't have changed
affiliations down the road. Omaha became available in 1975-76 but went dark
rather than become a Scouts affiliate. Oklahoma City was an indy team in
1976-77 and suspended ops the next season before returning as a North Stars
affiliate. Wichita's arena would indeed have been ready in time to cover
the roof collapse.
I'd be hesitant to use the same arena as my affiliate, however, because that
effective doubles the dates at the facility. If, for example, the Scouts
had switched to Wichita for 1979, I think I would rather have played the NHL
games in Omaha, where there'd been no hockey for several years at this
point. If we're talking a handful of games then yeah I'd go to Wichita, but
when Kemper cratered it became unavailable for most of that season.
