Just how much do you want to watch Olympic hockey with Trevor Linden?

OK, enough of this democratic party-of-the people stuff. You can thumb your noses at the shivering masses by shelling out $8,500 for a 17-day pass to Molson Canadian Hockey House, the 81,000-square-foot hospitality pavilion for Hockey Canada and the International Ice Hockey Federation.

Every Olympic hockey match will be simulcast on giant HD screens, and the select few will enjoy aged steaks from the on-site kitchen and lots and lots of Molson Canadian, all while rubbing elbows with hockey legends including Molson Canadian Hockey House Ambassadors Trevor Linden and Stan Smyl.

When the final siren brings the day’s Games to a close, the sausage fest continues with a live stage featuring performances by top Canadian artists such as comedian Sean Cullen and the Barenaked Ladies, among others.
