    The parking lot at the arena is a nightmare though. Only one way to exit IIRC.

    I think you might be right that this is the heart of the problem. Still, if fans don't like the drive out to the CTC, they will really hate having to drive to this arena to watch their team. ;)

    That must have been an exciting game to be at since it was the Jets 1st Avco Cup championship. I was on hand in 1978 when the Jets defeated the New England Whalers 5-3 to win their 2nd championship. It would be the last time Hull, Hedberg and Nilsson would play together for the Jets as the 2 Swedes were destined for New York the following season to play for the Rangers. I remember when the Jets were skating around the ice with the Avco Cup, the song "We are the champions" was playing over the PA system. I can only imagine how awesome it would be for our current Jets team to win the Stanley Cup!

    Just curious. I was looking at season ticket and playoff package prices and started to wonder about relatively high prices. What is median/average salary in Canada. Google gave me around 50-60k$ for white collars.

    It seems that people are using kind of big share of their net income for hockey. Am I totally lost here or os this the case?

    I think you're a bit lost. Two points would be
    1. A lot of season seats are split multiple ways amongst.
    2. The vast majority of season ticket holders aren't average wage earners. When you look at the median household income in Manitoba from the last census, its about $68k. But when you consider there are 300,000 households in Winnipeg and roughly 6500 households are season seat holders, the median household income of a season seat holder is likely far above the overall median.

    Offcourse there is variation on household incomes and there are always poor/middle class/rich people. Still some people must use kind of big share of their income to hockey.

    I think Winnipeg might be a bit unique in that a lot of STHs are sharing seats, and I mean a lot. I don't know anyone that doesn't have share partners, and I know from where I sit, every game there are different people sitting in the seats around me. If you could tally up the numbers there could be something like 50,000+ people that are sharing season tickets.

    That makes sense. I was just wondering that metropolitan Helsinki area is slightly bigger and income level is about the same in euros, thus it would be next to impossible to find that much people willing to spend 2000-7000 €/season to hockey.

    I've actually cheered on one of your teams, live and in person. Remember this game?



    Really wanted to see the Kiwis win this one. The coach of China was a classless idiot.

    Question: a buddy of mine controls 4 seats and he has three guys who buy up all the seats. What ticket allocation (Draft) system have you guys used that works. My friend wants to be fair.

    we do sort of the same - we drew random order the first time we made the playoffs, and now we continue the same pattern (so whomever was due to be next, will be the person getting the first game this year)

    We pick names out of a hat.

    5 share partners

    I picked 1 last time in playoffs so I don’t think I can pick 1 again.

    Last time they had a public availability and they had a separate sale for share partners and wait list. This was for only the first two games and it happened after the season IIRC. They will likely have clinched a playoff spot much earlier this year so maybe the do it a bit earlier? But maybe not.

    We are doing the exact same thing. Just continuing the playoff order in perpetuity. Of course you can still trade games within the group if you can’t attend for any reason. We just cycle the order in perpetuity. This is the fairest system we could think of.

    As for the playoff prices I find them to be very reasonable. I’m in P3 and grabbed some extra tickets for friends in the same row our season tickets are in for the Red Wings game last Friday and paid $200 + a seat off seat exchange. My p3s at STH cost will be $220 something if the Jets make the conference final.

    How do you draft for games that you don't know will happen?

    Just luck of the draw, I suppose. Some groups continue the draft order the next playoff season after the last real game it ended for the current season.

    Just get creative, dude. There are always ways to make ticket drafts fair.

    In a system like this it can be more of an order than a draft. Once the order is drawn tickets are simply assigned in that order and then the order restarts where it last left off.

    Example. 2015 draw order.
    1.Teemu
    2.Dale
    3. Anders
    4. Ulf

    Teemu went to game 1 in 2015, Dale went to game 2. Anders is now up for game 1 in 2018 and Ulf game 2 in 2018. Teemu will then be up for game 3 if there is one if not he will be at the next playoff game whenever it occurs.

    Our group did it a bit different for playoffs. There are 4 people for 2 seats so we decided for playoffs it was 1 seat only. Only the core group goes. Sorry wife, kids and friends. It works because we are brothers/buddies. Then we drafted for 1st game of the playoffs and then after that it is alternating. The 1st time we made the playoffs my brother and a buddy got the 1st game and I got a ticket for the 2nd game. As we all know it ended there. This playoffs I will get a ticket to the 1st game, and then 3rd, 5th etc. No matter which game we end on the next time we make the playoffs I will get a ticket to game #2, 4, 6 etc. No way to know what game the cup will be won on, but there is only one opening night so it seemed like a pretty fair way to divide tickets up.
