    Sounds awesome! Additionally we have a stickied thread for everything related to visiting NYC. I would also recommended dropping by one of our GDTs around the end of March, as they draw by far the most amount of traffic, and there are a lot of helpful people here who can suggest the best bars, restaurants, attractions, etc.

    Thanks for the tip! I will be checking regularly for updated ticket sales and certainly check out the best bars and attractions for before the game.

    I am an Av's fan, but I love hanging with fans of other teams and seeing the passion they have for their team. Boston and Montreal do it right, Toronto was pretty meh. I have a feeling Rangers fan's will fall in line with Boston/Montreal.

    Not just that, I have found most people on here don't even want to pay face value. People want discounts.

    At least it's better than Craigslist. When I used to post my tickets on there I got an email from some kid telling me "it's my birthday, can I get the tickets for free?" And it would have been bad enough if it was actually his birthday, but I would get the same email from him every month. lol

    I've gotten some of those, as well. I usually screw around with the person for a few days and let them think I will give them to him/her for free, but it has been at least 5 years since I have bothered posting on craig's list. If something came up last minute, I have people I can call and one of them would take them for face value that bother with craig's list. If I am going to give someone tickets for face value, or have to make an effort to get them the tickets, I want it to be for one of my regular buyers or a friend/family member I actually know personally.

    On here, I haven't posted in at least 2 years. 3 years ago, I posted that I had 4 games, less popular games, but was willing to sell them all as a package for face value. I made it clear that I had ONLY those 4 games, and that I was not willing to break up the package. Of course, I got 4 or 5 pm's from people asking for different games, including the opener and the games around Xmas and Thanksgiving.

    I got a pm from someone asking if they could also have play-off rights from me if they took the 4 games. When I said, "no", I received a dissertation about how I shouldn't expect people to take my garbage games without anything in-return. I wound up posting all 4 games on stub hub (it was before I stopped using them) and the ticket exchange and sold all 4 for a healthy profit.

    I have also received pm's on here from people who have asked for a specific game, usually a popular game. When I tell them I do not have anything, sometimes I have added that if I was selling it, it wouldn't be on here for face. That turned into a long winded post about how I am a jerk because instead of giving it to a true fan, I am giving it to some rich person who doesn't care about the team. Personally, I do not see how one's financial status dictates how much they care for the team. When I told him if he was such a fan, he should go for a less popular game at closer to face value. Since, afterall, he is a huge fan, isn't he going there to see the Rangers?

    Was his name Zach? I used to get the same junk from him. Haven't heard from him in a while.

    Typically the fake listings on craigslist aren't out to make $184 on upper level tickets and walk you through the gate. This seems like a guy looking to sell extras who you could meet and pay after you are in. Maybe I am wrong.

    I have gotten pairs on Craigslist this year and been fine.

    Could very well be legit, but "I am a one time private seller" does not give me any sort of confidence. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't try to buy them if I wanted those tickets. I would meet with the guy and check the barcodes on ticketexchange and if everything is good hand over the money

    The process is all different. Yesterday was the deadline for STHs and half-planners to renew for next year and pay for playoff strips. They'll probably give the non-renewers a grace period til Friday to change their minds then next week they'll take the strips that weren't paid for and offer them (probably not all of them) to half planners & mini-planners that have renewed.

    The rest will be sold on Ticketmaster and at the Box Office in a staggered manner. Beware that to fuel a mad rush and sense of scarcity they will not release everything at once and will put them up in dribs and drabs as people pay the ransom. The tickets will be priced dynamically, which means basically just below Stubhub prices.

    First they have a presale for various plan holders, which is a total fraud since they don't give them a unique password, and so everyone in the public knows the password (like "RANGERSTOWN"). Then they'll have a chase credit card presale, and then they'll have the general sale. None of these presales are much of an advantage because of the dynamic pricing and because the hold back so much.

    As time goes by, they'll release more and more seats and if the game happens to be on a bad day like Mother's day or Easter, prices will eventually dump on ticketmaster and on the secondary market

    2017-18 Season Tickets available.

    I am looking to move a lot of tickets for 17/18 season.

    Would be willing to do an entire season at face value, tickets are $99 per (average over the season).

    2 available in 208, 2 in 217. Willing to do half or 1/4 season as well. Deposit will be needed and remainder in September.

    Payment only via Chase Quick Pay, and then I will hand you the hard tickets once they arrive.

    Work in taking me to Asia for all of 2018, so I won't be able to go to any games after January 4th.

    Please pm me if interested.

    Thanks!

    Playoff tickets cannot be sold using this method as no one realistically sells tickets at or below face value except to people they know personally. This thread will be re-opened in the late summer once the schedule is released for the 2017-18 season.
