    The only logical explanation is to move them all to Canada. Oh wait.

    Florida had season tickets for like 250 the other year.

    I wish I lived in a smaller market instead of leaf tickets costing 300 bucks for crap seats.

    $14.90 to watch the Oilers is still a rip-off

    Last week there were Oiler tickets going for $7 on StubHub. That's cheaper than what a beer costs at Rexall.

    I have a good job and make good money but there is no way I would be able to pay the price for season ticket at the bell center.
    The cheapest seat are 90$ and you cannot even see the player numbers from that spot.
    I sometime envy these small markets.

    Not much different for Washington right now.
     
  13. Those are the nose bleed seats in Edmonton.

    And besides, people are having a hard time giving away tickets.

    Why waste your time on a weekday night to see a team lose?

    And this isn't the team selling the tickets that cheap, they still get the face value price. The poor saps who bought up a bunch of tickets to re-sell them are taking a huge hit right now.

    This just in - losing hockey isn't fun to watch. Especially when you lose in soul-sucking manner like the Oilers and Coyotes.

    If you aren't in a big hockey market, people won't pay to see a loser on a weekday. No big deal.

    You can buy tickets for tonight's Sharks game for as low as $12.50.

    If teams don't play well fans tend to respond regardless of where you are located.

    The Blackhawks were almost dead last in attendance for 10+ years until they started winning again. Look at them now.

    I would say Chicago has a better pool of fans to pull from than AZ & FL, but when EDM starts winning again that place will be just as annoying as it was in 2006.

    No need to re-hash this topic again.

    Short version: this is how secondary ticket markets are supposed to work
