    The cheapest ticket in Toronto is 108 bucks? I know there's the whole US to canadian dollar conversion thing, but that still seems really expensive.

    Holy Moly the Vegas prices are worse. However I clicked on the link just for curiousity sake and the upper bowl is 85 bucks. That's more reasonable.

    I like that others are now obsessed with the seat price like me :laugh:

    Box seats on the blue line in LA for $50 tonight

    $8 tickets in CAL? Oil prices that low, or is Mikko Koivu(Finland's answer to Connor McDavid) not as big of a draw as you might think?

    The team is in first place, that should be good enough.

    Honestly, who sells tickets for $8 in Calgary?

    If you pay much more than that to sit in the Press Level in the Saddledome you're actually getting ripped off lol. Terrible sight lines, have to hike up 20 flights of stairs every time to go to your seat, long lineups for the bathrooms and for beer just to have the drunken jabroni next to you kick it over. They had to put up 3 jumbo tron screens up there just so people could follow the action.

    Incredibly there is still no viable plan for a new arena 15 years later.

    20 flights of stairs seems prohibitive.

    Saddledome isn't the greatest arena. Calgary definitely needs a new one.

    There's always talk about attendance but I think the best indicator of attendance might be how much tickets are going for on sites like Stubhub. I look at the ticket prices in Calgary and my question becomes, is Attendance in Calgary really that bad? I know they have arena issues, but the team itself isn't bad.

    $8 is an abomination.

    As I have said in the past, just donate them if you are trying to make $12 a ticket.

    I've never, ever, been jealous of a Flames fan....

    But man, you get to go to a game for 8 bucks?

    I bet the ticket prices goes up 5X's when the Blue and White get to town :)

    (wait, 5X is only $40 bucks....this is bloody insane)

    A family bucket of KFC chicken is worth more than a barrel of Alberta oil...

    The KFC bucket probably contains more oil than a barrel.

    You mean, before a single game starts, people are talking about that ticket prices, and that you feel is derailing a chat....

    a chat that is occurring before a single game has started?
