    You should've tried buying Montreal playoff tickets online last year. Also guaranteed fun.

    yea, right now Ebay has tons of sabre playoff tickets...looking right now, home game #1 2 tickets with a $600 bid with a day left on it. Penguin tickets on there too, home game #1 2 tickets with a bid of $415 with a couple days left... If only I had money.

    Can you imagine if Buffalo plays Toronto or Montreal 1st round? Tickets will be going at rediculous prices. Or if somehow pitt plays toronto/montreal?

    And the people cashing n on all of this is the season ticket holders who get first chance to buy the tickets then they turn around and resell them at a rediculous price.

    In Buffalo you can't get a "collection Sabres medallion", let alone playoff tickets :cry: .

    In Vancouver, you have to buy a ticket just to enable you to get into a line to buy a real playoff ticket.

    Fortunately, in Anaheim there was a presale, so I jumped in on that. :D

    You're getting the stadium. You don't have to validate your fandom anymore.

    It probably won't get ridiculous prices, and I don't usually hoping for a series, but I'm hoping to the hockey gods and goddesses that the Sens and the Pens meet in the first round. Sure seems to be going that way.

    Best first round series IMO.
