    Pricing for the Winter Classic this year seems really strange. The purple $215 seats near the field will be some of the worst seats in the building. Even the $350 brown seats don't seem like they're high enough up to have a good view. The dark blue $125 seats at center ice should be great.

    Is this STH pricing?

    I don't think they have special pricing for STHs - the "special" deal is you get first dibs on the tickets. All the ticketing is usually handled by the NHL, not the clubs. It's not included in your season tickets - instead of charging STHs for 41+3 games, they get charged for 40+3, with the option to buy the WC.

    In 2015-6, the NHL gave allotments to the Bruins, Habs, and Gillette Stadium, as well as keeping some themselves. All groups ran independent presales with their allotments - I know the Bruins gave 11-game plan holders the chance to buy 2 tickets per account. Mine in 17th row of 237 in Gillette were just a little over $195 each including all fees ($175 base price), and the comparable seats here look like either the blue or the red ($125-$145). These look a lot cheaper - I guess the decline of the Hawks combined with the location? I imagine a few Notre Dame alums would be interested in returning over the holiday break.

    But AFAIK, primary sale prices were fixed for the WC, and tickets went fairly quickly. I do agree that lower definitely wasn't better...or, at least, it didn't look that way.

    So are we getting a new scoreboard and some renovations for the 18/19 season?

    New scoreboards for 18/19? Kinda doubtful. Scoreboards are a pretty big deal, and I think JJ's attention is on the Hub crap that's been going on outside. If they do, I really, really want one with live player stats (current game's TOI, G-A-P for 10 skaters on ice), like every modern arena has. It's a bit ridiculous that they JUST figured out last season how to display the shot count during a PP/PK.

    I vaguely remember hearing something about a new scoreboard either during the 2014/5 or 2015/6 State of the Bruins, back when they had it in the fall in the early evening, instead of before a matinee. But it was definitely a "we'll do it after we renovate the concourses" answer, which would be right about...well, NOW.

    I think the next big thing they're going to do is some renovations on the south side (301 area). There was talk about changing up the 9th floor, and/or adding some SRO areas. I don't know if that comes before or after a new jumbotron.

    There's also a new Zamboni on the wishlist of every player on the ice, particularly those who have been injured. The Olympia just isn't cutting it, literally.

    Anyone else get their time for the Winter Classic presale? Looks like 11AM on 7/23 for me. We already have a flight and hotel booked!

    According to Fluto at the beginning of last season, they plan to have a new scoreboard "by 2019." I agree with you - I'd love to have live player stats.

    I was able to get 6 tickets to the Winter Classic in row 12 of section 111 this morning for $843.00. I will sell these for face value to anyone that buys my three preseason games for face value (3 tickets @$59 a ticket for each game) Let me know if anyone is interested.

    Are the Bruins now selling tickets to the STH?

    Yup. My window is tomorrow. STHs can buy 6 tickets per account if they did early renewal (3/2 IIRC), or 2 otherwise. Not 100% sure if it’s worth it, but not 100% sure it’s a bad deal, either.

    The seat location listed above is roughly on the blue line

    No they decided to hold off until next summer when the seats will be replaced and the building will be closed for 2 months.

    This coincides with the rebuilding of the ice plant correct?

    Is anyone else having problems listing Winter Classic tickets bought as a STH on Ticketmaster?

    I've been going back-and-forth with both the Bruins and with TicketsNow/Ticketmaster/NHL Ticket Exchange (honestly, pick a name, people!) for the past 48 hours, with absolutely no progress - I literally can't sell them because the "sell" button is greyed out. I see there are other tickets that are definitely on resale. Perhaps from "preferred resellers"?

    I'm not particularly happy about having a 48 hour time-out. I've sold regular season tickets on Ticketmaster before with no problem, but this just seems to be taking forever.

    @Ladyfan - I finally got an email today.

    My nephew uses the tickets now because obviously I am working at most games, My account number startles my rep as it goes back to 1975 when Jacobs computerized the tickets but the account has been active since 1946. My parents' seats in the old Garden were prime (Sec 88 Row E) in the First Balcony.

    Speaking of matinees, for the record, they added an extra matinee at the end of March that they just announced yesterday (and made three other minor half-hour time shifts):



    The schedule changes seem to be live on the Bruins website and TicketMaster, but are lagging on Ace and StubHub (not that you should be buying those tickets from any of those sites quite this early unless you really, really need a perfect seat.)

    It's interesting - there are fewer early games this year. We have 5 true weekend matinees (before 4 PM), and one holiday matinee (Columbus Day.) Last year, it was six matinees - but 3 were holidays (Columbus, Black Friday, and MLK), with only 3 true weekend matinees. But last year they also had 3 "Maine-tenees" at 5 PM - late enough that it's not a true matinee, but early enough that folks from Maine can get home at a semi-reasonable hour. There's only 1 of those this year.
