I'm keeping my eye on Konstantin Koltsov for Belarus, the Russian Pascal Dupuis, that is the Dupuis before this season.

Look at all the empty seats. I thought it was a big deal there?

There is a thread on the international board about how ridiculous the ticket prices are for the tourny. Even Datsyuk called them out on it in a post game interview.

To get to watch the thunderous matchup of Fin-Fra costs only 156 :laugh:

About $200.

mpp9 05-05-2012 04:10 PM

I think it's like $204.

Shrimper 05-05-2012 04:11 PM

€156 is around $204.

I'm hoping that some of the better players will be FA's we can watch and try and get.

Gumbercules 05-05-2012 04:13 PM

Shero and Bylsma are over there watching in person.

Big McLargehuge 05-05-2012 04:14 PM

None of my Finnish friends are going to any of the games because of the cost of tickets. They were complaining that they'd be pricey even if it were the Olympics.


I don't care how hockey crazy a nation is...$204 to see two different nations play a game in an annual tournament isn't going to sell well.

eXile59 05-05-2012 04:15 PM

You think they would make more money if they lowered them. You would get more people buying & make more off of concessions.

Saku11 05-05-2012 04:31 PM

Yep its 204 dollars. How much do tickets to Super Bowl cost?

Darth Vitale 05-05-2012 04:41 PM

Those prices are ****ing absurd. I could see if it were a Canada-Russia final or something and the seats near the glass were that much... otherwise it's a joke. Those tickets should be $50 max.

Does anyone know who Malkin is playing with?

a street level suite at this past super bowl was $600,000 haha

The cheapest seat you could get was over $2,000 for nosebleeds a few weeks before it

Datsyuk is my guess.

Scientific proof Americans put way too much emphasis on the importance of football. There isn't a sporting even on the planet I'm paying $2000/seat for (especially bad seats) unless the seat comes with an 18 year old stripper who lap dances me once a quarter with touching allowed. She also has to bring me free Red Robin burgers, fries and Fat Tire beer during every timeout and at half-time. And that's me being "not demanding" if you know what I'm saying. :laugh:

the super bowl in the last few years has turned into an event more than a game anyways. Its not even like most of the people there are huge fans of either team but more people with huge bank accounts. It wasn't like that even a few years ago. I went to the steelers super bowl win in Detroit and we got decent seats for around 500 bucks a piece (still pretty hefty but i think its worth it to go once in your life if given the chance). The difference between that game and even ones just a couple years later is that the game was just packed with Steelers fans and it was loud and crazy. Now it just seems like its packed with people attempting to "make an appearance." That always drives ticket prices up because it opens up the market to everyone and not just sports fans.

Darth Vitale 05-05-2012 05:00 PM

Doctr: yep - absolutely the SB is as much a social climbing event as a football game.

I can't imagine coming out of a sporting event & not feeling depressed that I spent 2,000 dollars on it. My car cost 3,000 & has gotten me through 3 years of college.

Lol and i`d probably enjoy the FIN-FRA game more :laugh: . No way those prices should be even legal :help:
