what i dont understand is the increase in price across the board. last year they had seats start at 10 bucks, this year its 16. and as far as i know all the other prices generally went up a few bucks as well. "but, but, but chuck, they decreased season ticket prices." youre right they did, but the bruins =/= the red sox, and they dont have that much pull in the city yet to be doing this.

fwiw, last year i hit well over a dozen games. this year i think ill count em on one hand! but, thats why they created the hd plasma
I agree 100%. I can see them raising the prices for the Hab games - they will sell out -but couldnt they lower the prices of the Florida Panther games to get more fans in? Its seems one sided. The Bruins ranked 26th out of 30th in the NHL in home attendance and they are jacking up some prices? Ouch...it is an interesting crossroads - whereas they need revenue and dont seem to be getting enough new customers so they stick it to the current customers....
