"The why do the Rangers still sell 80% of their tickets while being the laughingstock of the NHL? When you combine the record they have had over the last 7 years, they have got to be in the top 3 of worst overall records, I highly doubt that folks would stop coming, if that were the case they would have stopped 2-3 years ago."

You are still not talking about watching scab labor. That is an entirely different animal. The Rangers WILL sell their tickets for fans to see Rangers play. However, said fans are not paying NHL prices to see scab labor. That is if they are paying anything at all to see it.

True Blue,

Besides the Sabres lowering prices. The Stars (don't know the %), Pens (around 15%), and the Caps (around 13%) also lowered ticket prices for the upcoming season. I know the Pens and Caps lowered their prices prior to the lockout.
