I'm sure it is a lot easier to sell tickets in section 305 row 4 than it is section 304 row 14, each individual price section has a huge discrepancy in value.
I'm not as financially flexible as it sounds. My seat partner's wife works in an office with a good number of B's fans so I am able to sell both my balcony and loge tickets for at least my cost for most games, even the crappy ones like Florida and NY Islander games. Montreal, Washington, Philadelphia type games I only go to 1 game against each of those opponents and sell the others on Stubhub or Craigslist since they sell at a decent price regardless of location.
I don't mean to minimize the financial burden or the unfair price structure for different seating areas. You are correct that the pricing structure is out of whack in terms of value for seats on the single attack side and and seats in the top 4 or 5 rows. No dispute that for value not renewing is the way to go. JWMGT90 was asking for an opinion on renewing and I was suggesting something else to consider besides value. But if part of the ability to afford ST is being able to sell the games that you don't want to go but can't sell because of poor value then not renewing is probably the right answer.
Also at the last Select-A-Seat there was pretty much nothing available in the balcony on the double attack side or between the blue lines so when deciding to renew based on hoping to relocate to the double attack side keep in mind that it might not be possible to do.
