People will buy tickets right before the game starts and eventually they'll sell out? Or do you think it will depend on how they do this week against Atlanta to really get people interested?
I think it's because of the ridiculous nature of the ticket prices. They are becoming way too expensive. I remember 2 years ago, I could go to a game, last row for $8 with the student discount...now they don't give student discounts and last row is $25-$31, depending on what game you're seeing. That's almost a 400% increase. Interesting factoid: I was actually able to purchase last row seats to the Isles/Rangers game at MSG on February 19th on ticketmaster.com ("Best available" was actually last row), and last row seats for Isles/Rangers at MSG is actually cheaper than at Nassau Coliseum! MSG=$29.50; Nassau=$31 Go figure!!! :p
