I'll probably be keeping mine too...but beyond a half dozen games or so I'll be watching from home. For the price of a few pairs you can build yourself a home theater with a 100+" screen that will give you a better view than you'll have at the Garden.
I feel bascially the same way. I guess what I'm saying is that I feel there is still value in holding the season subscription. I used to go to 20+ games a season, but now it's more like 10-12.
Partnering with one or 2 people who will take a set number of games off your hands definitely helps. Then I sell a few, give some to clients and donate some to the local youth hockey club for auctions and I rarely get "stuck" with tix I cant use.
But yes, it is a VERY expensive proposition. Was much easier to take when I was making money a few years ago!
