The ticket prices in the playoffs are probably over $100 for just the first round. Who can afford these kinds of expenses? How much disposable income do you think people have?

The average ticket price in the league last year was $51.41 (according to http://www.andrewsstarspage.com/inde...since_1994_95/). If you take out the Canadian teams it's $46.56. The Rangers average ticket price was $58.57 (which I find hard to believe that it's that low). The Caps average ticket price was $44.75. According to that site, among American teams, only Philly and Minnesota (basically Canada) have more expensive tickets.
i agree. i would love to go to a playoff game but im a college student and frankly i dont have $150 dollars to spend on a hockey game
