No doubt, you are absolutely right. I was speaking specifically of the playoff seats (that is what this thread was discussing).

The 400 level seats (not counting obstructed view) are going for $122 on TM. Since they are all gone, and we are blaming Brokers, then Brokers (who know the market) obviously feel they can easily get $160+ for these seats and I agree.
I have 4 Season tickets , and already Sold 2 to Game 1 & 2 on stubhub for $160 (minus the SH vig I net $136 a ticket).

I think the one thing we can all agree on is that the Market for tickets (secondary or otherwise) has changed dramatically in the past 5-10 years.
Parts of it I like (met tickets in upper deck for $1), parts of it I don't.
