Bettman preached how the Lockout was for the fans, how the Salary cap would help reduce ticket costs, yea right, all it does is increase owner profit margin!
Or, do it right and buy a HD front projector. I absolutely agree with you that it's a better value watching from the comfort of your own home...and with a 110" HD screen you see all the action way before Sam and Joe do. I have two pairs of seasons, but I definitely think the value proposition is eating and drinking like a king at home watching on the giant screen and still having a fistful of dollars left over afterwards. Yes, watching playoff hockey live is great. But if I didn't have seasons I couldn't see myself paying market value to go very often.
