I agree with your seating price comment, but I doubt you would be complaining if [Philly were in a position to get a couple of those #1 picks]. I hardly think the NBA is the right model to follow for any aspect of the NHL's rebuilding, except marketing tactics maybe. Talk about a ridiculously over-priced league with lax reffing. It's now normal for guards to palm the ball all night long and never get called for it. Ghetto-ball city.

The NBA sucks.
