this is pure disrespect ,this is gouging fans period.


Would You Pay Over $200 For A Pre-Season Game Ticket?

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

When the Canadiens and the Bruins staged a rematch at the Bell Centre Monday night, there were a few family zone tickets in the $20-41 range, but the top price for a platinum seat was $249. Fans in the Club Desjardins section paid $206, but they were also able to stuff themselves with hot dogs and soda.

It should be noted that the fans received a bit of break because the Canadiens are one of the growing number of teams which have adopted a sliding scale of ticket prices and fans are required to pay a premium for certain games. For example, when the Bruins play at the Bell Centre on Feb. 15, the top ticket will cost $406. The whites - think nosebleed territory - start at $120.

And what did the fans get to see for their money? A hybrid Canadiens lineup with more hopefuls than established NHLers.
