I work at a sports store and cost on the top end Bauer, Easton and Reeboks are about $140-$170. The new CCM is a bit higher, I believe.

Older top-end sticks like the SE16, S17 and S19 range from $72-$91 because they are usually bought in bulk to clear out a manufacturers stock, which is why they can be sold for $119.99-$139.99.
