Sorry, the average seating price is $70 for Rexall.

Included in that 18.200 are 5000 luxury seats(Suites, sky paddock, loge, club paddock seating) that are classed and priced as "Luxury" "Premium" seats and all offering to your seat service. Guess what such seats will cost or what they tend to cost in other rinks? I'll also note that in many rinks such seating has additional surcharges and for instance having to buy the seat, or table(in addition to tickets) for a term much like you would for a suite. These 5K premium seats are in addition to the lower bowl seats which will also be premium priced seats.
As I've stated many times this is really a blueblood pricing arena with around 12-13K tickets that will be high priced. Which is in marked contrast to the present arena.

This not even mentioning the revenues brought in from the resto/lounges that are part of the new arena plan. Or any revenues from Wintergarden etc.
You're assuming these numbers are for the Katz arena. What is being debated here is the plan for the city to build their own arena, which there have been zero details about. The only way you're going to gauge at this point is to take the average ticket price of Rexall and transfer that over to a proposed new arena built by the city, which is $70.
