But correct in that TML will charge double what NYI will because they can. Regardless, my money won't go to pay for a 15 year phenom or to redecorate Charlie's bidet.
I don't know what the numbers are, but I'm curious what the ticket prices were pre-post each lockout, league-wide. Maybe I'll google it.

I remember reading that it was cheaper to fly to Tampa and watch a Lightning game, than go to a Leafs game, which is pretty astounding.

I wonder how much the non-hockey-markets struggle for gate receipts and have to lower prices, add a bunch of incentives like free parking or free games in order to sell tickets...and how they are impacted when there's a work stoppage.

I imagine this is a relatively small percentage of overall league revenues so it's probably not that much of an impact.
