I would not trust scalped tickets, there are fakes, and for those prices it is not worth taking the chance. People get burned every sporting event.

Prices are going to be ridiculous. The demand is not the same as it was the first couple of years, I got $600 a ticket for the opening game when the new arena opened, for tickets that cost me about $80 each that year.

But with a 10,000 plus person waiting list, and only 43 people giving up their seats last year, it is almost at those levels. Remember almost half the schedule has been elimintated which means fewer games for the demand, and additionally less season ticket holders willing to sell tickets. I divide my play three ways, 8 games is a LOT different than 16 in my desire to sell any of them.

Add to it that the Home opener always will set you back, and you get ridiculous prices. I would suggest choose a game later in the year or bite down and spend the money.

Oh yeah, there is a thread for this stickied above.
