because the fan base has to feel that tickets are difficult to get and, therefore, are inclined to purchase them in advance. If people believe they can always get tickets at the door, they may change their mind when it's -30 or if Crosby is injuried. this is why advanced sales are preferred. many studies have been conducted and the number crunches have concluded that the happy medium between more seats and a perception of scarcity is 18 500.
