Are you really getting $75+ worth of entertainment watching a hockey game at an arena? Even if it's a good game, that's a lot of cash. Nevermind paying $150, $250 or higher.
You aren't even guaranteed it'll be a good game. I can't imagine how ripped-off I'd feel if paying those prices watching an extremely dull defensive game or blowout.

There are so many better ways to spend my money, especially since I prefer to watch an HD feed on my 60" HDTV in the comfort of my own home.
Exactly. I can afford NHL tickets, but I'm way too smart with my money to bother with this nonsense any more. Used to go to games in the early and mid 90s when prices were more reasonable. Think my first Leafs tickets were low Greens for around $25 in 1991. Now, that same level of seat at the ACC would be around $200 or more.

No thanks. I get tickets given to me every so often, only way I'd go these days. Just a massive ripoff. No value there at all.
