That's true...they have always intended Row 1 in the upper bowl to be a premium seat. And if they can get people to pay $135/$165 for them that's their prerogative. But as nice as these seats are, last time I checked they are still not club seats with waiter service, are 20+ rows from the ice, and only have direct access to the disaster that is now called the 8th floor concourse. None of that really screams premium to me. Bottom line is it's a $50+ or $60+ premium per ticket to have nobody in front of you.
