You guys rather have a low budget team that sucks, thereby guaranteeing unlimited seats for those who want it?

I think its rational behavior to split the season tickets in two if the demand justifies it. Given the winning ways of the Kings, this is expected.

It's called supply-demand. Serving the greater good - the most access for the most fans - is always a good thing.

Kings fans have been lucky since Uncle Phil's actual cash spend on player salaries has been above the salary cap. Guys like Richards and Carter, who count $5mm against the cap, are making ~$8MM in actual salary. You guys rather be St. Louis - who can't afford a trade to get over the top because of internal salary cap? Or the flip-side Toronto, where only corporations can afford tickets?

Kings have a pretty good balance of ticket access and the ability to ice a strong team without concerns about salary. Middle of the pack in ticket prices while having a Stanley Cup contending roster. Sounds like a decent deal to me.
