It's really hard to make your money back on Row 1 seats during the regular season (and I struggled to break even on them even during the playoffs). I dumped mine in the middle of Section 225 on Thursday morning and they are still available, so the "smart money" subscribers have figured this out.

Barring that, MSG will be stuck using them either as "forced" entry tickets for new subscribers or selling them as single game seats. Which, as pointed out, may not be a bad economic decision for Jimbo and friends.
Those Row 1 seats are overpriced as heck on StubHub. It's getting impossible for a "casual" ticket buyer (what does that even mean) to be able to buy tickets fairly priced. People see the Row 1 prices, and skip them right away. They were going for $250+ a pop last season.
