I get it that they want as many of their own fans as possible...but this is hardly the way to go about it.
I doubt this stops many travelling Hawks fans from coming to Nashville this season. Nosebleeds were $99 in Chicago last time they won the Cup. Tickets for two games in Nashville, plus travel and lodging, are not going to run as much as good seats at the United Center this season. It may be the only way the hordes of counterfeit jersey wearing Hawks fans can see their team play live this year.
