right now the 200 row 1 gallery seats are $135 for STHs. that's insane if you look at the season ticket prices for row 1 seats in any other NHL arena. and can you imagine increasing it 20% to 162/seat for 41 games...
I agree the Row 1 gallery seat pricing is pushing it. It's actually at or pretty close to full market value imo...which is why I let mine go this summer. But the price of Rows 2+ are actually not terrible. Sure, they are a lot more than they were 5 years ago...but you still won't have a difficult time selling them for $10-$20 a pop over face if you need to unload them. At least as long as the team remains competitive.
