Unfortunately the Kings got good just as I moved to LA so I missed out on a similar (but not quite so extreme) experience here. Even with the Kings having recently won a cup and being in contention this year I was still able to get great lower bowl seats for the season opener against the Rangers for $118 per seat on stubhub. Similar seats for the MSG opener against the Habs are $170 at the cheapest.

Also, what's up with the bridge tickets to the opener going for $230?! That's a lot of money to be among the first group of people to be able to definitively declare that seeing a game from the bridges sucks.
That's actually a low markup compared to what other seats are going for. Face is ~$150, so at $230 we're only talking 50%. I can get 100% over face on mine easy.
