Whats the most youve paid/would pay for Habs tickets (season and/or playoffs)

Hey guys i was talking with my friend tonight, and he told me that one of his coworkers just paid 1200$ for a pair or reds for the last leafs game this season....at the bell center...

I found that insane...

most i paid was whats on the ticket actually...never over
Most i would pay is maybe double for anything in the upper ring for playoffs...but would probably pay 300$ if it was game 7 of the Cup finals

how bout you guys?

Most I've paid is like $200 for a pair of blues (regular season). I have no idea how much I'd give for a 7th game of the Finals, though. A LOT.

it was something like $1400 right behind those dang cameras at the Bell Centre. It was ridiculous, luckily for me my cousin had company tickets and switched with me to be right behind the Penguins bench. One of the most amazing games I ever saw.

I live in Windsor, Ontario and I pay to see my habs play Detroit whenver they're in town. The most I've paid is $78 for a ticket. If the Habs play Detroit in the Finals this year (I'm really hoping for this) I have told everyone I know that I would pay up to $500 for a Cup finals ticket to see my Habs play.

Hey don't make fun of my future husband.

I'd be willing to pay 250-300 per ticket for a playoff game. Maybe not all the playoff games... but definitely to be there once during any given year's playoff run.

I paid $500 to a scalper for 4 tickets to games 3 and 4 in the 1989 Cup finals in Montreal. Around center ice about halfway up.....

Not sure how that would relate to today, with inflation factored in.

Considering half way up would put you either high red or low desjardins...

and that those are going for 300$ a ticket...
you spent the equivalent of 1200$ all and all...you screwed the scalper over considering that a scalper would sell each today for 600$ easily

Same here. I'd give a lot for a 7th game of the Finals featuring the Habs. Like a family member or an organ.

My friend just bought some whites for the playoffs at $140 a pop. That seems about right.

Last playoffs, I managed to score game 6 tickets in the blues for $80 each. Too bad it was one of the most deflating experiences of my life.

The most i paid was $590 for a pair of tickets in the 100's this season against Detroit, plus i drove from Ottawa to see the game.

Most i'd pay would be $700 for a pair for a playoff game.

I paid 200$ for a ticket in the reds (dont remember where exactly) for the Geoffrion ceremony.

I'd pay up to 500$ for a stanley cup final game. Not more than that though.

Most I paid: $460 ($230 each) for upper level's at the ACC for our first Saturday game this year. Stupid Kaberle in OT.

Cup Finals, I'd pay around $1,000 for my own ticket.

No they have a few insane priced seats.
But to sit lower bowl in Scotia Bank PLace just go see a scalper you will pay less than face vlue every time.

My father had tickets to game one of the 93 finals and someone offered him 2000 dollars a piece for his four tickets.

He didn't take it

Good chocie by your father. Watching your team win the cup is something you keep with yourself for a lifetime.

8 grand is nothing compared to that.

I recently paid $1950 for 4 tickets in Sec 124 Row CC for the last game against the Leafs. Real pricey but me and the other three guys don't get together much anymore and we agreed we'd do it for our road trip to Montreal.
