Do we get free tickets (yeah right, one can hope though!) or reserved tickets we can choose to take or no priviledge at all...

$100 admin fee. No biggie all things considered...

The All-Star Game is an "NHL event" and not a Montreal Canadiens event. The last I heard was the NHL has most of (if not all) the lower bowl and Desjardins seats. Canadiens season tickets would have limited access in the upper levels. When I spoke to my rep.. they were not sure how it would all shake out, but a max of 2 tickets... and it would be some sort of lottery where variables could include the price of your seats and/or how long you have had them. So someone who has had Reds for 50 years will have a much better chance than someone whom has had Blues for 2 years. This is not confirmed, but some ideas they were discussing a few weeks ago.

Hey guys !

I'm thinking of getting a pair of tickets for any game next year through internet. (Admission.com, not EBAY) What are the chances that I can get tickets.

If you're not particular about which game, just be patient the day they go on sale... I'm sure you'll be able to get something.

I quickly skimmed through this thread and didn't see anyone post a date. I also went on the Habs website and I couldn't find a date either. When do the habs single game tickets go on sale?

Well, if there's no date here, nor on the Habs website, I think it's safe to say it hasn't been announced yet

Just going on a limb here either sat sept 13 or sat sept 20. Last year was the 15th also a saturday.

8/11 Hawks (5 days notice)
8/16 Blues (20 days notice)
9/13 Bruins
9/19 BlueJackets
9/20 Sabres Ducks Pens

My money is on sept 20 and most sites that didn't have a date yet said check back in early september so everyone will probably know then

OT - Coming to Montreal - need help

Hi guys.
I'm starting to plan a trip to Montréal in march.
Of course, the main reason is I'd like to attend one or two Habs games. But from France, it's even harder for me to get tickets.
Is it possible for me to book individual tickets from here -phone, web- when they start selling them (and when are they gonna start selling?), or do you have to go there in person?
If not, what are my other options, given the fact that I'm far from being a millionaire?
I checked what to do in MTL thread and ticket exchange thread but couldn't find the answers.
I really need to settle things before starting booking plane tickets and so on.

A little help from you guys would be a blessing, thanks.

PS: I'm not a millionaire, but I would be pleased to grab a beer with some of you when I'm there. Heck, I'll even pay a round if you can help me get those tickets

I can try to get you some tickets. If I'm lucky I can get some for you. You want a pair or a single ticket?

Thanks man.
Single ticket would be perfect. I'll be there one week, between march 20 and april first, depending on the tickets I can get. I guess it's extra hard to get tickets for the leafs game (march 21), so I'm targeting two games, Thrashers and Lightning (24 and 26), Lightning and Sabres (28) or Sabres and Blackhawks (31).
If you can help me, be sure you'll end up with something good from France (a bottle of good wine, anything...).

I just wanted to throw this out there....

I am planning a trip to Montreal for the Rangers on 12/4. I've already booked a hotel room at Loews Hotel Vogue. I've checked Stub Hub...the prices are outrageous. If there's anyone out there looking to get rid of tickets for Tuesday night (12/4)...please send me a PM. I don't mind paying a little extra. Just not double the face value.

Much appreciated,



PAUL

Double is what you will pay from scalpers.
Its not that bad if your up top though 80-100$ for a pair.

I believe that's the "100th birthday" night for the Habs, so I think if you can get them for double now, go for it. It'll only get worse as it gets publicity.

Paul, no way in hell you will be able to get tkts for less than $100 a piece.
It's the openning of the centennial.

You should easily find decent seats for the Leafs (+/- $75) with scalppers, being a thursday Leafs Nation won't be in town and their should be more availability than an usual saturday night Leafs-Habs game.

For saturday against the Caps it could be a little more difficult and expensive. How funny that the Caps (usually visited during the week) will now be in Montreal on 2 saturdays and are now considered optimum games. Ovechkin/Theodore I guess ...

Once my package is confirmed with the habs, I will have between 5 and 10 to sell to the washington game. How much are your buddies willing to spend? They are in the Molson Ex Zone.

Single Game Tickets

Hello Hab Fans, visiting fan here looking to buy single team tickets to a Habs game some time in February. The prices as listed on stub hub seem to be pretty outrageous as compared to the prices put up on the official web site, so I was wondering if any of you guys know when single game tickets go on sale. My guess would be some time in early September.

Also, have you guys found it best to order via the phone or the internet? I've had mixed results with both in the past.

Thanks in advance.
