Objectively speaking coming from a fishies fan here the blueshirts played an outstanding game. Domination to say the least..they looked like a hungry playoff team to me. great hustle, great games by Cally, Avery and company

tough schedule ahead and those (2) points were vital and they played like it. Good luck the rest of the way and hold on tight lol

Yeah, Vali wears #40 and it's no big help... Richter, on the other hand...
Henrick answered my call. That was it.

From my experience up in the 400's it wasn't too bad and there was about 10% Devil fans at MSG. I know its not the 35% that show up in N.J but, we were there.

We'll never hit the 30%-35% numbers like they do because their fan base is simply larger. There are 8,300,000 people just in NYC alone, not to mention all the people that live from Albany on down that are Rangers fans as well as western Connecticut. It's a huge geographic/demgraphic area.

The only time I've seen 25% or 30% at MSG was that one playoff game when the Devils were up 3-0, but IMO, that was only because STH dumped. I bought one for $35 DOG in the 300s, and while I cant remember the exact price, I know that was below face.

Also, the other thing that drives the disparity IMO is ticket prices. Rangers fans can buy reasonably priced tickets to The Rock, whereas from a Devils fan's perspective, ticket prices at MSG seem like a pretty bad deal, and I think people underestimate the significance of that point.

I didn't realize supply and demand was a hard concept to grasp. The more you know, I guess.

Regardless, the idea that the Devils are cutting their fans some huge break in ticket prices while the Rangers are just diving for wallets is ridiculous, not that I'd expect anything more from you.

The general price of a ticket to either stadium is pretty much the same; the difference is MSG charges more for extremely cheap seats and extremely expensive seats, and that's the difference. Sitting in the middle bowl of either stadium is going to cost you somewhere between 120 and 80 dollars.

Sure, if you get nosebleeds at the Rock, you are only paying like 25~, while at MSG you would be paying 50~, and in this economy, if that 25 dollars makes you question if you should go to the game or not, then you are better off staying at home, at least for your own sake (and your family).

Ehhh, Devils fans in Jersey/Rockland area aren't exactly roughing it. If they wanted tickets they could afford them. The difference is that most STH jack up the price for those Rangers/Devils games by like 50% at least. So that's what makes those games so expensive.

I didn't get to see the game, team had practice last night, but i saw highlights...

From the highlights it looks as if the lines were:

Avery - Gomez - Callahan
Zherdev - Drury - Antropov
Sjostrom - Dubinsky - Naslund
Korpikoski - Betts - Orr

Can someone confirm this?

I love those lines. Finally.

So it took you all that to say this:

Thanks.

You're wrong. The entire balcony at The Rock retails for $65, but most games have teaser rates where you can buy those seats for $30 or $35. In fact, the only "middle bowl" tickets that cost about $100 are the center ice ones, which is why no one sits there. Furthermore, they lowered all these "middle bowl" rates for next year to $56, with the only $100 seats being the 1st row of the 2 dead center ice sections ($85 rest of center ice section).

Your kidding? All you got to do is see Penn Station after a game at MSG. Jersey is at least a 50/50 split of Ranger and Devils fans. Then South Jersey is all but Flyers country.

Do you really think there were 1,800+ Devils fans there? I'm not trying to say you are right or wrong, but it sure didnt seem like that many to me... 500, maybe? 1,800??? That seems like a high number...

There's no way it's 50:50. Back in the day it was because the Devils were awful, plus you had all the legacy Rangers fans (Islanders too) since there never was a team in Jersey, but that has mostly died off. You still get a larger concentration of Ranger fans the closer you get to the city, but in the outer counties it's almost all Devils fans. But yeah, South Jersey (especially southwest) is 100% Flopper fans, it's disgusting. No state pride down there, and they deserve the fact that they've now missed out on 3 Stanley Cups and have never seen their team EVER win a Stanley Cup unless they're in their mid-40s!!!!

The way I look at it, if youve got good fans, your home attendance should always be greater than your road attendance. It just...makes sense.

The one exception, i think, is Detroit, which has been just devastated by the economy.
