Have they always had yellows? (the first row of the whites) That looks new to me for some reason. Either way I'll definitely try to get some of those. The very front/middle of the whites are the best seats in the house

yes they restructured the seating classes so that they can optimize prices.

in english: they are raising prices to make more money lol

it is unfortunate, but they are running a buissiness, and the demands will continue to be there depsite the prices.

as much as i would prefer to sit red, or first row whites, i am fine with settling for corner whites or grey, these are the best value imo

Last year the whole section around were called whites but you had to pay a little more for the first row..now you have to pay even more if they are centered first row, hence the new yellow

The service fee is really expensive. If I buy a 10-game pack.. does it mean I get charged $9.75 x 10 = $97.5?

Am I crazy or are the prices way higher than last season? Those 9,95$ fees per tickets are the deal breaker.
Will try to get single tickets and other than that will watch from confort of my home...

That's what caught my eye as well. I was thinking of trying to buy the 10 game pack but now i'm just completely turned off by it. Who charges those "Fees" and in who's pocket does that profit go?

Service fees of around 25%... That's just awful. They spent a lot of time trying to mask ticket price increases.

On top of that, it's cheaper to purchase games individually than it is to purchase a package? How does that work? (12 to 20% more???)

And of course, the inclusion of a pre-season game in every package is also quite a nice touch. Yes, pre-season games cost as much as regular season games, makes sense....

I was gonna go for a 5-game package against the Western conference teams, but then I realized... 193$ in Molson Ex Zone is only for one ticket. So you have to double that ammount, and then you add a 100$ just out of fees? That brings it to 500$...thats some crazy stuff right there.

I was going to look at a 5 game pack, but with all those fees and whatnot, I won't buy anything. I'll use the ticket thread over here to buy some whenever I have the cash. They are really going overboard with the damn single ticket fees.

I think it's more expensive if you get a 5 game pack then if you buy it individually

For the Canadian teams pack, zone molson ex, 5 games x 2 tickets:

$179 + $179 + $97.5 = $455.50 --> $45.55 per person per game.

For zone molson ex, if you buy them indivdually:

$29 for regular games, $41 for optimum games (+ 9.75 fees)

They're charging a premium to get multiple games.

If you want to buy 5 games individually you'd need 5 separate credit cards (though that hasn't stopped me in the past).

is that factoring in service fees to the individual tickets? Because it seems to me that would be the only advantage to buying a package.

Man it's almost worth the 40% tacked on to eBay prices to avoid the headache of buying your tickets straight from the Habs lol

I might go for marquee in the gray if i can get the B row...great seat and a wall behind your back.

700$ for a pair for 5 games

BOSTON - Pre-Season
TORONTO
PITTSBURGH
WASHINGTON
CHICAGO

i'd sell the leafs one since the crazy leafs fan pays up to 250$ for a pair on ebay...
Maybe another one if i can get the saqme price range...

would cost 200$ for 2games + 1 pre-season...not bad
