Playoff ticket face value prices are set by the NHL, not the individual teams. That's why STH tickets can end up with different face values than what is sold individually. The league also requires teams to hold a certain number of seats in each building for each game. If the Flyers wanted to sell 20,000 tix per game, they are not allowed until the league says so. When I was a kid, that was the only way into the Spectrum -- go the day of the game and wait at the window for tickets to be released. Then spend the day in Philly and come back to the arena for the game.

They're hoping more people will go watch Leighton play to help cover his contract.

You are on a hotdog roll my son! Sadly, I think LOL-EIGHTON will be on the roster next year

If that's true, then it's a new thing since the lockout. I know when I had season tickets and got playoff tickets I was reading about the pricing of the Flyers v. some other markets, and Detroit, for example, was a LOT more expensive. Detroit also stepped up their prices by round dramatically, and the Flyers were actually quoted as saying they were staying away from that.

I've been having heartburn lately, and considering this only makes it worse.

Well if it makes you feel better I've had some bad bouts of IBS and the Flyers aren't helping. I think the dung in my bowl is more attractive than how the Flyers have played some of the contending teams of late. The Wash game was at least high tempo and they worked but the goaltending took off that night sadly. I'm hoping Bob salvages a win tomorrow...

Team definitely has a say in it. It might even be that the team submits figures and the league must approve it. No matter what, the league has the final say. Maybe before the lockout, this didn't go on because there wasn't a cap and as much public knowledge of revenues? I know in the old days, it used to be many teams had to make the playoffs to be profitable, so maybe they got more control of pricing, and kept more of the gate? (I'm also working right now, so I can't look this up, sorry) For those who don't know (not you), the league and the teams make their biggest gate profits during the playoffs, because players are paid fixed rates by round.
And Detroit was a championship-level team while the Flyers had not yet shown that, which I'm sure factored into pricing. In '06, Carolina's SCF uppers were $125, while in Edmonton, they were getting $200. Last year, I believe there was more parity between Philly and Chicago prices, but the are more similar markets.

I did just talk to my tix rep (for something else), and he did say that face value for all seats will follow a similar graduated scale as the STH increases. First row uppers will be $85 face, go back a few rows and you are in the $70s, get up to Rows 7-8 and you should be in the $60s for face value. And there will still be premium games that STH won't pay additional money for. Of course, one of those premium games is NOT a potential WC, which is usually operated separately from STH packages. So, not only was there an increase, but if the Flyers host the WC, STH will likely have to shell out a few more bucks to attend that game, too.

A 23 percent increase to see a middling Rags team is much worse than what Flyers fans are facing. I'm not happy about the increases, but Flyers fans are not alone in seeing princes jump ... a lot.
How are you coming up with your 74 and 87 % increases? There are STH seats this year at $10 each?

No problem.

I'd love to know what the new face values will be for all of these new ticketing zones, uppers and lowers

Is there information on what the 11 game plans will cost? Obviously, those prices are going to go up too...

Check the other premiere teams in the league and see what they are charging.

(and I don't want to hear about Atlanta, Florida, Phoenix, Carolina, etc)

They are franchises without a fanbase.
