Everything is so damn expensive.

I was able to sell one extra ticket, less than 10 minutes before the game, to a scalper for $150. Not bad...

Selling one ticket is not easy, and so close to the game I'm quite happy that I have being able to get rid of it for a decent price.

A few weeks ago against the Habs, scalpers absolutely didn't want our extra ticket, at any price.

Yep. Does stubhub even let you sell individual tickets?

The place is sold out, raise the ticket prices 10$ and it would still be sold out. So even then the Molsons aren't THAT greedy, because I'm sure they could make even more (but everyone would hate them).

Look guys here's the trick.

There's like 7 games that are not even on in English on TV. They are like against Miami, Long Island & Columbus. Those are the ones anyone can get. Most of us won't even watch those & take the girls out instead.... those 7 or so will go below or at par. if you play cards right out of town & really wan't to get in for a game.

They might not even be sold out....

I know it sucks, but if your from out of town & really want to get in move on those, you might get them. hey Long Island is
regional... not that bad!

Habs organization was in a terrible shape when Gillet bought it from Molson. With his business and marketing know-how, Gillet transformed the business until something hugely successful. Due to rather unfortunate circumstances, he had to sell it. And it's back to the Molson, the owner who left this business in a very bad shape in the first place.

Sorry but I can't help but be very suspicious about the Molson ownership.

Interesting comment. Please expand...(600mil is a lot of $%^&* money! wondering how long will they be owners this time...will we ever witness the Habs' value at 1 billion dollars?! 2020? 2025?).

And...
Molson re-bought the Habs for 600million... Silly question, maybe?! What was the price when they first bought it? (before Gillette bought the Habs for 200million). Not even sure how many owners (not many?) there were before Gillette.

And..yes this whole ''supply and demand'' really sucks for a lot of true fans out there that just can't afford to go to the games live (rip-off prices) or get RDS (good though that CBC shows the Habs on Saturdays). IMO, these ticket prices are for 2020 or 2025, not 2011. As they say...people are willing to pay...ticket prices will keep going higher and higher.

the answer has been said and it's simple: supply & demand and the supply is limited to 41 games/year. prices will keep going up ever so slowly until molson sees a few seats empty, at which point prices will fall down until they meet a nice equilibrium. and there's other factors involved as well such as how is the team playing. if the team is doing badly, more seats will remain empty

sucks for people who can't afford tickets at those prices, but if people have the means to afford those tickets, then good on them.

Not really, I'd gladly pay $100 for Ex tickets to see the team I love. I've sat in the highest seat in the Bell Center and it was still an amazing experience worth $100 minimum.


You guys should be happy that you don't have to pay for hotels + airfare on top of the ticket prices you guys pay imo

I don't think the Molsons are faulty here. The problem since beginnning of the year was product problems. The team on the ice sucked which resulted in poor quality product for the price of the tickets. It's like the coaching staff including GM were thinking too much in terms of playing conservative and thinking the long way. We failed, Pearn got fired and suddenly we forcheck like never before, the Bell center is loud and we're thinking about 1 game at the time now instead of long term which results in better product quality and happy fans

Speaking of this, does anybody know why there were a lot of empty seats down in Saturday's game against the Bruins? I mean it's Saturday night, it's Boston, there should be no empty seats. But those bright red empty seats were really clashing.

Yeah I noticed that too. It was really disappointing to see the red section really clear out with 2-3 min left in the third. What the hell was that?

Don't forget that the USD was killing the CAD at the time Gillett bought, which was really hard on Canadian teams (not just MTL). Plus Montreal was still in the dumps in terms of economy (actually, he bought at just the right time). Since then housing prices and real estate has shot up in value to an incredible degree. I wouldn't worry about the Molsons - Gillett just made a wise financial investment in the Habs, that's all.

I fear the day the Bell Center is corporate-boring like the Leafs arena.

I'm not sure how street scalpers can still operate.

THey must buy & sell Hard tickets only. E-tickets are too easy to be fake

Have you ever parked in the bell center's indoor garage? I had the "chance" to do it once (I had messed up my knee and was in crutches in winter), it took like an hour to get out of there after a game.

I think a lot of the people leaving early is to avoid this. Which IMHO is stupid, you might as well stay home if you're in such a hurry to get back there!
