On the whole attendance question, if you sell the tickets, you sell the tickets, whether you do so minutes before, or minutes after, the start of the game. How early doesn't really rile me up too much. A sellout is a sellout.
I have a couple of coworkers who are season ticket holders. Typically selling a couple of playoff tickets can really offset or even pay for their playoff tickets. Can't blame them too much.
Yeah, two years ago, there was a pair of STH in my section that used the money they made off playoff tickets to entirely pay for the regular season. So getting season tickets for free isn't too bad a deal.
I've debated it at times, but the major reason I bought season tickets was so I'd have guaranteed playoff tickets.
I'm trying to sell all but games where the Caps can eliminate the Bruins this year, so that's likely all the home games.
I don't even want to think about Chara's tee shot.
His in game shot isn't close to what his competition shot is. Some of its due to just trying to get it 3 or so inches of the ice, but he doesn't really make too many people hobble off the ice quite like Weber does.
