I call that the boy who cried Wolf, personally.
And if we didn't expand a lot of those players wouldn't have an NHL job. Goes both ways.

If players don't get that if teams struggle, there will be issues, that's their problem. Reality is, if expansion teams can have an even playing field, they will grow and in turn they will spend to the cap.

What's better, 10 teams who spend to a high cap or 30 who spend to a slightly lower one?

Its a business. If they play, they play. If they strike, they strike. We have no control over that since there are too many variables beyond our control.

It is frustrating though.

You might be right , but i dunno if i feel it is right .I mean you take 21,000 out, i think it's tough to put another new 21,000 in to be honest.....if demand was so great there wouldn't have been empty seats last year in Bell.....It would take the majority of all fans to buy in , including non season ticket holders etc.....

This isn't like if you don't pay your power bill you lose your electricity, in the NHL if fans stop paying TICKETS prices GO DOWN look at other markets,when fans start staying away out come the we love you ticket prices...


It's a rigged game for NHL, they just keep upping tickets every year, then claim leauge so healthy increased revenue,when it just gouging the fans ,and what do ya get in return? they lock fans out not 1 time not 2 ,now coming on 3 TIMES. So when they do come back SAME OLD STORY we're sorry fans, were back, and will only raise ticket prices 50% in next 5 years.....lol

I love to see the fans fight back,because NHL spits in the fans faces (lockouts)
The player and NHL fight over fans money, i think it's fair the fans start fighting back ,due to seeing how little respect is given to fans .

Your team finishes last , that shouldn't give anyone a right to raise ticket prices it's a joke and it highlight the the problem.

How is it ticket prices NEVER go down? yes because they keep asking for more and fans pay it ....taking out bank loans to pay for season tickets....will there be a day were you can buy season tickets and pay over 5 years for them just like a car? lol




It's really out of hand when it's cheaper to fly south to watch hockey.....retarded...

The Maple Leafs, about to miss the playoffs for the seventh straight season, aren't raising ticket prices in 2012-13.

Subscribers were notified this week by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment that the hockey club would hold the line, as expected, given the already heavy price and lack of success to justify an increase. According to Team Marketing Report at the start of the season, the Leafs led the NHL with an average ticket price of $123.77 US, more than twice the NHL average of $57.39.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The National Hockey League’s (NHL’s) Anaheim Ducks announced today the club’s season ticket pricing for the 2012-13 campaign. All ticket prices will either be reduced or remain flat. The average season ticket price will decrease 4.8%, with reductions ranging from 2% to 35% per ticket. In total, 40% of season ticket holders will see a reduction in price, with 60% remaining flat to this season.

Season tickets prices for the 2012-13 season start at just $12 per game. Examples of the ticket price reduction include: Terrace Main East ($34 reduced to $22), Terrace Main West ($34 to $24), Terrace Lower East ($40 to $35). The club will also reduce prices on some Plaza level (lower bowl) seating to $50. Ducks season ticket holders are always guaranteed the lowest price on game tickets.

Would You Pay Over $200 For A Pre-Season Game Ticket?



from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

When the Canadiens and the Bruins staged a rematch at the Bell Centre Monday night, there were a few family zone tickets in the $20-41 range, but the top price for a platinum seat was $249. Fans in the Club Desjardins section paid $206, but they were also able to stuff themselves with hot dogs and soda.

It should be noted that the fans received a bit of break because the Canadiens are one of the growing number of teams which have adopted a sliding scale of ticket prices and fans are required to pay a premium for certain games. For example, when the Bruins play at the Bell Centre on Feb. 15, the top ticket will cost $406. The whites - think nosebleed territory - start at $120.

And what did the fans get to see for their money? A hybrid Canadiens lineup with more hopefuls than established NHLers.

The average NHL ticket price has increased 39% since 2004 when Gary Bettman promised fans a salary cap would lower ticket prices.”

Completely childish idea. The players would probably laugh at this idea thinking how retarded some fanatic fans are.

Stop dreaming you are as important as the players. That you are on the same level as them. You guys aren't. Get back to your daily jobs.

I agree with you.

However, like someone said earlier that makes the most sense.......its like throwing ice cubes at the sun.
