First opening night i wont be going to in as long as i can recall. Hope you all enjoy, but i wont spend a dime, esp when Wang has the balls to raise ticket prices while teams are selling ssn packages for 200$ and others at 7$ a game.

I will be at the game and just like you won't be spending a dime. Got tickets off stubhub and eating/drinking before the game. Best of both worlds.

You are going to the game. You already spent a dime.

You know what I mean. I didn't spend a dime that goes to the NHL. The money I spent went straight to the seller on stubhub. Didn't think I had to clarify but oh well.

Just bought tickets a few hours ago on stubhub. Section 327 I believe. They were only $25 and probably not the best seats in the house, but I wanted to be there for opening night. This will be my first opener of any sport. Can't wait!

On ticketmaster, judging by the colored dots representing unsold seats, it looks like there are less than 1000 left. Stubhub, as of right now, shows 957 tickets left. Judging by that, it should be close to capacity by Saturday.

I'd bet the farm it just means the Isles are withholding a bunch of tickets to potentially sell to season/partial ticket holders. You'll see a lot more seats open up the closer we get to game day.

Before I take this bet, how big is the farm?

I don't really know how the ticket thing works in all honesty. I live rather far away so I only get to a few games, and when I go, the building is never sold out, so I don't know what it is like with sellouts.

Well I live in Manhattan, so not very big.

Opening nights are usually sellouts but I'd be really surprised if they got one this year. Having a couple thousand Devil fans there should help though.

A walkup crowd for a Saturday is usually around 1K. Couple that with this being the opener versus a local team and this sells out easy as pie.

Man, I so want to drive down for the game. Opening nights are always electric. I'm still annoyed from the last time I went to the opening game in 2009... I was about to get to the urinal when Tavares scored his first ever goal.

Same here. It will be the first opener I have missed in 15 or so years.

Is this a NY Ranger Thread? Who cares if they sell out or not.

There is no prize for selling out.

From what I see though, it looks to be close to sold out and Monday may be as well.

And if it doesn't sell out, oh well. Its opening night, its gonna be a good crowd. This is my 2nd opener I am missing.

This. I'm not even so sure about the second game even on MLK day. But I think the first game sells out and then there is a huge drop off unless the Isles come back from their road trip with a record of 5-2 or better.

not too bad since the cheaperst ones on stub hib are now 40.00 (plus at least 10.00 in fees)

I called on Monday for the $25 speical and asked if they had better seats. paid $42 was told tickets will be in end zones 200's not last 5 rows. they couldnt give me exact seat since it was best available. I normally buy on stub hub. I am really good at reading the market on tickets and airline prices. i felt this was best deal i would find so far it is.

I broke down, used the money I had set aside for some work I was going to get done. Now the Lady and I are going to the game Sec 224.

Are there any Isles Board gathering this year. Love to have a beer and meet some of you.

Very likely and similar to last year when the first game sold out then the next game was half full. To make it even worse, I noticed there is a 7 game homestand this year in just 14 days at the end of February and beginning of March. I can see some of those game being a ghost town as that may be overkill for a lot of fans.
