Wonder how much more they could raise prices and still have people attend games?

Abuse the Canadian even more.

Shame that they have to increase ticket prices to recoup losses from the lockout. You'd think these guys would find other ways to recoup those losses without raising ticket prices and drawing ire from the fans.

Ire? What ire? Sports fans obviously don't care at all about how they're treated, on aggregate at least. I'm happy to watch on tv from here on out.

Again, prices were set BEFORE the lock-out. Considering attendance and demand seems the price is just right. Demand for Rangers tickets is the highest since 94. Devils have sold out every game this year.

The gate receipts for the two leagues have been fairly close for some time. The big difference is the NBA's national and international TV and merchandising money, which adds, very roughly, just under a billion dollars more to the NBA coffers as compared to the NHL.
