do you have to show student ID when buying tickets?
You need to show your student card when you buy them, but you don't need it when you actually go to the game.

Best tickets are the whites, front row in the middle (each sides of the nets it's not so good). But the blue and molson ex zones are fine, way better than the reds (especially those near the nets, where you can't see anything) .

I went to see 10 games last year for about 260$ in total, not so bad...

I already said what i think about ticket prices , they are not that bad imo and that's why it's always sold out.

To me the biggest probelm '' Hockey has really become way too expensive '' is the cost to send your kids to play hockey. I don't know iff anyone here have their kids playing hockey but it would not surprise me if it cost them 1k/year or more..

When will the "buying tickets" season start this year?

I think i'll buy some sort of package this year, 10 or so games would be good. As long as i can get a code for the pre-sell for the playoffs later on.

edit: as for the prices. Blue section is good enough for me. In fact, the very last row of the Bell center is pretty decent. Relatively cheap and you can actually stay up all game long anyways. So you really see the entire ice at full time...

Another thing is: 2nd balcony atmosphere >>>> 1st balcony atmosphere (which is still good in Mtl, mind you)

last row is my favourite place to sit in the playoffs. i can stand up when it's tense, and not worry about pissing people off.

I don't think hockey is too expensive.

Honestly if I were the Habs owner, I would raise each ticket by $2.

41 Home Games * 21,273 * 2 = 1 744 386 more dollar profit.

Hell, raise it up 4 bucks.There is money to spend on a superstar right there.

I would be greedy. People will still come to the games anyway.

They already spend the cap maximum so it would'nt change a thing.

I agree they could raise the prices as it's still pretty hard to get a ticket if you don't buy it long before.

I guess, but still, more money in the owners pocket isn't a bad thing, lol
