Correct me if I am wrong, but if the CBJ is a 7 - 8 seed, they will not get a 4th home game in rounds 1,2 or 3.
They definitely wouldn't get 4th home game if they are 8th seed in rounds 1-3...only remote possibility of being home team in 3rd round as a 7th seed if the 8th seed also were to advance. However, I'm sure they don't have time to run numbers every playoff year to guess which series they will have home advantage. So they establish a "cover-all" policy. For us full-season STHs, we had to pay for 16 games (four games per round). From their standpoint, it makes it easier to have it worked out going into playoffs than figuring out by each game whether there will be another home game or not and who gets those tickets.

Anyway, what it boils down to, is that they are dividing people into two groups. Group A is guaranteed the first home playoff game, Group B is guaranteed the 2nd home playoff game. If there is a 3rd home game in round 1, Group A gets those seats. Then in Round 2, they switch. Group B gets first home game, Group A gets 2nd home game, Group B gets 3rd home game if applicable, etc.

What I'm getting at is I got billed $2155 for 2 tix to 6 games. I need to find out what they are charging me per game.

I think it says somewhere that the amount given is not correct. You should have gotten an email around the 2nd that gives you your ticket price.

Those must be nice seats. I bought all 16 game strips in section 203 for $1,340 per seat and was hoping once they either load them on my account or send me printed tickets that I can also see the pricing per round too. I need to know what to charge my partners.

You can at least check the ticketmaster website for pricing in first round. It looks like they are selling first round seats in the 202/203/204/205 area for $55/each + Ticketmaster fees. I know the cost per ticket goes up each round. Seems to me that Stanley Cup Finals were in the neighborhood of $125-150 for Upper Bowl. In 2009, you could at least get the price per ticket per round off the hard tickets. May have to look and see if I kept those as souvenirs.

I know there was a full playoff ticket price matrix somewhere, but can't find it in an email. Huh. Anyways, this is from a link they sent a week ago, hope it provides some definition for anyone who needs it

PAY AS WE PLAY Examples
Example 1
A Full Season Ticket Holder has two (2) Seats in the AEP Power Level Center seating area. Each seat has a price of $50 per game for Round 1 and $55 per game for Round 2.
Prior to the start of Round 1 the credit card or debit card provided by the Full Season Ticket Holder is charged for $200 (2 seats x 2 games x $50).
The Blue Jackets win 2 of the first 4 games in Round 1 (Games 2 and 4). After winning Game 4 it is confirmed that a Game Six at Nationwide Arena will be necessary.
At this time, the Full Season Ticket Holder’s credit or debit card is then charged $100 (2 seats x $50) for the additional home game.
The Blue Jackets go on to win the first round series and advance to Round 2. At this time, the Full Season Ticket Holder’s credit or debit card will be charged $220 (2 seats x 2 games x $55) for the first two home games of Round 2.
Example 2
A Quarter Season Plan Holder has four (4) seats in the Lower End Shoot Once. Each seat has a price of $75 per game for Round 1 and $80 per game for Round 2. Quarter Season Plan Holders are guaranteed one (1) game in each round.

Prior to the start of Round 1 the credit card or debit card provided by the Quarter Season Ticket Holder is charged $300 (4 seats x $75).
The Blue Jackets win the first playoff series and advance to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Quarter Season Plan Holder’s credit or debit card is then changed for $320 (4 seats x $80) for one (1) home game in Round 2.

You should have received an email when the tickets first went on sale with the ticket breakdown. Here is the breakdown that I received.

I was close to working on playoff tickets but my son, who lives in New Albany, decided it would be better to plan Hockey Night in New Albany at his house on Saturday first.....

The chances of CBJ playoff games are very slim as of this posting.

If they make the playoffs, any word on when playoff tickets would go on sale to the general public?

STH presale ends today at noon, so I would think they will go on sale to the public soon after.

Parking question; does anyone park along the meters on Goodale Ave and/or Park St (north of the bars) next to Goodale Park? Maybe even as far north as Buttles?

I usually park in the Arena Grand garage off Marconi behind bd's, but looking for a cheaper or free option for tomorrow, and the future.

Yes, but, beware: Those meters are now enforced till 10pm, and they have a three hour limit, so you're really rolling the dice by using them. Especially if a) you like to get a beer before the game and b) the game goes to overtime. And they patrol the heck out of those meters.

(this information MAY be out of date. I stopped using them 2 seasons ago when I realized it could be dicey)

Complete shot in the dark here, but I'm looking for 2 tickets to the game tomorrow night. I may even be willing to accept one and just go by myself. Hit me up here or shoot me an email at: ernmorris@roadrunner.com.

Also, if you head west on Nationwide Blvd past Huntington Park and the rail overpasses, there's some limited free street parking as well as parking lots that are free (though they have the requisite signs about private lot and could be towed).

The presale's now listed on Ticketmaster as going through Monday, so I'd expect a public onsale on Tuesday.

I'll make 1 comment on the increased security last night.

I arrived at 5:45 pm. The line on west side of arena was backed up to and wrapped north on Front street. Assumed they opened gates at 6 pm. I entered the Arena at 6:35 pm.

If the Arena believes they enhanced security last night, they are fools. Any copycat with a pressure cooker inside a duffelbag or backpack could have killed dozens and injured 100's outside the arena last night as we waited in ridiculously long lines. A suicide bomber with explosives strapped to their chest could have detonated an explosion outside the arena as thousands waited to enter Nationwide.

It's utterly ridiculous to think security was increased last night in the wake of the Boston bombings. The notification to arrive to the Arena early only created a greater risk by causing a huge, exposed, and unprotected crowd to gather outside.

I arrived at @6:55, walked directly in, and would have been in my seat by Leo-time, had we not stopped for food. I think you're right, the "early arrival" notice appears to have been somewhat counter-productive.

I'm not sure if I'm pragmatic, paranoid, or insane for having exactly the same thought while standing out there.

they totally where



especially considering there really wasn't any extra security check in the entry way




I'm going to go out on a limb and assume the guy on stilts was a undercover, and was actually monitoring the crowd for suspicious activity from his vantage point

"A man was pelted to death outside of Nationwide Arena. He is believed to have been attempting an act of terror, but was stopped when an undercover officer known as 'Chuckles the Anti-Terror Clown' unleashed a torrent of bowling pins. As per department policy, Chuckles would not speak on camera, but recreated the scene using balloon animals."

I would like to air one grievance I had yesterday. I got off work around 1:30, booked it down to the arena to stand in the green seat line. Got there at 2, was most likely in the front 15% of the line by the time the tickets went on sale. Had some awesome conversations and met some really cool people. Now, the line went from the ticket office all the way to the corner nearest Huntington Park, maybe a little longer. Right as I got inside the ticket office, there were no more seats to be had. Only the first 70 people or so got tickets. Why? Because CBJ policy says every individual can buy 4 Green Seats. So, nearly every single person did, came out of the ticket office, and sold their extras to scalpers at a huge profit. This was simple a complete mismanagement of ticket distribution by the club. Knowing the kind of demand there would be, they easily could have made the limit two tickets per person. As a result, the dad I was standing next to in line had to take his kids home disappointed, not being able to buy tickets to what would have been the kids first CBJ game of the year.

Also, season ticket reps came around offering free suite tickets to the game to anyone who placed a deposit last night, but could not offer anything for people like me who placed a deposit two weeks ago. My rep did offer to give me one of the three individual seats he had left in the arena free of charge, but I couldn't accept because I needed two together. Just happy I have season tickets next year so I don't have to deal with that experience ever again.

Security in the crowd was there, constantly circling, mingling, watching, opening backpacks, etc. Saw it firsthand. Arena security and CPD had a guy sitting near starbucks on plaza open his backpack and told him to move along if he wasn't attending game. Now, I don't think they actually could have FORCED someone to "move along" since it was clearly an invited gathering of hangers-arounders, but I do think there was increased vigilance.

Stinks like all out that society has come to this. But, speaking as a spouse of a first responder, there is very little that can be done to prevent such tragic events like the Boston incident. Balancing freedoms and security is a delicate charge.

Too bad we can't rely on human decency. I'm just thrilled the night went off without incident.
