It's average prices... Means absolutly nothing. It's 30$ a piece in the Blue section which is relatively decent imo.

You know:

Team A 10 000 seats: 5000 red at 425$ and 5000 blue at 25$.
Average: 225$

Team B 10 000 seats: 5000 red at 225$ and 5000 blue at 175$.
Average: 200$

I sure wouldnt want to go to Team B arena...

Extreme example i know, but Lower tickets would have been a much more appropriate way to see where it's cheap. 330$ for a family?? Give me a break, i'm going to see 10 games for less than that price myself.

Going with your family is 100-120$. Not 330$

i'm not sure how they calculate average.....must be new math or something.

Here is the ticket chart for the Senators, absolutely no way is an average ticket what is quoted in that article. NO WAY. Unless you are in a reduced ticket zone, of which there are few, even the tickets at the top of teh bowl exceed the average.

Yeah, but guess what, $30 for the cheapest ticket is just about the most expensive "cheapest" seat anywhere.

We have high prices, face it.

Montreal has the highest because it has, in percentage, the highest number of lower bowl ticks (the reds), compared to other arenas. Plus, since all the ticks are sold at the highest price, instead of rebate price like in Ottawa, for example, the ticks are expensive.

The Habs are filthy rich. Don't ever believe what Boivin says. They make money like water drips from my faucet. Uncle George took a chance and won. Unless the team tanks, this franchise is the most valuable in the NHL. There are no other franchise that can boasts so many sold out games (at 21 000 +!!!), and so much merchandising sold every year.

My point was that aside from a few franchises in th south of america, most teams probably are fairly close one to each other... in the 25-30$ range.

Last year We were rank 3rd in the league in term of revenue. We pay 8M. This year we will make more money. Habs are ********** rich.

I don't know if the Habs have been profitable recently. Gillett has said he's lost about 10 million every year since he bought the team. Maybe he's lying, who knows...

If he has lost 10 mill he has saved 20 mill on taxes or something like that!

i dont belive that.Gillett payed how much for the Habs and
Molson Centre $185 million.?

all these concerts he keeps bringing to town is he losing money on those also ?

Basille just set a precedent buying one of the worst clubs (Penguins)in the Nhl for 175 million

whats the Habs worth now ?

Gillett hasnt lost dont let him fool you .



like a old time farmer . they always claim every year is a bad year .

one farmer i knew never left the farm much .after all those
" bad years" on the farm when he died and was worth 5 million .

how bad really was it ?

The team may have increased in value, but that doesn't make a direct impact to Gillett unless he sells it.

The fact is that he has said he has lost tens of millions of dollars with the team since he has bought it. Maybe he's a liar as you say, maybe not, I don't know...

The lockout year was NOT a money making year. Perhaps he has made money since the lockout, but I really doubt he made money before, or during.

The Leafs were able to make a handsome profit with a salary of about $70 million, no way the Canadiens can do that.
