FROM 2007 AND NOTICE SAKU'S COMMENTS,who was RIGHT??? Gainey or Saku??

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/indepth/hockey-bob-gainey.html

Seeing as the team finished 1st in the Eastern Conference, I would say that Gainey was right in that they were a Cup Contender.

Note Cup Contender and Cup Winner are two different things.

Ya right .
Too bad there isn't a 104 home games in the NHL, because I'm sure they would all be sold out too.

There are 365 days in a year. 41 Home games. They have to do something with the other 324 days, with or without playoffs.

Evenko might sell more tickets overall at the Bell Centre but the average ticket price is well under the hockey ticket average. Also the average concert/show crowd is much closer to 10k than 21k. Factor in less concessions sold (most likely) and no merch sold and I doubt you can say that Evenko > Habs. Add in the playoffs and the Habs get 2M in profit per game!

Hockey is also closer to 50 dates if you want to include the pre-season and the open practices, like the one that started this thread. Add in the 2 Bulldogs games as well.

But there are 365 days in a year, so the fact that there are 100 something concerts and 50 so hockey games, means that there isn't much need for a 2nd building, now is there?

And how do you get more playoff games? Is it by selling future assets and making an unrealistic run this year?

I don't know what you are arguing anymore, and I'm not even sure you know what you are arguing for.

Yes, and I've been to the National concert last december at the BC, the average price was 50$ and the attendance was 4,500 people. What's your point?

EDIT: also selling out a concert doesn't mean 20k+ tickets were sold.

I think I'll stop.

If you don't understand what AVG of 104 concerts means...

Ie

5000
5000
10000
20000
equals 40,000
divided by 4.....
doesn't equal avg of 4500

So until you can figure that out, then try me again .

Respectfully.


Then do the same thing with ticket price,,,ie a 150 dollar avg for Roger WaterS....and a 50 dollar avg for No Name FRED....

add them all up and
divide it 104 TIMES...

104 evenko concerts

50 hockey dates

365 days in a year.

Seems to me there is plenty of room to fit in Playoff hockey without reducing the concerts and you can make even more money.

I don't know where winning became secondary.

There is a huge difference between management making a team that doesn't produce wins (ie this season) and taking that and saying management doesn't care to put out a team that is a winner. There are 30 teams in the NHL... 16 make the playoffs... its not like we choose not to make the playoffs.

Especially when we are spending right to the Salary Cap, there is little reason to believe that Molson isn't trying to win.

Yes, and if I went and created a poll here, over 90% would vote language shouldn't matter. In fact, even Guy Lafleur said as much. So... what's your point?

The economics of the concert business are much different than what they can appear to be on the surface.

Just because a concert might sell out, does not necessarily mean that the promoter or arena made a ton of money-or any at all for that matter. In general a sold out concert makes money for a promoter, but the amount can be a lot lower than what raw numbers (price per ticket times attendance + merchandise + concessions) might seem to indicate what it would be. Rock stars (and all concert entertainers who can sell out large venues like The Bell Centre) charge HUGE amounts for their appearances. They are not charitable ventures

Simply put, a sold out major act at The Bell Centre may command $150 per ticket, but the bottom line is a pittance relative to that of a Candien's game-especially a playoff game.
