What do you think the Habs will do to 'win back' some fans? (UPD: post #31)

Bell security have been really cool about this they even brought us out some blankets (with a habs logo on it!) and we're allowed to stay close by the building which keeps us warmer.

Will keep you guys posted as to the line situation but so far, so good!

Same here.... I knew a few nutcases would show up at a ridiculous time of the day, but if they're ALREADY there... then I guess I'll skip this time.

EDIT especially that they don't let you in the Bell Centre with basically anything, so you can't bring anything to sit on. I'd go around noon and bring my ipad, but then they force you to leave your backpack at the coat check... don't really want to risk it.

What they should do? Be more intelligent and present that game on TV. We still, as fans, have way less than most teams do. Leafs have a camera planted in their practice facility so you can see them on the web. We don't. We have to watch practices behind a glass 'cause we might be too noisy while other teams don't have that. And now, they know it will be full, yet they don't show this game on TV.

its only 1 free hot dog . I really wanted to watch the scrimmage, but if there's a line up building already, I don't think I'd be getting in.

They really should televise this on RDS/RDS2. I think they're showing Hockey360 during the scrimmage instead.

Well, keep us updated if you can coolasprICE.

25% off the site at NHL.com.

Stuff is overpriced to begin with, so I'm not sure there are any deals to be had anyways.

I was wondering the same thing. Do you think it would be possible for me to get in if I were to get there around 2?

Can't believe all Molson is doing is a free hot dog and scrimmage and discounted overpriced merchandise.

Here in Denver, I just bought four tickets in the lower level for $35 each for opening night against the Kings. Those are the best seats at the Pepsi Center. Upper level was available for $15!

Can you imagine having a chance to watch Gally's first NHL game for that price?

just got back from the Habs Zone store

pretty nutty.

Authentic are half off at 150$. Decent price if you ever wanted the real ones.

some people are overloading. Seen guys with 10+ jerseys. Can someone say Ebay?

basically when the puck drops it will be full price tickets and premium pricing and full price concession and merchandise as usual.

i do not consider this an apology



''but i gave you free practice and free food"



''NO EXCUSES''
hilarious!!

Seriously, it's actually pretty BS how little they are doing! My opinion of Molson is that he really cared about getting the lockout resolved, understood how the fans felt and gives back big in general.

How does this benefit long-time Habs fans who've had to move away for school or work??
I recently got a new Price jersey (arrived in 1 day from the NHL shop...not bad), but not 50% off and I bought it while they were having that sale. Parents were out of town so couldn't do it for me and my friends...well, busy/lazy/would have to ship it anyway.

Going to the inter-team game, the morning skates, this doesn't help me at all. I, like MANNNNNY other die-hard Habs fans hailing from Montreal, or even not! (I've met so many people in the Toronto area who are from here, but Habs fans.) Don't we deserve something. It really would have been enough to extend the 50% sale to the online store. I guess it's cuz it interferes with the NHL's revenue (so tired of talking about that), but the Habs could have set up a situation to defray the cost. Pretty bs, as I said.

(I will not care at all once PK is signed and/or if they win big on Saturday.)

Looking forward to the opening ceremony, but again, PK - you should be there.

The NHL store online, seems to be selling Jerseys with Galchenyuk with #27... If he happens to change his number will they change the numbers for free?
