The Blues are instituting a similar policy:

Quote:
The Blues are one of the NHL teams this season, including Nashville, which are requiring fans to buy tickets to multiple games in order to acquire them for meetings against Chicago.

In recent years, the Blackhawks have attracted huge crowds to Scottrade Center, at times taking over the in-game atmosphere, and that could continue after the ‘Hawks won their second Stanley Cup in four years in 2012-13.

But this season, tickets to those four aforementioned games are available only as part of full- and half-season tickets, or 12-game and hat-trick plans. Games are divided into three price categories: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

And it didn't work. Some bought tickets before the ban; others via Stub Hub.

Yep. Those at the game are saying there may actually be more Chicago jerseys there than normal.

I should know the answer to this being a leafs fan but what were the attendance reprecussions to ottawa doing it? Did they still sell out and if so were there fewer visiting fans?

Buying two tickets for the Preds is still less than one in Chicago

It worked perfectly, they got exactly what they wanted. They got their name in the paper in August. They obviously weren't really gonna try to keep Hawks fans out, as they have no control over the secondary market.

Actually received an email from the Preds that the Hawks fans donated over 1,000 tickets to the military. Nice contribution by the Hawks fans.
