With these recent hikes, a pair of balconies on stubhub next year will be close in price to a weekend in Tampa or Sunrise sitting lower bowl.

It seems that the farther South that you go the cheaper the NHL Tickets get!

You can get Panthers tickets for free when you trade in $10 of non winning scratch tickets:

I wonder if they fill out the backs and send them in for a chance at the loser prize

Take a look at your play off price increase

I knew the $$ would go up but my reg season went up 24 % and playoffs 34%. That is too much.

Nothing the STH can do but give up your seats or sell more games.

If you don't mind me asking what's the new face value per ticket after the increases?

$130 per game per seat.

For this year's playoffs:

round #1 $160
round #2 $240
round #3 $320
round #4 $400

total for one seat for all 4 rounds $4480

I knew the ticket prices would go up...I just didn't expect such a large increase.

I'm sorry, but what does STH stand for in this case? Tried googling it, looked at urban dictionary, which produced a few... interesting suggestions.

Is the $130 the new price for next regular season or what you're paying for this regular season?

So I guess you aren't hoping for a lot of Game 7's.

I think I paid about $130 to for a lower bowl box seat when I went to Game 6 in 2008. This is the downside of being successful / popular. It's the real fans who stuck with the team through thick and thin who are punished the most.

The scary thing is that even with these huge increases it's still way cheaper than here in Toronto:

Regular Season

LOWER LEVEL SEATING
CA $213.75 - CA $553.75

UPPER LEVEL SEATING
CA $103.75 - CA $133.75

I absolutely agree. I understand an increase but a 24% and 34% in one season is robbery. Man, inflation rate is 1.8%!!! How about a ticket increase of a reasonable 5%10% at most.

Inappropriate analogy. LA has 2 teams and NYC has 3 teams. By that math Toronto should have 4-5 teams. But they have 1. The Leafs aren't a reasonable comparison.


Montreal, Chicago, or Van/Alberta teams are probably the best comparisons to us.

I'll be in Phoenix in 2 weeks for vacation, which means I can catch the B's/Yotes game for about 100 bucks seated about 10 rows from ice level.

The cheapest ticket for saturday's game against Washington on stubhub right now is $134.

What % is that above face value, it's a single ticket in row 2 section 321. Cheapest pairs are also 134 each, for row 15 in 322

I believe when you're looking, you'll find your answer

Well I live in Toronto so they're a reasonable comparison for me.

Montreal Regular Season

$71 - $433

https://wroom.centrebell.ca/eventSho...3-4754dada5b24

And honestly I don't think that Montreal & Chicago are good comparisons to Boston because those are two of the biggest arenas in the NHL.

Boston has one of the smallest (3rd smallest IIRC) in the NHL. I'm not sure why they built such a small arena (by NHL standards) but if it's Supply & Demand they certainly have a smaller supply than most teams.

Well with the 17 to 44% increase on next years Bruins tickets he needs money for something.I would definitely not rule it out, he is from Buffalo.

No worries, once fans realize how insane it is to pay these ticket prices and refuse to buy tickets, Jacobs will call for an expansion to print some money via expansion fees, and the talent will be even more diluted. Then he will call another lockout and steal from the players once again.

Might as well complain about capitalism in America at this rate. That's really the issue.

If ticket prices are too high, people should band together and stop paying. It would look embarrassing, but in a league that takes in about 4 billion dollars a year in revenue and sells millions of tickets, there isn't sympathy for the little guy. That's just the way it goes. I've accepted it, for better or worse.

Yea unfortunately, more than ever there are two Americas. There are millions of people that lost a job and can't find a new one or give up hope and can't pay the bills. Even worse, millions of people who lost money due to the greed and corruption of the financial sector...(which of course received billions in bailouts of taxpayer money)

Then there are many young people that aren't even afforded the chance to even have the dignity of working to feel like they are participating in the society.

Everything about the rise in ticket prices flies in the face of the reality for the vast majority of people. 24% is not connected to any increase in costs, it's robbery.

Our priorities as a society have become so mixed up.

No, the MBTA is not a part of the renovation. It's a joint deal between Boston Properties and Delaware North, the parent company of the Garden.

Mr. Jacobs did fund the expansion and renovation of the commuter rail station on his own however. Per the blog http://charlieonthembta.blogspot.com...t-project.html

Quote:
Delaware North paid for the $5 million expansion project, which included the construction of larger restrooms and the installation of an overhead electronic message board with scheduling information.
They just signed a lease with Star Market to be their largest retailer so that will also help with the cost.

Parking

Lets not also overlook the ridiculous parking increase that Jacobs installed as soon as he took over the parking garage lease.

Right, we should totally be able to park inside the garden for cheap. I don't want to have to walk outside, doesn't JJ know it's cold outside?

And don't get me started on the fact that he doesn't give out free beer. Disgusting.
