Basically it's personalized tickets: you have to submit a list of people that can go to the game if you can't attend. If you "scalp" your ticket to someone, that person won't be able to attend the game.
That's an AWESOME idea.

playoff ticket changes

Hey All,

Well, today, like many of you, i got up with my mind set on getting my hands on at least a pair of playoff tix. Set my pc up, kept my home and mobile right beside me, and set up shop at about 11am. I patiently waited for the clock to strike 12, and when it did i clicked on the magic buy tickets button for game 1 and 2.

After about 5 mins of waiting one window openned up..the one for game 2...i got two imo pretty dec seats available to me, and i proceeded with the purchase process. all my info was enterred in, filled out my credit card info and clicked on the magic confirmation button.

this lead to a blank screen being displayed and after 4 mins of that i got a lovely pop up explaining to me that my session has timed out. after swearing at my pc in serveral languages (matherchod di olaat di putre d'un crisse de tabernak of a ****ing ****) i openned another window trying frnatically to get back...unfortunately it was too little too late as per by that time i couldnt get nething for game 1&2, and by the time i got through to game 3 &4 only singles were left for me.


Now, in a hockey mad city like montreal I can't say that I'm too surprised about the traffic, and i can't say im too angry. I love being from a city where wearing a certain shirt will give me high fives no matter where im in in north america and beyond.

But then i went to criagslist at around 1pm and saw that it is flooded with people selling their tickets. not jus there, but on facebook marketplace and numerous other websites as well.

This has lead to me feeling that its time for a change. Like I get it...survival of the fittest and these people found a way to get tickets where I didnt, but at the same time something about people who really could give a damn about the match getting tickets and a gang of fans being left in the cold seems sort of ****ed up.

So, how many people out there think we should change the way we deal with tickets. in the playoff ticket thread someone posted about how they handle tickets for the euro cup...and i honestly feel that it should be done that way by us as well. Im sure there are flaws in that system, but I truly feel that it would be leaps and bounds better than what we have.

****ing Idiots.

I got the timeout message 3 fu**** times after completing all the forms.
I've been trying to get tickets for 4 hours now. This is worse than trying to catch a fish in the Dead Sea.

Wow, never thought my post about the Euro 2008 tickets would lead to a new thread. Like I mentioned over the other thread, I completely understand why people want to make money out of the Habs playoff rush but today has been very frustrating for me trying to call Admission and also trying to get on their website in order to get some playoff tickets. But more frustrating was finding a lot of tickets for sales on Craigslist and Kijiji in the past couple of hours for ridiculous prices in my honest opinion. The Euro 2008 personalized tickets was implemented because they didn't want scalpers and also because fans had to go through a selection process (application) in order to get some tickets. Overall, scalpers will always do what they do whenever there's a market for it. I guess for the people who didn't get 1st round playoffs tickets, they could still watch the Habs playoffs games @ home between friends sipping a cold one...

Same thing happened to me... I had tickets listed, entered CC number and everything then the page started loading... and kept loading... and kept loading.. but never loaded.


I was also at the bracelet thing.. #826 so when they picked #61 I just came home to try my luck here. Yeah, didn't work too well.

for sure I understand that thats what the system is, but what I was trying to get at wasd that imo I think the system needs to be changed and the sooner the better. Its one thing for the regular season, i mean maybe you wont get tickets to a saturday match but you can find em for thursdays/tuesdays etc. You have an alternative.

for the playoffs, its really nothing or everything, which is why I really think they should change the format to what they do in europe...it would work out better for everyone except the scalpers

I just wanted to let people who had problems with their admission orders (i.e. blank page after entering their credit card info) that the same thing happened to me earlier but when I checked my account on admission I realize that my order went through.... So if you had this problem, chaeck your account info on admission.... maybe you where as lucky as I was!

The blank page didn't automatically mean that your order didn't work... I happened to me but when I checked my admission account, I realised the order went through. Howerver I agree that the system as it is doesn't work well. I had a couple windows opened waiting and it's not even the first one i opened that came through first... That says a lot about having a "waiting line" to enter the website...

I'm just pissed because I went downtown to the Bell Centre, failed there, went home, failed again.

I tried everything, and nothing worked. I really wanted tickets, but I was left empty handed and I just don't have enough money for what scalpers are charging.

FYI, I finally got in touch with Admission by phone tonight, and there are officially NO tickets left. AT ALL. No singles either! CRAZY!

So i got prepared at 11 and was waiting in the admission.com line

12 came and i was going nuts, had about 5 admission browers open. 12:45 hits and I get through, selecting 4 family zone tix for game 2. I'm about to pay and it timed out. I thought after that my luck would run out. 15 minutes later i got thru again, selecting the exact same, 4 FAZO tix and luckily they still had. Once again the damn thing timed out. i almost chucked my laptop at the floor. so then i decided to use the home pc, and quite quickly i got through and tried to select the same. 4 FAZO tix. well, it must have just been my day. they still had 4. This was at about 1:20 pm. I then managed to go thru all the **** before the 5 minute timeout thing kicked in.

so i got 4 Family zone tix to game 2, costing only 140 for them all. row a as well, so its basically 1st row blues. Thank god. im going to game 1 as well with my dad cos he has season tix in red 109.

anybody else have a success story from today?

I'm glad I had my tickets before today. A friend of mine knows someone from ''The Organization'' like Réjean Tremblay calls them and he got us 5 tickets for game one.

Yeehaw! GO HABS GO!

I believe that's 11 rows from the ice. You will sit in the corner so your view of the opposing end will be from a distant angle, but you are most likely high enough to have a good view of the play everywhere.
