i can't recall last season's exact price for 300 level non center ice seats.. but i think it was about 4100 for 2 full season.. this is insanity that i will now be paying about 4500 for 2 seats.. by time renovations are done they will lisence the seats bang us for a boat load of cash and tickets will be well over 5000 for 2 in the 300 level..

i love this team but there has gotten to be a breaking point, and i think alot of people will start breaking including myself in the coming years..

Any upstaters get their invoices?

I'm afraid one will show up in my mailbox tomorrow and I'll have to take out a small loan in order to finally get seats. Moneys tight right now.

I feel the same way. Been a Ranger fan since I was 6 and always dreamed about having season tickets. After the lockout, after 7 straight yrs of no playoffs, I gets seasons and this is my reward. I'm at the breaking point and would love to stick it to them. I don't buy that there is someone begging to take my seat. There is a limit and with the economy and Wall St the way it is, I think this season will be the breaking point. Once the diehards leave they will not return. Its becoming increasingly difficult to support an organization that sees its fans solely as dollar signs.

OK, true.. so maybe directly related was a poor choice of words. But there is a correlation. Either way, season ticket holders are getting the shaft, I can't imagine what it will be like on Ticketmaster and the secondhand market is going to suck too....

Yeah, the people who get screwed are the working folks who actually pay for their seasons out of their own pocket (not corporate seats) and like to go to a fair number of games each season. Now they will be forced to cut way back. It sucks to have to spend the same (or more) amount of money and yet see less of the Blueshirts at the Garden. But ownership doesn't really care about that.

I'm in 317, so that should be what my invoice will say as well for the cost..and all i can say is ouch

There is a simple reason why MSG keeps raising the prices of tickets. Because they can. The STH's are very easy to take advantage of. They will raise the tickets until they feel they can't get enough STH's at a said price. Inflation might have a little to do with it, but I doubt much. Its more greed than anything. It is definitely gonna get too expensive for some people with the cost of living in our area. But MSG is gonna keep raking in the dough.

Does the $7679 include the $25 shipping? If it does then it makes sense we will be seeing 2 preseason games ((7679-25)/86) = $89 a game.

These were $36.50 the first year out of the strike. Oh well. I know everyone is going to have a hard time with the price increase, but the Rangers are definitely a good value compared to other NHL arenas.

it also has to do with the dollar declining.....these organizations need more $$ and the declining dollar is another excuse to raise prices.

Has nothing to do with payroll, lawsuits, or buying out coaches. It is all about supply and demand. They know people will pay the money, so they are charging what they feel will maximize their revenues. I am not worried, I will sell plenty on the exchange at a premium.

I thought the whole point of the lockout and the new cba was to keep ticket prices low and actually decrease some, what a bunch of bull that was

I think what mti was trying to say is that the salary cap has been able to go up because the higher ticket prices are creating more revenue (the whole linkage thing). He wasn't saying that the increased salary cap is causing higher ticket prices.

I've been a partial season ticket holder for the past several seasons, but I'm definitely not renewing this year. The price increase, combined with the farcical "playoff priority" associated with these plans have turned what was once a very good deal into something that's simply not worth my time and money. I haven't missed a home opener in years, but that streak will probably be ending this year as well. I'm probably just going to put my ticket money towards Center Ice and a few seats at The Rock.

Just checked out my invoice online. I'm in section 418 and price is now 1462.00 per seat for the season. Not sure per game yet because I have no idea how many preseason games we are playing at the MSG, plus we lose 1 home game. So somewhere between 32 -36 $ a game. If anyone figures it out please let me know.

Thanks. Just figured it out. Oh well, looks like i will have to cut out 4 to 6 games this year. If MSG keeps raising prices, along with gas and food, etc., in a few years, I will just have to sell all my regular season tics, and go only to playoff games.

The Garden could care less about us, they know someone else with deeper pockets will foot the bill.
At what point does this become price gouging? Someone should contact the Attorney General & get an investigation started.
