Playoff Invoices in the Mail

Just got an email that my playoff invoice is in the mail. Logged in to my account manager...assuming we were to go all the way, playing the max # of games, my two pairs would cost $10,000. Ouch! I'll try and get the per game/section pricing and post that too.

The economy is in the toilet, the team is middling along and Dolan has the nerve to not only send these out today, but to jack up the prices yet again. By my math, 300 level tix - $52 a game - go up to $85 for the first round, $92 for the second, $125 third and should the Rangers make the Cup, $184 per game. They ought to send some lube with the invoices.

Yeah, I just don't get it...actually Dolan doesn't seem to get it. Why is this the only team that thinks you HAVE to increase ticket prices every year? I have seasons for an NFL franchise that hasn't raised subscriber prices in 4 years.

Wow just logged into my account and saw those numbers. That is so awful, I look forward to someone posting the 400's numbers, as I want to see the difference from the blues to the 300's and then the difference from the 300's to the 200's.

Thankfully I have been doing well with Rangers ticket exchange as well as games sold on this site. Will defintely being sell playoff tickets this year, if they make it.

$34 Regular Season
$60 Round 1
$65 Round 2
$100 Round 3
$146 Don't want to jinx us

Clear to see that that's what the deadline deals were really about. Especially with the quick invoice move. Business first.

It's amazing the Finals aren't broken down by game. How much would a game 7 in the 400's be worth?

I'd somehow find a way to scrap together at least 500 and would probably sell blood to get to 1000 if I had to.

I would think you could go to every other playoff game and with the amount you could sell the tix for it shouldn't be that bad of a hit. Although i have heard the economy isn't going so hot.

That is true, you can make a few bucks selling the tickets. But isn't it sad that you have to sell one game to be able to afford going to the next?

You know who does make this kind of money? Gomez. I just did the math, he makes 89,000 dollars per game. He had 23 shifts last night. Breaks down to 3900 or so per shift. So the next time he takes 2 or three shifts off in a game, maybe you can get him to throw that salary your way, to go towards somebody who actually cares about the result of the game every night. I know, that's harsh, he had a good game last night. But when you break down salaries into what real money would mean to real people, it's staggering

LOL anyone else find it funny that the 1st and 2nd round prices are nearly identical? Shows management has a ton of faith in us getting past the 1st round. Might as well make as much money as possible.

It's not the pricing that bothers me, it's the differential between regular season ticket price and playoff price that gets me. In 06-07 we paid $26 per ticket for the 400s, and the first round was around $35 per. Here they're nearly doubling the price which is ridiculous.

Yea its crazy. I just talked to my ticket rep and he broke down each round for me.

regular season=57.00 per tix
1st rd=90.00 per tix
2nd rd=98.00 per tix
3rd rd=134.00 per tix
SCF=196.00 per tix

now last years playoff pricing was like this

1st rd=85.00 or 80.00 I forget exaclty
2nd rd=95.00
3rd rd=130.00
SCF =205.00

So they basically lowered the pricing for the SCF but killed us on the first rd.

Yea I talked to one of my friends in the section today and he said we should go to the games together, sit in his seats and sell mine and then split the profit.

Same price increase as last year for the first round. Reg. Season were 30 apiece, they went up to 55. 2nd round I dont know if I remember. Was it 75 a ticket? I think it was. And 3rd round would've been 95? or maybe 105? So it's kinda around the same in some areas and different in others.

It doesn't tick me off too much that they raise prices for the playoffs, although the rate they raise it is ridiculous. What really ticks me off is that pre-season is priced normally, and YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM if your a STH.

They acknowledge that the playoffs are better so they charge you more, but what about the pre-season??

Good point, but the nice thing about the preseason is you usually get to see alot of the kids and a few prospects which is cool

Sigh...guess I better start saving up a bit. The prices are through the roof..nice of them to go easy on the fans during the the worst financial period in years...

And i assume they will raise again next season? Maybe they should go Phillys route and treat STHs like they should....they already announced they wont be raising prices.

I've been complaining about that for years. If you're going to charge us MORE for playoff games it only seems right that we should pay LESS for meaningless pre-season games. But they know there's nothing we can do about it.

I expect a 1 dollar or 1.50 increase per 400's ticket next year. I think the 4 dollar increase for this year was a good cover for raising it only slightly for next year to make it seem like they are going easy on the fans.

One thing I noticed was this:

Quote:
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR DECISION WHETHER OR NOT TO PURCHASE 2009 PLAYOFF TICKETS DOES NOT IMPACT YOUR ABILITY TO RENEW YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE 2009-2010 SEASON.
I don't think this is something that's been done before. So for everyone who has an issue with the playoff ticket prices, you have an out without penalty.
