That's always been the case. I've had 1/2 plan for a few years now and I get full playoff rights.

I don't want 5 games at these prices. The fact that NOBODY is interested in my seats in Sect 216 tells me all I need to know. There is no chance there will be waiting list this season. I hope the Rangers don't sell out a single game!

The difference would be that you could keep your same seat that you had as full seasons and keep the seat to downgrade to a 1/2 season plan.

For the prices of the increases alone since the lockout you could put together a pretty nice hidef system.
Yup, and that's just another scam. Basically by "splitting" one pair of seasons into 2 (or 4 or whatever) they can justify jacking up the prices further. They make it sound like they are doing you a favor and providing added convenience. But really they know that many people have a limit to how much they can spend. So in the end you are still a STH but go to less games...and they make more money.

They do charge 1/2 season plan holders more. As I stated earlier I had a 1/2 season plan in 343 for this past year. I believe a full season ticket in that location was 52 per seat. My cost was 58 per seat. Am I complaining about paying more than a full season subscriber? No. But as broadwayblue mentions, they really aren't doing you much of a favor.

I just heard that the waitlist is over 5,000 people. Is that accurate? If it is, no wonder they raised ticket prices again. They know the demand is still there.

If you include everyone who put themselves on the waiting list since they created it, sure. All I know is ANYONE can have my seats in 216 for cost and NOBODY seems to want them...

I know when they signed Drury and Gomez that year. I tried to get 2 more seats and they told me that there was a new 4 seat limit per person, so they couldnt do it. They also told me that the waiting list was around 7500 people. So 5000 might be accurate right about now but if all 5000 people were offered season tickets today, whow man would actually want them now?

Fellow 349er!!

Just to let you know, (I know you had a 11-game pack), you wont get the same seats offered to you because their giving the option for the 22-gamers to upgrade to a full. I also asked about when partials are being offered, my rep said not until after the NHL releases the schedule.

They are giving EVERYONE the option to upgrade to full because at these prices, in the middle of a depression, they won't sell out...

everyone gets an option to upgrade based on seniority. STH get a time to call in. This is my 4th season coming up ($40/46/52/56), I have friends with 10 years seniority who were able to upgrade last year, by the time my number came up, the only thing available is the 200s in the corner which are mispriced/overpriced and consistently available.

As for availability, I suspect that like the Yankees and Giants (see Peter King Note below), the more expensive tickets will have increasing availability, while cheap seats will have less.

It will be considered an upgrade to move up from more expensive seats to less expensive. I suspect when my turn to call in for upgrades comes, there will be nothing available more towards the middle of 300s where I would like to move (my seats are basicaly on the goal line now) but plenty of 100 and 200 corners and behind the goal for roughly 50% higher prices.

I gave up my Yankee seats last year. And from personal experience and talking to other fans I can tell you the Yankees are far worse than the Rangers in terms of customer service. You may not like the price hikes, but as a season ticket holder, you get a representative who always responds and other events and opportunities.



from Peter King (SI's NFL guy)

The Giants have gone through their entire 140,000-person waiting list and still haven't sold about 4,000 of the premium seats in their new stadium. There's time, obviously, with 15 months before opening day at the new Giants Stadium. But it's worrisome that the team with an eternally tough ticket has almost 4,000 of its choicest seats available. Puts quite some pressure on the 2009 Giants to be
contenders, to build up the demand for the new stadium.

Has anyone took a look at the STH "Prize Packs" thread over on the Devils board. Talk about a punch in the stomach.

Well they cant do that because the 11-gamers shared a seat with the 22-gamers. And since I was offered my seats in a full season, that means the two 11 game holders couldn't have been. Unless of course they were offered different locations.

If you actually look at the perks and benefits most teams offer their season ticket holders in comparison to what the Rangers offer, you'll see how little Rangers fans get for their money (and that's not even taking the quality of the on-ice product into account). And when you add all the drivel the organization spews about how close the team is to its fans and how important the fans are, and then look at how accessible other teams' players and management are to their fans, it's hard not to feel like a total sucker for paying thousands of dollars a year to watch them play.

God that hurts.

Apparently the Devils can just give away $500 dollar food credits to any STH that wants it.

Suckers? No. Try more like MSG does not have to go out of its way to sell tickets. They sell themselves. There is no need as of right now to do all the stuff some other teams that may have trouble selling seats.

Also, it is a fact that the Rangers send out nicer gifts than the Isles and Debbies.

Put it this way.

If you could sell all 18000 of your tickets while investing only let's say $100,000 while the other team needs to spend $1,000,000 to sell just as many, why would the team spending $100,000 want to spend 10 times more just to be like the other guy when there would be no benefit to him?

To make it even better, if the same person could sell all 18000 tickets at an average of $60 a piece. He also knows that if he raises the price by 10% to $66 a piece, he will still sell all 18000 tickets. What benefit is it to him to reduce or keep the price the same?

If all 18000 tickets did not sell, then you could either increase what you're giving away to the people (incentives) or reduce the price. However, MSG is selling all of their tickets and therefore has no reason to change the way they are doing things.

The product on the ice has nothing to do with ticket prices and never will. It's about how high they can raise the price before people stop buying... and they haven't stopped yet.
