I've been "waiting" online for about 5 minutes ... I'm sick of the swirling dots.

Exactly... I'm pretty sure my girl would rather the 2 side-by-side seats in my living room, then sitting a few sections apart at the Garden...

On to Plan B.... the probably Plan C, D, E, F... etc.

to everyone freaking out today, please dont panic. today was just a limited release, much like yesterday was. because it says a game is sold out today does not mean its sold out tomorrow.

besides, prices will be reasonable on stubhub/razorgator/etc. for now

mcb, i really hope that the market has reached a threshold in regards to price. balcony prices are already at 35~100 bucks each before fees. if people can profit off that on a regular basis, the economy is doing much better than we are told to believe!

keep in mind, some STH's have tickets for roughly 50% of the current face value, and plenty of those people are going to be selling on stubhub. thats where the deals will be found this season, NOT on ticketmaster.

Just refresh it... There's obviously something wrong. Not one of my ticket look-ups took more then 20 seconds to load...

True it was limited but I still dont think youll have many available for most of the "Gold Level" games. I could be wrong but you better be planted n front of the comp when the sale starts if you want a ticket to a premium game without havng to pay the premium prices.

agreed. I'm sure you are gonna get a pair of side-by-side tickets. It can't be this crazy.

Oh I know that Im one of the STH I've been selling the games I cant use for $60 a pair which is cheaper then the cheapest box office price and still double what I paid for the pair.

Also don't forget this is a presale.

It's not like they could allow all tickets to be sold before they even go on sale to the general public.

WOW, that's a great price. I will be dumping a bunch of row 2 balcony seats for box office prices plus T/M charge, which means they will be about 60-65 a game per seat.

last year my gf got tickets to the sharks game. she called me and said i got great seats. lodge seating and 43 bucks a seat. i kept telling her she must have been mistaken. sure enough we sat lodge against the sharks for 43 bucks a piece.... i really do like that site. it gets tickets from ace, stub or anyone else,but at least you know you will be getting them...

Thanks for the heads up. I got 4 tickets (last row, but that's great for guys' night out) to the 10/31 EDM game for $129.

Again gotta give props to the Bruins. As much of a pain as it was yesterday, they followed up with me 3 times, including earlier today when they called and gave me a pair of tickets to the 11/5 Montreal game. Also offered me a pair to the other game I asked for, but I ended up passing on them because the person I was going to give them too is going to get tickets tomorrow.

So I emailed just letting them know what was wrong, they called and I said I knew it was not their fault but ticketmaster, and they called me back and gave me the exact seats to the exact game I wanted. Not to shabby.

for all the horror stories we hear about the bruins organization when it comes to ticket sales, definitely refreshing to hear them do the right thing by you. for once it seems like they understand the importance of assisting their STH
