Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks announced today that a limited number of single game tickets, approximately 1,000, for all home games in Round 1 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, will go on sale via phone and internet only on Wednesday, April 7th at 10:00 am. Fans can purchase tickets online at www.ticketmaster.ca, or by calling Ticketmaster at (604) 280-4400 or 1 (800) 663-9311. The General Motors Place Box Office and Ticketmaster Ticket Centres will not be used to avoid disappointing fans who traditionally line up for hours without successfully purchasing tickets. Tickets will be distributed once playoff games are confirmed to be played.

Ticket prices for Round 1 begin at $115. To accommodate as many fans as possible, each household will be eligible to purchase a maximum of four tickets per game.

Fans unable to secure tickets on the on-sale date are encouraged to sign up for the Last Minute Tickets Club to receive email notices when tickets are released for purchase or check Ticketmaster regularly within 48 hours of game day up until puck-drop for ticket releases. Tickets for confirmed games may also be obtained as early as Saturday, April 10th through the Canucks Prime Seat Club. The Canucks Prime Seat Club is a secure site where Season Ticket Holders can sell their seats for games they cannot or choose not to attend.

All Canucks Ticket Holders, including Blue Line wait list members, are provided the opportunity to purchase their playoff tickets in advance of the public on-sale as part of their benefits package.

Vancouver’s postseason schedule and opponent for the Western Conference Quarter-Final has yet to be determined. An announcement is expected after the regular season concludes on Sunday, April 11th.

Fans are encouraged to log on to www.canucks.com for complete Canucks playoff coverage including daily photos, video, stories and schedules.

Considering they sell out every game and have a mile long waiting list, Canuck tickets are priced too low.

Which ones will u guys be getting? Game 1? Game 2? Game 5?

Game 5 might be sweet, but if they sweep, then that would kind of suck.

The Canucks could double their season ticket prices and sell season tickets for every single seat in the arena. However, it's bad for business if non-season ticket holders have no chance to ever see a game live. You gotta give fans a chance to get into the building or else you may hurt growing your fan base. For that reason, the nosebleed tickets are too expensive.

About that, it was like 112 IIRC. Went up to 120 for round 2, I can check my actual tickets if you want to know for a fact.

I agree that not selling the entire area out to season ticket holders is a good idea. I'm not really sure what you are getting at, are you saying tickets sold to non-season ticket holders should be cheaper than those sold to season ticket holders? That makes no sense as you would be giving your biggest customers a big slap in the face. Or are you saying that all upper deck seats are too expensive? Perhaps there is something to that, but again the Canucks have no motivation to do that. There are thousands wanting tickets who can't get them and it isn't like fan interest is waning.

I love my Canucks but the execs are downright thieves. I know the game has become a business but having the STARTING PRICE of playoff tickets at $115 is disgusting. This game is for the fans. How about allowing some of them to go the games? GM Place is just filled with rich snobs, business people, and girls who looking at their makeup for longer than they're looking at the ice. It's pitiful.

I make a decent living but unfortunately not decent enough to afford playoff tickets...again. That said, I'm probably still going to cave and buy some.

While prices are ridiculous you have to wonder how much surcharge ticket master is charging as well.

For season ticket holders the prices aren't nearly as bad as ticket master prices.

For those complaining about ticket prices; do you want to Canucks to spend to the cap and have one of the largest scouting/development departments in the league?

If you want a cup in Vancity someone has to pay for it and its not going to be Aquaman.

No. The Canucks haven't always been big spenders and yes in the past when they tried (on salary) it was horrible (ex: the six million dollar man). But recently they spent a lot of money on scouting and development in addition to spending to the cap and imo it is paying off. Getting good young talent is the only way we will ever get a cup in Vancouver but that costs money.
