Club Desjardins is actually a decent deal if you like fast food.

Different strategy this year. Devils game sold out, so I just bought 4 whites to Panthers game 10/24.

Hope to sell those 4 on Stubhub and make enough to buy 2 scalped Devils tickets for February. We'll see if it works.

I've heard of people stuffing their clothes with food to take as much with them home as imaginable and get as much for their money as they can.

True, and you get to check your coat, and it's not as crowded around the washrooms at that level either....not to mention, you can eat your face off for a couple of hours...and then you need the pepto!

Odd, more tix sold for November Pens game than Feb Pens game, though Crosby more likely to be back later in season and Feb game likely to be more important closer to season's end.

Yet the Islanders in March sold out. Is the week of March 17th March Break?

Well...the seats are actually pretty good, you get a free coat check, and like someone else pointed out, the concourse is less crowded.

Maybe the Islanders fans are trying to reverse our dominance at the Nasseau?

I noticed that, too and am also surprised. For game vibe at Bell Center this season, that one is gonna be up there.

Prices are going to be higher now. If you wait, they will go down a bunch.

Looks like another round of cross outs happened. Don't want to travel during the holidays but was beginning to consider Jets in Whites on my Birthday and then the Whites were crossed out before my eyes.

You have to check Stubhub daily and be ready to commit. Yes, daily. Especially as your desired game date draws closer. Prices will either drop or someone will suddenly not be able to attend a certain game and you'll see them on Stubhub at just a tad above face value as people attempt to get something for the tix.

It's just harder to do that the further away you are. (Like me in Nova Scotia.)

See my post above. I'd keep a regular eye on that.

Also, I begin to wonder if the extra scalper cash could be spent on airfare to go to another city to see the Habs in a good seat in a non hockey hotbed

One of us! A fellow Maritimer!

I feel your pain, then. Like me, you have to pre-plan and can't buy a ticket 5 days before the game.

Yeah, if you're gonna make a trip that far up and costly, you want the excitement of a Habs vs Leafs or vs an original six and those all look about gone.

All I got were 3 double pairs in Optimum Games.. 75$ per ticketdamn it.

Wonder why those (Caps, Pens, Bolts) are less in demands than other crappy teams (islanders, sens???).

I was thinking Islanders March 17th must be March break week and it's a cheap ticket + people thinking that would be a game less targeted, thus more likely to get better tickets.
