These ticket prices are outrageous. Who is filling the rink and where do you work to afford these tickets?

Seriously has anyone looked at this? Single game tickets start at $175 all the way to $395....Standing room only (who the fuck does that) starts at $99 up to $165......that's inconceivable. :viking: Then they have the audacity to offer a high roller package for $777 a game (at least that includes beer and 2 tix on the glass)!

Look I have a big tv with surround sound, the hockey package, all inclusive beer and food, a budweiser red light, free parking and no pisser line.

I forget where, but I whined about this a month ago. I looked into going to Vegas to see the Isles play. Couldn't come anywhere near paying those prices. I like their team but I agree, my couch is comfy, my TV is big enough, and I won't go broke watching them from here. They can find rich, drunk tourists to pay those prices.

I also pissed and moaned about this in another thread. After looking at going to see a game for the 5th time this season and seeing this violation it needs its own legs.

I can't afford this so I am out.

They're an expansion team that also happens to lead their division: it's an unprecedented situation! Understandable that ticket prices will be out of whack for a bit.

Things will change at some, one would think. Might take a season or two.
