I've been thinking a lot about this, and then stumbled across this article.

In this economy? Report says 11 teams jacked up ticket prices

Team Marketing Report found that it would cost $585.57 for a family to attend a Toronto Maple Leafs game based on its combination of tickets, food, parking and swag; by far the highest-priced night at the rink in the NHL. The Montreal Canadiens,
at No. 2 in Fan Cost Index, were at $412.12 and were the only other NHL
team over the $400 mark. Keep in mind these figures were computed using
"general seating tickets" and not the premium seats.


It's not a perfect science, but it's one publication's snapshot of the
financial state of NHL fandom; as well as a reminder that a family of
four Phoenix Coyotes
fans that buy "two small draft beers, four small soft drinks, four
regular-size hot dogs, parking for one car, two game programs and two
least-expensive, adult-size adjustable caps" are spending $221.80.

yeah but its not realistic

The caps are purchased once. Not every game so that knocks $50 off the price.

$50 doesn't seem too high does it?
I seem to remember $45 that my brother paid many years ago, and $26 ?, for tickets when I took my kids.
There were still $7 tickets up in the boondocks through 7-11, but that may have been the WHL, as my memory fades into the background, appx 1986.

Ah, but we expect a hat-trick every game, so you WILL need to buy a cap each game Smile

Forget Atlanta.
Phoenix battled St.Louis last night. "Announced" attendance: 6,889. Actual attendance? probably 4,000! I'm glad America's fastest growing city (population: 4,400,000) cares so much about their pro hockey team!

Pathetic.
The worst thing though is, phoenix is not the only team that suffers from low attendance. There is a reason 10 teams are up for sale.

You have to re-read all these comments! An excellent thread about the viability of The Jets, and I noticed that JTF agreed with me! lol

Atlanta, St.Louis and Dallas were all sold this year. 2 of these teams were bought by Canadians. :checking:

I heard the same rumor a year ago, from someone in a position to "know". I thought it was a bunch of wishful thinking at the time.

Ahhh yes the person "in the know" was my Father. RIP Dad.
