  1. I’m not a season ticket holder for the Rangers, but Doug, you were spot on with your PP segment on the show. I was appalled when I heard of those pricing changes. A lot of teams are bad when it comes to pricing, but this is just ridiculous.

    Jim Dolan is an a**hole, and that’s pretty much it.

  2. Just to let you know:

    The Swedish Elite League has reached the quarter finals. Tickets to the best (at least the most expensive) seats in the atrenas costs about $50. Not super cheap, but certainly not incredibly expensive for playoff games.

    You guys are being robbed.

  3. Doug, you’re right on with the playoff tickets powerplay. What the Rangers are doing is terrible.

    Last year the Penguins had a similar “buy all 16 upfront and we’ll apply the leftover to your account balance next season” policy. Let me tell you, I really could have used that extra money for vacation.

    This year, they took a different approach. Season ticketholders who put a 20 percent downpayment on next season’s tickets will get tickets to each playoff game and be billed at the end of each round.

    The Pens still are getting my money (and its interest) a few months earlier than they would, but I do like that I don’t have to fork over the cash for playoff tickets all at once.

    The team also introduced a graduated playoff pricing that rises with each series. If the Pens play 16 home playoff games this year, I’ll have paid an average of $97.25 per seat per game for C-level endzone. For the regular season, I pay $45 for a seat that team sells for $90 to single-game buyers.

    Not too bad a price, I suppose, to see the Crosby-Malkin-Hossa show. I just wonder what the prices will be once the big contracts start kicking in.
