    Bruins Tickets Rise 100%-150%: Check it out

    My Balcony seats Row 9 ends...$24 seats.

    New Price $59.50 for Gold Regular Season games...$51.50 for all other games.

    My friend sits in the last row $16 seats..

    New Price : $37.50 Gold Regular Season.....$32.50 all other games.

    The small fan is getting royally shafted here.

    Funny, Fluto didn't report that!  His Blog is as much puff as Bish--who works for the team!!


    Remember when the Globe went after Teams on things like this?

    Don't forget that last season was a monumental success for the Jacobs family. In 2009 they won thier first playoff round of the decade, that surely calls for a doubling of ticket prices and concessions as well. That amazing success was sure to remind dear old JJ that it was once again time to exploit his happy with anything and loyal to a fault fanbase

    What economic crisis?

    Thank you Winter Classic. 1 Snowy day in Buffalo and a great game with a goal by Sidney Crosby.

    THATs why we'll be paying for this January 1 exhibition FOR A GENERATION.

    It was a horrible game played with an inch of snow on the ice, but it had an ending Bettman could only dream of.

    Is it your hunch that this was a directive from Daddy?

    Maybe I'm naive, but I would think Charlie would be more sensitive about raising the cheap tix this much.

    "After our season tickets are sold, that sets the market for our individual games," Latimer said. "We had so few seats to sell to the general public, only about 2,000 per game (after group sales and other tickets held), that those prices went up. We had more demand than in the past and less supply.

    "Our individual-ticket prices went up as much as they did in order to keep our season-ticket prices down. We couldn't have held our season-ticket prices without raising individual tickets."

    Want to know why the prices went up for each game?

    I thought that might be given as a reason at some point.  You heard it right folks, blame the loyal season ticket holders for your high prices

    It's called supply and demand people.  There are 13,500 season ticket holders this year plus partial pack holders.  Indvidual prices go up because there are fewer of them.  The 4,000 empty seats of the past few years while the team struggled are gone!

    I still have some games available for this season at a great price. I am a full STH and will sell some games for $30 less than the box office price.

    My seats are in Section 303. Email me at dantefratto@gmail.com if your interested.

    Thanks

    I am second year season ticket holder this year and am fortunate enough to have my season ticket price remain the same as last year.  I know that i will be lucky if i go to half of the games this year.  I agree that the single-game prices have increased way too much. However, because so many STHs will have the luxury of paying a much lower price per game, i think that you will find that purchasing single game tickets from STHs through Craigslist, etc., people will find that they will be getting a better deal than going through the box office. My last row loge seats cost me $65 a game but are going for $121/$140 at the box office (absurd). I know for sure that i will be selling games that i won't be attending closer to $85 a game in order to avoid the hassle of trying to find people to pick up my extra tickets.  I just don't see too many scenarios where i feel i would be able to get too much more for them without much hassle.  Not the answer to the price hikes by any means but certainly an alternative to those who are concerned about being gouged.
