Games cancelled through Dec 30th

No surprise there...

They said that they don't imagine playing less than 48 games, and that would have to start on Jan 15th. We're getting pretty close to wiping out the season IMO...

I was pretty sure it was going to be wiped when they both made their crazy initial offers and started puffing their chests. That brought us to here, where IMO we're past the point where both sides are losing and it's all about egos and principles now.

$125 to watch a Leaf's game...........are you kidding?

Then the Jets are $30 cheaper and the 2nd highest.

The one that really stands out is Buttman. If the NHL board really doesn't believe the league needs a competent commissioner, then why not replace Buttman with Darwin the Ikea monkey? They'd save $8 million a year, results would be the same or better, and the monkey is cuter and far more personable.

Those averages are a little funny.... they use a mix of all of the seats and all of the packages available. So it's an average of everything from a full season holder price on the nosebleeds to a single game on the red line at the boards.

Here are the Leafs single game prices for last season:

Enough people, it seems, since they had an average attendance of 103.7% of capacity. Though no clue what the full-season price for those is. I don't think the Leafs even publish that info, since they've got a waiting list in the thousands and typically see single-digit annual turnover.

Season seat prices for the upper bowl are only marginally less than single-game tickets -- maybe 10% or so less. Not sure of all the details of how the lower bowl works at the ACC, but there are annual "license fees" that are additional to the ticket price. IOW, "after gouging you with the most inflated ticket prices in the league, we're going to hold you upside down and shake really hard to see what else falls out". They can do this because the holders are mostly corporations, and some wealthy individuals, and if you shake them hard enough lots more gold falls out. None of them attend games regularly or really care much about hockey. Welcome to the Leafs business model.

That sounds like Microsoft..........put an inferior product out there and charge like crazy for it.

Why aren't the T.O. journalists nailing the Leaf's owners for this lockout or are they............haven't seen any bad press about it?

I haven't seen the press nailing any owners, other than possibly Jeremy Jacobs (owner of the Bruins), during this lockout.

With all the NHL-fed rumblings about "why doesn't the NHLPA let the players vote on the current offer via a secret ballot", why not turn that around and say "hey, why don't the owners vote on the PA's latest offer via secret ballot", and use the same standards of what is considered acceptance and not the 23-teams-needed-to-overturn-comissioner-position that the NHL currently has.

It's $165 per ticket lower bowl 3/4 of way up. $13,530 for two seats per year. Plus tax.
