Let’s Go Isles!
Check your emails. Prices are expensive. Can't imagine what the non-season ticket holder prices are going to be.
I got the email. I picked up extras for the Ranger games. Took a look at some others and they were pretty expensive.
My concern is that I have seats at Barclays that are double the price of Nassau. I’m gonna need a refund.
That sucks. I hope they do right by you.
Yeah, someone has to pay for the Kuhnackl signing.
For a team that struggles with attendance as much as this team does and did not make even one single marquee addition this offseason, they have some real nerve to expect people to pay the prices I am seeing.
How dare the fifth best team in the NHL have high ticket prices!
I know you had to get in your witty retort, but you know that point totals have nothing to do with this team's attendance. It is better when we are good, but we could be the best team in the league and we will still be in the bottom 5-10 in attendance. When you have thousands of empty seats at every game other than opening night and a few weekends/Rangers games, you should not be charging these types of prices.
I poked around a little. They are counting on Ranger fans that don’t want to go to the city to pay those prices. The games around thanksgiving and Christmas are expensive as well. Games vs crappy teams mid week seemed cheap.
If those were the discounted prices yesterday, I can’t wait to see the prices today.
Well, maybe they saw the season ticket holder base double and feel that demand is increasing?
A lot of those are resellers that’s did the math and saw the value.
Now that the credit is gone, many won’t be back.
Don’t expect last year’s call playoff prices this year.
Do we not have a credit anymore???
It's just standard operating procedure for Islanders fans. Complain that the team stinks and that's why nobody wants to go to games. Then the team is good and the prices are too high, "what happened to those $5 tickets we got last year?!" so now nobody will go and the team will lose money, ice a ****ty product, and then fans will complain that the team is bad again and that's why they won't go. If you think ticket prices won't be more expensive in Belmont, you're out of your mind as well. It's time for fans to pony up and spend money on a real product, like all the other fans of real teams do.
No. The reason you got it last year was because Barclays was fine giving away free seats hoping you would buy food and soda.
The team is back in charge and giving away free seats isn’t good for business
This is the song that never ends.
I have a feeling that when people see Belmont prices, they will be in for a rude awakening.
then this team should add top players like those other teams do.
And sidenote this presale is a joke. I was on right at 12 and there is nothing available. I bet suddenly at 2 or later they will put everything out.
I checked a few games with this presale and did some comparisons with the prices in yesterday's sale. Yesterday wasn't that much of a discount other than the ticketmaster fees.
Those other teams with "top players" finished below the Islanders last year. I'd like to see a winning team, not an all-star team that loses.
the way these teams sell tickets Is such a scam. First they tell you there's a presale during which nothing is available. Then as soon as the public on sale starts suddenly every single seat in the last three rows of the upper bowl are available and nothing else. Hoping people will bite on either crappy undesirable seats or the really expensive lower seats. Then watch two days before opening night suddenly a couple of thousand of more seats will suddenly and magically be released. It's disgusting how these teams and venues mislead and deceive their own fans.
Lou is a value guy.
I'm more miffed about the STH 'discount' we got. It was barely anything. I hame grateful that there were no fees in the portal.
Everyone holds back inventory for groups, new business, etc. The last three rows have a limited view of the scoreboard. I do believe that they have increased their STH base considerably and don't have a ton of inventory.
Well, we canceled our original plans to hit Nashville since we had other travel plans pop up, so now we're gonna kill 2 birds with one stone and come visit friends/family and go to the Isles/Rags at the barn on 2/25. Probably hit the Sharks game the 23rd too but I'm not buying those tix for a while...pretty excited!
