NHL tickets too expensive? Says who?

What are the average ticket prices for NHL games?
Well, here is the answer from the LA Times.
Average ticket prices for NHL teams was $41.19

So, when some uninformed blowhard who has never lived outside of Kansas City or Pittsburg, Ks says "NHL tickets are too expensive" tell them the average ticket price in a comparable market, like Buffalo, is $30.

The highest average ticket price is the Philadelphia Flyers at $54.81 (and they still sell out, by the way).

yeah, the tickets are cheaper this year b/c the NHL is trying to bring back fans.

check the prices of pre-strike instead of post-strike and there is a difference.

I didn't say they were "cheaper" than anything.

I simply pointed out that they are not as expensive as the uninformed KC media purports them to be.

The NHL will die because the tickets are too expensive. Remember this: the 6 canadian teams are making more than 33% of the leagues ticket revenue. Hockey tickets will be sold easily in Canada, always. Try to make me believe that places like Atlanta, Colombus, Tampa, Miami, Phoenix etc...Can do the same....
