2013 NHL Draft

I won!

 

As a season ticket holder, I suppose I get special treatment in the lottery too.

 

:yay:

I lost too but I'm not surprised with the way things got complicated with all 7 rounds in one day. I imagine next year will return the draft to a more traditional form and it's in Philly so I like my odds of being able to go to that one.

Congrats Crisis! Good to see at least 1 board member won. I didn't think they would be this hard to come by.

So far on this board only one has won raffle tix and he's an STH lol

 

No one on HF has reported a win either.

 

Should start a seperate thread for draft ticket requests. This thread is already massive and it will keep that stuff seperate from discussing the actual draft.

He prob lost out on the raffle and is bitter about it.

 

you realize he could probably get credentialed in from SBN right? Even if he can't it doesn't make him wrong. When STHers are the ones winning there's a problem

You think because that guy agrees, you're not both off base? Ok.. The only concession I'll give is that maybe STH shouldn't have received more tix than on their account.. Other than that, I feel bad for people who can't make it in the building, but dems da breaks

He is the media writer to SBN which is not SI or ESPN.

 

Again, media writer for an online publication.

 

That gives him as much credentials as any blogger on the internet.

When STH don't win stuff like this, they bitch all over.  The thing is, there's fewer STH than non-STH.  Rewarding your STH is absolutely the right way to go if you're the Devils.

Slightly OT: I think he used to be a poster here years ago. I'll have to check out his blog on SBN now.

 

Not trying to be argumentative but I'm not sure what the Devils could have done differently. Overall I think they handled a tough situation the best way they could. Perhaps they could've announced that due to the circumstances this year, there would be less tickets available to the public, but that's about the only thing I think they could've done differently and that's nitpicking.

I'm all for giving them some, but ther'es no reason on earth they should have 4 each. THe penguins last year released 1500 for the first day and it was first come first serve not some random lottery where only 250 people win. Not that those are great odds but not ridiculously low ones like here

Sigh. If you think online writers can't get any press credentials, you really have no idea what you're talking about

Sure they can, but I doubt their company would give tickets to the media writer but instead would send a hockey writer.

If you can pay for 6 season tickets, you can pay the ridiculous ebay prices for 2 more. And let's be honest, probably more people got more tix than they had for the season than those who got fewer

I like Lepore but he's a veteran of the complaining of this board.

 

First come first serve has all sorts of other issues - was that the day of, or through some online giveaway?

So why don't you apply for credentials? You have a Devils blog.
