What if the Devils had tickets for like $15 a piece every game but said they would never be discounted at all.. Would that get you to games?

Maybe you don't consciously "hold out" for a game but the fact of the matter is you've told yourself that you can't go to games unless they hold a special and charge far less than face value.. The team isn't going to hold these specials in September.. They hold them for games once they see attendance is way down and they need to fill the house more.. Makes sense, but it trains fans to wait to buy tickets, because why would you buy a ticket for full price in December for a mid-week March game when you know that typically the team will have some sort of special for that game within 2 weeks of it being played? How would you feel if you bought an $85 lower-level ticket to the Feb. 8th game only to see the same seat selling for $26 a week before the game? Would you buy early again or wait next time?

Yes I would buy them if they were 15. I don't think they should give away lower level seats for much lower than they are worth. As a season ticket holder I get why it upsets you I do and youre right most people would wait instead buy those expensive seats upfront.

At the sametime for people who want to go often but cant afford to this gives them the opp. to cheer on their fav team. I think offers like this should be restricted to upper levels and I dont think there is anything wrong with one section being discounted for a supporters section like in soccer.

I'm not sure how this is going to work out tonight. The sections we have are 118, 122 and 124. I guess we could just try to get that entire balcony rocking tonight. This is going to be a very on the fly operation tonight and I don't expect it to be the most organized game. We just gotta all try to do our part and we'll see what happens.

Do you think we will me mingled with people who bought the tix that didnt anticipate supporters and are they the back rows which would be excellent?

I hope not, but I'm honestly not sure to either of your questions. This whole thing is going to be see what happens tonight but it should be expected with only 6hrs notice and the fact the sections are spread apart. The only good thing is if we are all in the back rows of those sections we are close enough that we should easily be able to all get synced up together with the chants and really rock the balcony. I'm going to get there early tonight and I'll be hanging the banner in 122 probably.

I'm going to be there early tonight and I'll be under the Devils Supporters banner, if everyone can stop by before the game and let me know where your seats are that would be great. That will give us a better idea of where everyone is sitting. Plus we are going to need people to communicate across the 3 sections so we got a little more work to do tonight then usual. The goal tonight is to completely rock the hell out of the rock.

I'm gonna see if I can pick one up on the way hopefully they let me in with it.

I think we will be able to get the balcony rocking. Last game we did people throughout the baclony were sitting down but chanting with us! I dont think with us being spread across various section will be a problem for us to get it done especially with 300 people spread across 3 sections!

I agree.. If you're willing to stand, yell, and chant for a whole season then God bless you, you deserve a discount..

And I mean, you know me.. I gave away my seats just to get some passionate fans in there cheering in my place.. Could have kept the seats and not bothered with giving them away, but I spent over an hour making sure some passionate fans could at least enjoy the seats and game if I couldn't

If you mean vuvuzelas, Ive seen a few people with them at points this season. Usually 1 or 2 at most.

It'd be awesome to get about 50 people with em.

Totally bro I'm not getting on you and I appreciate it. That guy (I forget his name he use to be a goalie) that sits with his wife to the left of you was awesome and so nice. Fans like you are the best because you give other people the chance to go in your stead and you do it on here where you know we are all die-hards and we will cheer and know our sh!t lol.

Also just so everyone knows this in advance. I'm hoping Zharkov has a great game tonight so we can start a "our sharks better" chant lol

And we'd set a record for most people to be kicked out of an arena, the Guinness World Records would be proud and horrified at the same time (just like most records). :P

Great win tonight and for the little amount of time we had to get this going I thought we did an ok job. It was hard because we were spread out through more then just 3 sections. I think we did the best we could given that situation.

I expect the game on March 12th against the Islanders to be our best game to date.

Thanks to everyone who came out on such short notice, it's a lot of fun to be a part of all this. I enjoy meeting all of you and I hope to see everyone come out on the 12th.

LETS GO DEVILS!!!

The whole free ticket thing that went on today seemed somewhat botched in that the seats were spread out, some of the people that claimed the tickets were sitting throughout the game. I couldn't stand because of that.

Despite all this, we did our thing as always and we won. I also made sure to high-five some of the people leaving (yes, even the Ranger fan that was sitting in one of the front rows). I then proceeded to wreck my lungs by signing at the Championship Plaza by that rock, therefore [maybe not really] embarrassing myself a bit in the process. It was worth it. I should do that every game I go to. ^_^

Wow what a game. I came over in the 2nd period and stood behind the section screaming my head off. I had come with friends so I couldn't leave them for long. I would have asked them to join me but one was in a wheel chair and it would have been difficult. Anyway, great idea, great game and great job getting this together on such short notice.

Love Kovy's comment about the crowd.

Is it me or did Rolston fixate on our sections as he came out as the third star and raised his stick. Looked like we were acknowledged and appreciated. :-)

Great time tonight as always. The usher was giving us a bit of a hard time because our seats were in Section 16 but after the game she came up to me and my buddy in the last row and said she will remember our faces and that next time we have a group meeting to inform them so they don't hassle us. Also, thanks to cupcake and njdevil26 for telling the usher what the deal is while she was talking to me! I guess with this being thrown together the day of, they didn't really let the ushers know what was going on. Anyway, can't wait for the next one!

Yes Rolston did point us out. I was in Sec122 with the other vuvuzela. I got told to quit cause people complained in front of us and around. The guys behind us were supporters but that was it. I did however pick the chanting up when you guys in 118 started and then I was the screaming my head off starting them lol.

Great finish to the game and glad to hear Kovys comments and happy to see a packed house.

Considering how last minute this was, I'd say it went pretty well. I can't wait for the next one that will have had time to be planned out. This section makes games a lot more fun. I noticed the one usher was being pretty insane about keeping people out but luckily I just talked to another usher who let me "slip by out of his sight". In fairness to her, she probably had no idea what was going on. Props to Rolston for acknowledging us when he skated out after the game!
