I just want to give props to Colin for pulling over $800 out of his own pocket to buy four sets of tickets at the special reduced presale price to games 1 & 2 of the next series for the sole purpose of selling them to other Devils fans at no extra cost. If the Devils end up playing the Rangers, I'm sure he easily could have made a pretty nice profit had he put them up for sale on eBay or Stubhub -- which would've been totally understandable had he chosen to do so.

But because he's such a huge Devils fan, on his own accord, he made sure that eight Devils fans -- myself included -- will be in the building for at least one game during the Eastern Conference Finals -- at a low price to boot.

Thanks, dude. I'll be sure to seek you out at Game 2. You can count on that.

:cheers:

(Just so everyone knows, all the extra tix he bought for this round have been sold.)

Nice, way to be Colin. Good looking out for your fellow fans. And good looking out making sure we keep Ranger fans out of the building as much as possible.

hard to believe we ranked 24th in attendance yet magically sell out every conference final.

:noclue:


There are comments like these and others in this thread like " how did they sell game 1 when don't know if its home or Away" that show you guys weren't here in 95, 00, 01 and 03. Which I guess is a good sign.

This is the ecf, its not round 1 vs Florida. The ecf is a where hockey becomes a national event. They sell out instantly especially if its a possible nyr vs njd. If this is nyr vs njd those tickets are worth their weight in gold and everyone wants to make a buck. Njd vs nyr ecf would be the biggest tri state sporting event in quite some time

The same



Such a disappointment too. In past years the Cup Finals tickets always had something extra to them. I was hoping for some foil Cup or something fancy on the Finals tickets...

They are straight up lying when they say that. I got my set of 4 side by side for a potential game 7 at 11:14am. People are still pulling up singles.


Not necessarily. Sometimes it can be sold out and the tickets are returned to the inventory. Maybe credit cards were denied or someone tried to make multiple purchases and the later purchases were voided or they didn't finish the transaction in time or cancelled the transaction. In the meantime those tickets are pulled from the inventory.

There have been plenty of times I tried to get concert tickets that were sold out immediately and then went back a couple of hours later and got tickets.

I have some friends who still need tickets....

What do you guys see these prices going to for home game 1 and home game 2?

I am curious where this is headed.

Kind of interesting that the resale value on the secondary market is way higher for The Rock than it is for MSG. Does anyone know why? Typically, face value AND resale value for MSG is usually double The Rock's, which is mostly the reason they show up in our arena, for a little discount. Not sure why a Rangers fan would spend $240 on tickets to come to The Rock, when there's tickets for $160 to go to MSG... Weird no?

Well we already know that a really good percentage of Devils fans bought the bulk of the tickets during the 5 hour presale and 10 minute general sale window. Maybe the fans have every intention to go to the games, unless they get something RIDICULOUS on StubHub, kinda like "I'll go, unless I get an offer I can't refuse" sort of deal..

Might be a good sign that the prices are so high? I wouldn't know though, I'm not too knowledgable on all the ticket reselling stuff as some others are..

My guess is twofold:

A) People were cautious about buying until the Rangers actually made the Conference Finals and prices will spike eventually
B) Since 'our' ticket prices were so high as well, and people showed they were willing to pay that price through the Devils, our secondary market's gone up more than normally

It's simple, their first home game is tomorrow night and they have a lot less time to sell those tickets so their prices are dropping. We have 3500 on Stubhub right now, which is absurd.

You can tell, they're already starting to worry about what happens if it gets to 2-0 by tomorrow night, with two and a half days between then and Saturday afternoon for Devil fans to bail out on the series.

Clearly the Devils have done all they could, to the point of absurdity. If the fans don't step up in Games 3 and 4 they have nobody but themselves to blame.

I can see how we're opening ourselves up for jokes with the whole NOBLUE thing, but hey, I think it'll get the job done, at least do a better job than previous years.

Any comment following any post or article during this series has got me writhing in anger, it's unbelievable. The complete arrogance and cluelessness just surprises me everytime. They literally outdo themselves everytime, it's infuriating, I'm minutes away from decided not to use a computer the next few weeks except for emails.

I thought this would happen against the Flyers fans and it didn't. Never thought the Rangers fans could infuriate me so uncontrollably as the past day...

We all realize how frustrating it can be, but you have to take a breath and consider the context. Historically speaking, the internet is in its infancy and its most paramount drawback is society's ability to post, chat, or interact with the veil of zero consequences. I hate the rangers and their silly fans, but I truly believe that the majority of people who write such nonsense on the internet would never say it in public if they could be held accountable. Let them write/tweet/post what they want. Let's just win game 2.
