I don't think the Rags will have all that big a crowd advantage. Maybe 30k Rag fans 20k Devils fans.

Lou is a member of the board for the Yankees no? hence why we are the home team.

home team thing is likely because rangers couldn't be home team at both and the devils have the greater season ticket holder base with which to get more $ from.

 

between this and the draft, it's the league feeding some extra $ the devils way.

I'm sure there'll be some limit on the # of tickets sth's can purchase, I doubt they're going to make it easy for you to be able to invite all your third cousins and message board posters, even if Yankee Stadium's almost three times the size of the Rock.

I think he means the Devils have the greater sth base than the Islanders, hence why we were the other home team.  I could have sworn I heard the Isles were going to be a home team too, I guess it's the Rangers though.  Wouldn't make much sense to have the Rangers be the road team for every WC.

I heard that too. And it makes sense... then the Rags get the 2 outdoor games, PLUS their 41 home dates. Wouldn't shock me if Devs and Isles are home.

yes - that is what i meant - devils have about 8,000 full sth and another 3,000-4,000 partial sth (which include people that buy 4 or 6 game packages). i would imagine that the 8k full season ticket holders will all be given the "opportunity" to take one of their 41 home games and pay at least 2-10 times greater than the regular face value for that ticket. look - i'm not complaining as i will be one of them. i'm certainly excited for it, but i would imagine that my ice lounge seats that are $250 face will be something like $400 face for that game.

 

players have to be pretty happy about this also as it will get the total revenues up nicely and help raise the salary cap.

Oh gee that's too bad...I figured you were just moving out of the section and going elsewhere in the building.

 

I don't know how many of my other friends actually want to go.  I'll definitely keep you in mind too depending on the ticket limits.

I see.  Also, if you think you are going to get a Club Seat equivalent at the Yankee Stadium game for $400....I think you are overly optimistic....but I hope you're right!

The rumor is the Rangers are playing both as the road team.   I think the Isles game on a Wednesday has folly potential.

Thanks! Its more of a travel issue, I now live in central Ocean County so its a pain and a lot of money to take that trip 44 times a year.

 

EDIT: might grab a partial plan though. Going to 13-18 games sounds more reasonable to me.

it depends how they do it - if they basically make club seats legends seats, you might be right. but the truth is, those would be the absolute worst seats - you'll see nothing. the best seats, i would imagine, would be first rows of the upper deck or the loge section.

 

here is a good article from last year regarding the classic in Philly:

http://www.broadstre...ew-york-rangers

 

just to add something though - this is obviously more about being at the event than a great viewing experience.

 

the pomp and circumstance and what i pray are cool heritage jerseys would be a nice touch. i'd be perhaps a little disappointed if they just went with the usual once a year throwbacks and downright angry if they just wear the regular home reds. i've always agreed with lou on the idea of keeping the jersey the same and not having an alternate every other year but this is special enough that I'd like to see something a little different.

 

i don't think they change the color scheme to go back to Colorado or KC colors. there's obviously this old logo they could go with: 

 

 

New_Jersey_Devils_unused.jpg

 

or perhaps New Jersey or Devils written in script sort of like what Minnesota's jerseys look like:

I hope season ticket holders will get tickets (can only assume this is the case), but maybe they'll be able to order more? Always wondered how the ticketing worked.

Super excited though!

so i was right about the cryptic season ticket holder letter i got. 



 

no the letter i got said in the event devils play a home game not at the rock, there are refund options available. no word on the ticket given to us outright. we will probably get the option to buy discount early but not a given ticket.

 

The tickets won't be "included" in our packages, but based on that letter we got, all season ticket holders will be guaranteed seats should they choose to buy them.

EDIT: Nevermind, that was for the Caps sth's, and they were the road team for that game.  I'd assume we get a 'few' more than that.
