Also funny to see the STH who used the presale to play amateur ticket brokers buy extras and now face the choice of getting stuck with them or taking a hit.

im sure there were also a handful of people who ended up making a profit this way also.. remember when tickets first went on sale everyone was acting like they were going to be so hard to get because it was "sold out"

have to wonder how many empty seats there are going to be.. but oh well its their own fault for trying to hold tickets to get people to buy seasons for one game it obviously didnt work.. reality check.. its also going to be a high of like 18degrees ... im sure that alone will turn a lot of peoples interest away from sitting out there

 

This is one of the factors making me balk at the moment.  On one hand I know I may never get to see another spectacle like this involving the Devils, on the other hand I have to make the trip from central Jersey into the Bronx, pick up my tickets and sit in a seat where I probably won't be able to see much in 20 degree weather.  The once in a lifetime aspect still has me checking tickets though.  I'm going back and forth on it.

I'm thinking that 8000 figure that the memo earlier in the week stated is going to be pretty accurate.

Devils sales certainly have a knack for shooting themselves in their own foot don't they?

You would THINK they could hire someone who, you know, has a clue of what they're doing.

Oh, absolutely, i am sure some did, but if you know this team well as a STH or hardcore fan then you knew not to believe the hype and there had to be hold backs.

Out of curiosity, anyone familiar with Yankee Stadium: what do the Legends Suite tickets give you? And would those amenities apply to this game?

The NHL almost always misses with musical performances and this is another bad one.  What age demographic are they pleasing with this?  45+ at least? A modern New Jersey band like Gaslight Anthem would seem to be perfect for this type of thing, i can't imagine their fee would be on par with Cee-loo Green if not less.

 

Half the guys in the band are Devils fans and half are Rangers fans,  they even made custom devils/rangers t-shirts during that playoff run a few years back.  Missed opportunity!

i believe those are the field boxes? my buddys grandfather owns one for the yanks its actually right next to jay z's across the isles its pretty sweet... anyways normally it gives you access to the restaurant anything you want to eat and drink(no alcohol) aand there are also menus in the seats where you can order whatever you want and they bring it down to you free of charge

Free food and soda and access to an indoor area thats heated may be worth a few extra bucks if thats what Legends offer for this game.

I almost did it. I thought I was going to be able to get 3 more tickets than I was really allotted and intended on buying extras to sell for profit, thought it'd help me fund my season ticket plan haha..

 

Glad it didn't work that way and I only got the amount of tickets I am going to use. Phew..

.. its also going to be a high of like 18degrees ...

As of right now, the national weather service has this forecast for the zip code 10451:

Partly sunny, with a high near 24. West wind 14 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.

 

I realize 24 is still plenty cold, but let's not make it worse than it is. I'll take every degree I can get.

whatever makes you feel better about it... but with that wind chill its going to feel a whole hell of a lot colder then 18degrees anyways

Are you being sarcastic or serious?

Because I've dealt with that once, and that was enough.  They were pleasant enough personally, but their message is insulting (in my mind).

Didn't someone here post a link to a web cam showing the prep at the stadium? I can't find it. Is it still live?

 If those are the field level seats (and I believe they are), you won't be able to see the game from the seats.
