Not going to kid myself - I got tickets to this game primarily because it'll likely be the only time we'll ever see Marty in an outdoor game.  I assume he'll be starting..and it'll be pretty freakin cool to be able to say I was there to see it 20 years from now, when he's the GM of this team  :giggle:

 

Even if the Devils do get another outdoor game in the next few years..odds are Marty won't be there.

Least expensive tix available are $200 each. I really wanted to go (I live in Virginia-wifey & me stay w/ my sis in Howell) ) and i was prepared to spend $150 per ticket but other stuff scared me off. I love my team, & unless I get "relatively decent seats, for "relatively decent price,  I'll go.

Ha Ha, Marty as GM 20 years from now, you hope, I doubt.

If he is on a losing stretch will Devils play him in this game? I would hope not.

Another outdoor game you're correct Marty won't be there as a player.

I really would like to go. If prices come down on stubhub, i plan on grabbing a few seats. At the current rates (~185) they are just a little too much, hoping they fall to 125ish but I would probably settle for 150.

No thanks.  Too expensive, I hate the cold, the sightlines will be awful, and I don't feel like being surrounded by 30,000 obnoxious drunken Ranger fans in the Bronx just to say I was there.  I never paid that much money to see this team in the Stanley Cup Finals, and I've been to every home game.  This is for two points, and it's a watered down non-Winter Classic game.

ANd they just might.  About 2-4 weeks ago the cheapest seats were in the $240 range and now they are about $185 like you said.

 

I paid with fees $186 per seat.  For the exact same section and row on stubhub right now it is going for $255 a seat so I am still happy I jumped.  Plus it looks like I will be getting those nice tickets instead of those generic TM tickets so that's a nice little bonus.

Going and plan on enjoying the experience at my favorite baseball stadium. Don't care about the cold weather and sight lines it goes with the territory. Same with the Super Bowl. I hope it snows for the SB and it's in the teens.

I'm not going due to the horrible sightlines. I'd go to something like this if it was happening in a special or historical venue, but there is nothing appealing or special about New Yankee Stadium. If this ever happened at the old stadium, I definitely would have gone.

I'll be there. Also, I voted for the season ticket option but... they aren't necessarily "included" with ST... had to pay for them. Also picked up an additional two. Going with two close friends and my 15 year old brother, I love being able to make it to some awesome games with him... probably the best game I ever saw live was #552 and it's all because we were there, felt like we won the Cup. Anyway, I understand the gripes about the cold and the sightlines but something about it just makes me want to be there. It's something very unique that we all almost in unison believed the Devils would never be a part of or at the very least it was in our distant future. So I jumped on that opportunity. I'm not even sure where I'm sitting, I'd have to look at the tickets but my brother has them right now. I know they were at the $149 price point so I think that's the second cheapest option that was available, so I am assuming it won't be that good of a view. Oh well. I'm sure it's going to be a blast either way. I've also never been to Yankees Stadium and even though it's the new one so I guess the mystique is gone, I love checking out new venues so this will be pretty cool for me. Can't wait!

Only Devils fans would piss and moan for 5 years about not being in an outdoor game and when they finally get one, they are suddenly "shocked" by the high prices and piss and moan about the poor sight lines and it being cold. :rolleyes:

Not everyone is "pissing and moaning".  For a regular-season game, it IS a lot of money.  For another, yeah, the poor sightlines and likely very chilly weather is deal-breaker for some. 

 

Big difference between wanting to see your team play in one of these things, and actually WANTING to be there to witness it.  I think most Devils fans simply wanted to see the Devils play in one of them while Marty was still on the team, for various reasons.  I just don't think they necessarily wanted to be there physically while it's happening.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

If I had the time, I would go back to all the past threads about the previous winter classics and pull up every quote by every poster that said they wish the Devils would have one and would go to it in a heartbeat and then post it right along their comments about it being too cold and expensive about this game.

 

The Winter Classic games hold the exact same value as these as they are over 2 regular season points.  We all know the only way the Devils would ever be in one is if they played the Rangers and we all knew that if the Rangers were going to be in it, they wouldn't be playing the Devils as NBC would never allow it.  This literally is the only way the Devils could and would ever be part of an outdoor game.

 

If fans do not want to go that it their choice but I just find it funny that some of the same people who previous said they would be at a Devils outdoor game in the heartbeat are now pissing and moaning about the obvious that comes with these games (high prices, cold, bad sightlines) and act like they are shocked or taking some sort of a stand against it.
