at that point if your trooping it all the way out there to sit in the cold .. you might as well spend the extra $100 to be able to atleast enjoy the game... i mean enless your someone who is only going to get drunk and say that they went and doesnt care about the actual game then the bleachers would be the place to sit


My seats are in the bleachers but row 1 that I got in the rangers presale. I talked to a guy who was at the last winter classic in Philly and he said I should be able to see most of it. He also said it's still better than the field seats around home plate in the first few rows.

yea id imagine that sounds about right... i couldnt imagine the seats behind home plate that are low to the field will be able to see much of anything at all..

Both my buddy and his brother won that too. As did a bunch of people on my Facebook.

Small amount held back my ass.

 

Lol you serious?  How many do you think they held back?

100% honest.

Plus you should know better by know that the devils are always full of it when it comes to these sort of things. In past seasons (especially in 2010-11 season) where they had contest for free tickets and later on we find out that everyone who entered won. Yet there were supposed to only be a set number of winners.

Plus devils knew a lot of people would not read it correctly and think they won free tickets and when they find out it's just an opportunity to buy tickets at face value they just said "fvck it" and not buy them.

Yea the Devils held some to try to use as a tool of selling Season Tickets

 

"Buy season tickets, then you get the right to buy Stadium Series tickets for the astronomical face values!!"

 

This obviously did not work too well, and as a result they are currently sitting on a nice chunk of the Stadium Series inventory

You didn't answer the question.  How many tickets do you think were held over?

You want an exact number!??! Do I sound like I work for the devils? I would just be taking a guess and what does it matter?

It's obviously more than they stated as it seems like most people who signed up "won" the contest. Again this is no surprise as the devils have done this before.

How is it obvious?  It does matter because your definition of a small number might not correlate what their definition of a small number is.   Personally, if they held over around 1,000 tix or so, that is a small number.

1,000 is a lot considering devils are alloyed about 25k seats and there are over 1400 tickets will available for stub hub and a lot of those are cheaper than what the devils held back.

The other poster is right. Devils held too many back to get STH and it backfired. By having this they get rid of inventory and add more names to their CRM. No coincidence that everyone I know who won didn't buy SS tickets previously and those who didn't already have tickets.

1,000 isn't a lot.  But I do think the number is only a few hundred.

I had a choice of: 218A, 219, 106, 117b or 121

I went with 219 in the Delta Suite.   Looks pretty sweet to me; being elevated and behind the plate.      Can't wait for it.

From my Devils Fan Experience Rep:  Devils have visitors dugout -- 3rd base side of the field for you non-baseball fans.  The Devils will attack the 1st base side of the field twice.  Rangers will have the Yankees dugout for both Stadium Series games.

 

Supposedly, both goal horns/songs will be used for goals...  no word on Kevin Clark as PA announcer.  Anyone else have other information?

Got a pair of good (though i have no idea what that means) tickets to the Islanders game from my brother's wife. The Mrs. and I are going to show up as a surprise birthday present for him. Better than nothing (ESPECIALLY since they were free), but not as good as seeing the Devils!

I follow Severe Weather NJ of FaceBook (he is pretty accurate) and he is looking at models that are predicting another Polar Vortex on January 26, so dress warm people.

Yeah at that point only thing that would be worse is either blizzard or severe rain.

 

Still 10 days away so things can change.
