In Topic: Devils re-sign Gelinas

21 September 2014 - 06:49 PM

As usual Mike Brown watches a different game than everyone else from the fans to the coaching staff.  No Gelinas wasn't bad the first 10-15 games with Larsson but he was atrocious after that including btw when they put him back with Larsson late in the season for a couple of games.  And Merrill was only bad for about a couple week stretch before the break.

What are the vouchers? I'm sorry but I'm first year season ticket holder so I don't know any of that hahaha

 

In the past they would give you additional vouchers for each preseason game equal to the number of your seats, you could turn them in at the box office and get seats anywhere else in the arena.  Most people either gave the vouchers away or gave their own tickets away and used the vouchers to sit in the lower bowl, center ice, wherever was open.

 

For whatever reason they're not giving the vouchers away this year, maybe to avoid having people turn in the preseason games for the buyback program automatically.

I I didn't get mine yet!!! But hopefully tomorrow. Do we get preseason games with it?

 

Actual tickets yes.  Vouchers no...you have to hunt them down to ask for vouchers this year.

In Topic: Ticket Buy Back

Assuming there aren't any games you actually can't make?

 

There aren't too many obvious games where the list value's so far ahead of what they'd actually sell for - at least in my section, if you have a lower bowl seat maybe it's different - but for the most part having the extra tiers helps avoid that.  And I suspect if you turn in the preseason games they won't give you vouchers for them (if you even care about going).

 

In the end, it doesn't really matter, if you pick three Classic (least expensive) games it's a smaller credit but you'd probably only get about that much back in cash selling them anyway.  If you pick higher priced games you get a bigger credit but you could also get back a little more actual cash selling them than selling the Classic games.  And clearly just about every game in the top three tiers almost every fan wants to go to anyway, so you either want to go or make a killing selling them.


This is too much of a personal question I believe.

It depends on what you wanna see. If you want the most money back obviously you give back the Rangers games but you could sell them for more on stubhub or ticket exchange so it doesn't even make sense to give those back.

I'm probably going to just give back the preseason games because I can't go to 2 out of 3 anyway and they are worth nothing on stubhub anyway.

 

Financially it makes the least sense to turn in the Ranger games, Opening Night, Chico Night or Retro Night.  Those are probably the five games you could profit most if you wanted to.  Remember, you're only getting a credit back for these buyback tickets, not actual cash.

Wow, seeing people's comments on Rich Chere's article is scary. There really is a huge divide in the Devils' fanbase. Is this a consequence of our fanbase growing (in number) and being younger, or....?

 

People getting angry at Lou and DeBoer for "chasing a Hall of Famer away", and similar comments like that... Honestly, I saw a lot of what I think was Stevens' influence early in the year and did not like what I saw. DeBoer may have ratcheted down Stevens' input toward the latter half of the season and what I saw in our defense was a huge improvement and much better play.

 

How braindead are some Devils fans to a) take Rich Chere's "story" at face value, and then b) somehow make it reflect on Lou or DeBoer doing a crappy job, by c) suddenly proclaiming Stevens as this incredible assistant coach that we d) should've held on to? Those are 4 thought processes I completely disagree with.

 

The people who comment on articles and Facebook are five steps down in intelligence from the people that post here and there aren't exactly Mensa members posting here either.  But they're the same people that think Marty should be playing over Cory in perpituity because he's Martin Brodeur or that cancel their season tickets over a goal song.  In short, don't take the comments section there as a sign of anything.  It's the same as the rest of the internet, people will write stupid things when they don't have to put their name to it.
