Spoke to my old ticket rep at the Ducks game. He said they are definitely trying to make a push for physical cards instead of paper tickets. STH next season will still get paper tickets this season but expect cards for partial plans either this season or next.
Also, not sure if this has been mentioned, but:
The club seats will only be the 2 center sections now. The surrounding sections will be slightly cheaper, and you can get free food around the concourse every 15 minutes with your ticket.
