I went on TiqIq which is the best site as it aggregates ticket prices across multiple sources (eBay, stubhub, TiqIq).
The minimum for any Pens game is the same as the Rangers and Bruins. Only the Blackhawks amongst US teams are higher.
Hell Caps tickets last night were under 30 for the Rangers and Flyer tickets also all season you can get them for 20.
So based on that metric I have no idea how any if you can complain about lack if demand. BDind me a Pens game I can get for under 30 and maybe then I'll agree.
Hell I'd live to get face value seats.
I'm not sure that has anything to do with demand per this discussion. The pens have systematically seen demand decrease and prices sky rocket in the last three years while using student rush to continue a sellout streak. Dirt cheap tickets to sellout, yet raise their loyal fans costs almost double. While I see your point it's not that relevant to what is being talked about.
Not too mention lowest ticket prices across the league doesn't equate to demand either. Could be those places have cheaper lower end tickets anyways. Or bigger buildings. And so forth.
I'm not following.
I browse TiqIQ and it shows the best correlation between demand and interest.
Go look at what the minimum and average Coyotes prices are and then look at the Penguins and compare to a couple of other teams.
If demand was low, than TiqIQ wouldn't have the Pens ticket prices so high.
You think the Pens sell outs and demand is artifical and low? Check out Flyer and Caps tickets on the site.
If the Pens were getting sell outs and the secondary market had prices in the teens or twenties I could see it, but right now I don't.
Why would you compare them to other teams? This isn't a comparison of the Penguins to the Maple Leafs, the Rangers, or the Panthers. Its a comparison of the Penguins 2013 to the Penguins 2012 to the PEnguins 2011. There is a noticeable trend.
