Ha!

I should have said I don't really care about the chance to win something.

I'm not angry about the lockout. It was what it was. It would be nice to win something, but I don't think it's something that's needed.

Even at 50% off, the merchandise made in a 3rd world country is too expensive.

Im not drinking the Kool-Aid on this "promotion."

It appears these vouchers can only be used for the basic Aramark food. Places like Burgatory and Primanti's will not be too busy on those nights, unless they honor the promotion or have a similar offer.

If the free t-shirt is old school gold, that's all the apology I need. :D

If it's vegas khaki however, I am disappoint.

In all seriousness, nobody is buying a ticket for the free food, so I do appreciate the gesture of taking care of the customers already in the building.

Maybe you should be thankful that we even have games to watch his year? The penguins owe us nothing. The fact they are doing promos and contests shows the class act the organization is.

It's a business doing the smart thing and trying to mend a brand problem that it knows it has with its customer base.

They have the equivalent of what? 16K season tickets sold? They don't need to offer anything to get people back in the building; it's largely filled already. IMO, this is a pretty nice move that they clearly didn't NEED to do. Good on them.

Clearly, the team ownership thinks differently.

"However, now that the NHL is back, we want to assure you that the Pittsburgh Penguins will do everything we can to regain your trust and show how much we value your amazing support."

Smart business people. It's not just about getting people in the building.
