With respect to #2 - I overhead someone leaving the NHC last weekend say "Well, that wasn't worth $15". I think that sums it up nicely.

SCSU is charging $25 a ticket for regular season games against Mankato. The place was maybe half full on Senior Night (don't really think that is the draw anyways). The tiered pricing has gotten out of hand, I remember when it was $5 a ticket and $15 for MN/UND.

On another note, I'm in Nashville and I'd like to watch the game on B2, is it worth the $8 or is the quality so crappy that I should watch the Wild/Gopher game and listen to this one?

I remember when gas was $.69 per gallon and a candy bar was a quarter. What's your point? :confused:

My point is games were, oh I don't know... SOLD OUT when ticket prices were reasonable. Even when the team was bad. And now you can't draw on a $12 ticket either... hmm. And the student excuse is not valid - they might be 20% of the total crowd. That still leaves over 4000 seats to be sold.

And the University has done what with the additional ticket revenue? Oh yes, they've renovated... oh wait nothing. Except made some fancy video about how neat the place will look if you can fly like a bird through it. I guess that left Morris about $10 bucks left to buy lunch at Atwood.

If your connection is good yes its worth the money. Its a little blurry but you can still follow the puck well.

I didn't think the point was that hard to follow. He's saying the price is too high relative to the quality of the product. :p

The prices for season tickets have remained stable. I believe the number of ticket holders has decreased with corporate sponsorship over last 2 years. I do not have official numbers, but I know that there have been a decrease, as I bought tickets for this weekend series to where season ticket holders once had.

If you think, all season ticket holders were given tickets in their season packages for this series. Those seats are all considered sold tickets. When the place was empty a few years ago, attendance was announce at 4,500 or so, because of all the sold ticket, not actual attendance.


If the Huskies can do something in the NCAA and build some consistency at seasons end, they will get back to where they once were, and individual season ticket holders will come back. I use to be a season ticket holder, until my wife was laid off, and we had to make the difficult decision to not renue. I am certain there are more people in my situation. I am however excited to become a season ticket holder again next year.

Great to see the Husckeys wake up and send the series to 3 games. They waited too long to get going in my opinion, but worth the wait. Always good to see smiling faces filing out of the NHC. [Oddly enough, I found myself apologizing to some of the Kato fans for St. Cloud winning the game.]

First period both teams played tight as if trying not to make a mistake.

Watched the game from the suite directly above the net and felt like the goalie judge. Mike Lee played a good game. He had no real chance to stop either of the goals by the Land Cows in the second period.

First goal came from a 2 or 3 man on 1 rush. Didn't see what caused the turnover in the SCSU end, but simply a good play by MSU-M.

Second goal was a deflection off a hard slap shot. Lee would have had to have been bionic to stop that shot.

As hard as it is to say, Lee should start tonight but on a short leash. If he looks tired or gives up two quick goals, put in Dunn (aka do anything to win baby). Speaking of tired, Cook may be gassed late if he plays tonight so it will be interesting to see who Jutting starts in net.

Marvin seemed to be a team solidifying force on the ice. Overall, the Husckeys had the better of play even though MSU-M had more SOGs. Crowd somewhat quiet until final period. Hopefully the students are back tonight, tanned, juiced and loose.

And hail to my Hornets. This morning's coffee cake was delicious!:D

I do not think that tiredness will be an issue with Cook. I mean, a few years ago Johnson and Bobby11!!1!!! went three games, and the stood strong through until triple overtime. It is all about adrenaline and if Cook can stay strong and the team playing well in front of him.

With that being stated, I hope the Huskies can pressure Cook early and have him moving left to right, up and down, pounding on those rebounds in front.

I have just received word that Nate Hardy will be in goal tonight for the Huskies. Instead of ending the rotation we're going to expand it.

Ah lets see - trying to deal with budget issues and support the athletic department.

Have you been following the renovation issue? The shovel goes in the ground in March 2011.

A standing room ticket for a 3/4 full Mariucci last weekend for the WI series was $35.

You are *****ing about a $12 tx and an $8 B2 fee? What world do you live in?
