NHL Tickets 2012
6/13/13: The NHL Stanley Cup Finals are set, with the Boston Bruins representing the East and the Chicago Blackhawks in the West. Boston swept the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins in four games to advance, while the Blackhawks went five games with the defending champion L.A. Kings. Game 5 was a double overtime thriller, with Chicago coming out on top 4-3. These two Original Six franchises were among the elite teams in this shortened season. The Blackhawks had the best overall record, but the Bruins seem to be unstoppable since rallying in the first round to beat the Toronto Mapleleafs.
5/30/13: The NHL Playoffs are in full swing so it is time to get tickets if you can. The Los Angeles Kings have eliminated the San Jose Sharks in seven action packed games and will face the winner of the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings for the right to represent the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup Finals. In the Eastern Conference, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins are ready to square off in the Conference Finals. With this much star power and more NHL looming, there is no excuse to miss the best action of any major sports league.
5/23/13: The NHL playoffs are fully in the second round now, and we are starting to separate the contenders from the pretenders. To be fair, any team remaining could emerge from the West - Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, or San Jose. All have the talent, coaching and toughness to make it through the gauntlet. The East is a little different. Looking at the talent available, Pittsburgh is easily the best team left, but it will not be a cakewalk. One thing is for sure, just like every Stanley Cup Playoff, this one has the making of a great two months and the best team will win the cherished Stanley Cup.
5/9/13: The NHL playoffs are in full swing and are as exciting as ever. The biggest story thus far is the two game suspension to Ottawa Senators defenseman Eric Gryba for his big hit on Montreal Canadiens forward Lars Eller. Gryba caught Eller in open ice as Eller was accepting a bad pass. Gryba appeared to hit Eller cleanly, leading with the shoulder into the body. Eller hit the ice an was immediately in a pool of blood, unconscious. He went to the hospital with a concussion and broken face bones. The NHL ruled that Gryba hit Eller's head first and that is why he is suspended.
5/2/13: The NHL Playoffs are finally here. Which means that after a three month regular season, there will be a two month playoff season for the 16 teams good enough to qualify. Hearts go out to Columbus, who went on a big winning streak in the second half, but fell a point short of making the postseason for the second time. Matchups: West: Minnesota (8) vs. Chicago (1). Detroit (7) vs. Anaheim (2). San Jose (6) vs. Vancouver (3). L.A. (5) vs. St. Louis (4). East: Ottawa (8) vs. Pittsburgh (1). NY Islanders (7) vs. Montreal (2). NY Rangers (6) vs. Washington (3). Toronto (5) vs. Boston (4).
4/25/13: As the playoffs quickly approach and the pretenders are stripped away from the contenders, we are treated to playoff hockey a bit early, particularly in the ultra-competitive Western Conference, seeds there are still at least eight teams fighting for five spots. Also the now comes word that the NHL could host up to six outdoor games next season. Many people believe that one of those games would be in Dallas at the new Cowboys Stadium. That facility, opened in 2009, has already hosted a Super Bowl and other major events, so hockey is just another game.
4/18/13: The NHL was classy throughout the entire Boston Marathon Terror Attack, but even more classy was the Boston Bruins fans. The Bruins had the unfortunate honor of being the first major sports game played after the terrible attack. The National Anthem was sung, as it is before all pro games, but the crowd took over after the second line. Bostonians drowned out the singer for the entire song, and it was chilling - in a good way. Boston natives let the world know that they would not be deterred by such a heinous act, and good for them. Let justice be done and let the season continue
4/11/13: This NHL season, though condensed to 48 games from its normal 82, and marred by a lengthy players lockout (which could have been avoided with a bit of foresight and common sense) is turning out to be among one of the more exciting seasons in years. By now, teams have less than 10 games left, and the competition to get one of the top eight seeds in either conference is staggering. Top teams like Chicago, Anaheim, Boston and Pittsburgh are fine. But teams like St. Louis, Detroit, Washington, and San Jose are scrambling to get their points totals high enough to qualify for the postseason.
4/4/13: The NHL trade deadline has come and gone, therefore there are buyers and sellers out there. The biggest seller is the Calgary Flames. The Flames traded the face of their franchise, Captain Jerome Iginla, to the Pittsburgh Penguins. They also traded away their best defense man in Jay Baumeester to the St. Louis Blues. JB is no rental, he has another year on his contract. Dallas traded away Jaromir Jagr (unthinkable a few years ago) to Boston. The Eastern Conference now looks like a three team race between the Penguins, Bruins, and Canadiens, and it should be an exciting fight to the finish.
3/28/13: The NHL trade deadline is not far off, and we are now seeing teams jockeying for position. The Western Conference is again a free for all. There are some solid teams like the Chicago Blackhawks, Anaheim Ducks, St. Louis Blues, and Detroit Red Wings, but after that - it is anyone's guess. Minnesota is leading the Northwest Division, which they should after pledging about $200 million to two players. But what is always interesting is the lower seeds - who seem to have a knack at navigating through the playoffs like L.A. did last year. In any case, we should be in for a wild playoffs, and may the best team win.
3/21/13: The NHL formally announced its realignment and playoff plans now that the NHLPA has signed off on it. The conferences will be re-aligned, with 16 teams in the East and 14 teams in the West. Detroit and Columbus will join the East and Winnipeg will go westward.The idea is to cut down on travel, and it mostlly makes sense, though the Lightning and Panthers are in a Division with mostly Canadian teams, so they got hurt. The re-alignment also ensures that every team plays in every arena throughout the year. The playoffs will be from two divisions with wild-card teams.
1/31/13: Maybe NHL Commissioner Gary Bettmen is right after all. The NHL just completed a very contentious lockout and lost 34 games of an 82 game season. Only seven years ago, the league lost the entire season. One might think that fans had had enough. That they would not return. But that is not the case. Attendance is actually up. The stands are filled. Everyone who has mocked the league now looks foolish. by no means is the NHL going to overtake the NFL in terms of popularity. But the it stands to reason that there is a silent majority that loves hockey and will stick with the NHL through thick and thin.
1/24/13: The shortened NHL season began on Saturday, with almost every team participating in opening night. The season is condensed to 48 games, with each team only playing teams from their own conference . There is no All-Star game or Winter Classic this season, but those marquee games should return next season. Fans can expect a weekly game on national television for the duration of the schedule. Several games made the nation broadcast in opening week, with Philadelphia losing twice in front of a nationwide audience, once at home to the Pittsburgh Penguins as well as in Buffalo.
1/17/13: The lockout has officially ended now that the NHLPA has ratified the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The season will be 48 games, the minimum the NHL claims a season must be, and will begin on January 19th. The league and the players union signed a Memorandum of Understanding to get the season started. Training camps got underway on Sunday, and the 26 of the league's 30 teams will play on the revised opening day. All games in the shortened season will be played within the conference, meaning that fans of West Conference teams will not get see stars like Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin.
1/10/13: GAME ON!!! As NHL fans already know, the players and owners have come to an agreement on new Collective Bargaining Agreement, meaning the lockout will end soon. While the final details need to be shored up, and the owners and players have to ratify the agreement, the major framework is in place for a 10 year deal. The season will be shortened to around 48 games, and should begin by January 19. The agreement between the two sides has been contentious, but the important news is that the NHL will not lose another season and NHL hockey will return very soon.
1/3/13/: Maybe it's a New Year's gift to fans, but NHL owners and players are back at the bargaining table trying to work out something that would save the season. The league believes that games must start by January 19 in order to salvage 48 games. To date, all games through January 14 have been cancelled, and the next cancellation may be for the entire season. The NHLPA presented a counteroffer to the league that the owners are now considering. Should this latest proposal be rejected, then there will be very little time to get teams prepared to play any games in the 2012-2013 season.
12/27/12: Over 100 days since the Lockout began and still there is no end in sight. The owners and players have not met since mid December and no talks are planned. To date, games through January 14 have been cancelled, representing over 50% of the season. If an agreement is not made in the next two to three weeks, then the entire season is in danger of being lost. Again. At this point, it seems like that will be the end result, while many fans have simply moved on, with no indication that they will return once NHL resumes play.
12/20/12: The league and the players union are making strides to get the seaon cancelled. The league has filed a formal complaint with the National Labor Relations Board for unfair negotiation tactics and are looking for affirmation that their lockout is legal. Meanwhile, the union is making advances to disolve itself, then it would be able to file a anti-trust lawsuit. This is the same move the NFL players enacted in their lockout. However, that move was negated when the league and players negotiated a deal. As it stands now, all games through Dec. 30 are cancelled, and it looks like more will be cancelled in the near future.
12/13/12: Cancelling the entire 2012-2013 NHL season is becoming a stronger possibility. The league officially cancelled all games through December 30. The All-Star Game and Winter Classic were cancelled weeks ago, and the latest round of cancellations means that about 42% of the season is lost. The latest round of negotiations obviously did not yield any breakthroughs, and many are beginning to question if the two sides really want to salvage this season. Many players are already overseas, so this may be best served to take all the time needed to solve the issues once and for all.
12/6/12: No news is, well, no news. At least not any news in regard to some sort of progress being made in the current Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations. The owners are still locking out the players and more players are fleeing to Europe or Russia in the meantime. The owners and players took the unusual step of meeting without Commissioner Gary Bettman or Union chief Donald Fehr this past week. Instead it was just owners, players, and legal counsel. The sides claim they are trying to find a way to negotiate and bring the lockout to an end. So far there has been no progress and more games are expected to be cancelled soon.
11/29/12:The league continues to cancel games as the NHL lockout continues. The NHL announced all games through December 14, 2012 are now cancelled, as well as the All Star Game. The loss of the All Star Game, combined with the cancellation of the Winter Classics are major losses for the league. The owners and players have agreed to allow federal mediators assist in the negotiations. Mediation may help break the stalemate, however any recommendations of mediators are non-binding. But the league and players' union do need assistance, or else they risk losing the entire season for the second time in seven years.
11/22/12: Its Thanksgiving and there is still no NHL hockey. The league and players remain 'far apart' in negotiations so there is still no end in sight. Throughout this process, the players have brought forth numerous proposals, without much deviation. The owners, however, have steadfastedly rejected all proposals and have even refused to meet on occasion. The season is not lost yet, but time is running out. Without a breakthrough soon, the NHL will be forced to lose an unprecedented second season in only seven years, which is simply an embarrassing stain on this once proud league.
11/15/12: Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) talks heated up over the past week, with the NHL and the players union meeting for four straight days. There is no breakthrough yet, but reports indicate that negotiations - which have cancelled the first two months of the season at a minimum - are progressing. A full season is out of the question at this point, and even the Winter Classic has been cancelled. However, there is some renewed optimism that a deal may be done soon, as the only major issue is the "make whole" challenge on how to pay the players. Here's hoping that a deal gets done soon so we can all watch the NHL soon.
11/8/12: Negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement continue to stall, and all games through November have already been cancelled. The league has now announced that their showpiece game, The Winter Classic played on New Years Day, is cancelled. The game was scheduled between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium at the University of Michigan. Many expected over 100,000 fans for the game. Players are getting more outspoken against the owners these days, including Ryan Suter who claims the owners negotiated large pre-lockout deals in bad faith. But for NHL fans, it is just more of the same.
11/1/12: The NHL season is slowly slipping away. But this time, instead of cancelling a week or two's slate of games, the league has cancelled all games through November. The league submitted a 50-50 revenue sharing plan a few weeks ago - a plan that was contingent upon games starting November 2. The players union rejected that offer and countered with three alternatives, which the league then rejected. Negotiation talks have been scarce, and now there is no end in sight. Even the annual Winter Classic on January 1, the NHL's hallmark regular season event is in jeopardy at this point.
10/18/12: The end of the lockout may be near, as the NHL has finally presented a reasonable Collective Bargaining Agreement proposal in front of the NHLPA. The offer is for a 50/50 revenue split (still over $200 million in reduced wages for players), but cuts would be deferred. The agreement, according to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, is contingent upon an 82 game schedule this season beginning on November 2. The condensed schedule is not as taxing as it may appear, only adding one game every five days, with playoffs still ending in June. Now the onus is on the NHLPA, which must make a decision in short order. 9/27/12: The NHL owners and players still remain far apart on any sort of new agreement on the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The NHL officially cancelled all September preseason games, and October preseason games are in jeopardy. Training camps are not being held, obviously, and a number of players have signed with European or Russian teams. In an interesting twist, players from Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames have filed for an injunction from the lockout, as (they assert) it violates Alberta, Canada labor laws. If they win, the owners could not legally lockout Oilers and Flames players. The NHL is fighting this legal battle as well, now.
9/20/12: It's official, the NHL owners have locked out the players. At this point, no games - either preseason or regular season - have been cancelled. This is the fourth work stoppage in the last twenty years. It could threaten the league's popularity with the fans it had to win back after a lockout canceled the 2004-2005 season. While there has not been any formal discussions, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA Special Council Steve Fehr are speaking informally, presumably in an attempt to find some middle ground. Hopefully, an agreement can be reached soon with little to no effect on the season.
9/13/12: The current Collective Bargaining Agreement is set to end in two days - Saturday, September 15. Negotiations for a new CBA have stalled, and the owners claim they will lock out the players if a new agreement is not reached by the deadline. The owners have the option of not locking out the players, and continuing with the current CBA until a new deal is made, but that is unlikely. The two sides are still far apart on revenue splits, revenue sharing, term length of contracts, and free agency eligibility, and a lockout seems to be inevitable. 9/6/12: There is little more than a week until the September 15th expiration date of the existing Collective Bargaining Agreement, yet no new deal seems to be in sight. The league broke off talks last Friday and no new negotiations are scheduled at this point. It appears that the NHL owners will lock out the players, which really will not have any affect for a few more weeks when training camps are due to open. If there is a lockout, this would be the NHL's fourth work stoppage in 20 years, an absurdly high rate indicating the need for new leadership on both sides.
8/30/12: Some progress is getting made in the negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The league has responded to the players association's proposal, and there have been a few rounds of senior executive only talks. The league wants to cut the players' portion of revenues from 57% to 46%. The players responded by accepting essentially 2% cuts for the first few years of a new CBA. The current CBA will expire in two weeks and the sides are still far apart on an agreement. Owners say they will lockout players if no agreement is reached, but right now that would only affect training camps, and not actual games.
8/23/12: No movment in the NHL/NHLPA collective bargaining agreement talks means that the possibility of a lockout is growing. The owners and players a still miles apart on key issues including the revenue split, contract term limits, and free agency eligibility. Additionally, the NHLPA wants the owners to share revenue similar to the way NFL owners do. The NHL claims they are discussing an "enhanced revenue sharing system," but have not disclosed what that is. In any case, it is less than a month until the deadline, and from a PR view, the players are clearly winning.
8/16/12: The National Hockey League Players Association (NHLPA) formally responded to the NHL proposal for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The current CBA will expire on September 15, and the league has indicated they will lock out the players if a new agreement is not reached. The NHLPA has noted that they are willing to continue playing without a new CBA and that is legally permissable. The NHLPA counterproposal details are not known yet, but indications are that the owners and players have a lot of work ahead to bridge the gap, but both sides always tells the media that the other side is being unreasonable. 8/2/12: The NHL and the NHLPA continued to negotiate on a new collective bargaining agreement. The NHL presented their offer, which includes expanding revenue sharing, term limits on contracts, and a 22% rollback on contracts. Donald Fehr and the NHLPA will not make a counterproposal until they have been able to review the entire agreement. The current agreement expires on September 15, and this was the agreement reached after the league shut down for the 2004-05 season. No one wants another lost season, and hopefully a new agreement will be reached in the next six weeks and there will be no loss of games.
7/26/12: The NHL and the NHLPA continued their negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement. Rumors are swirling that the league wants to cut the players' revenue share from 57% to 46%, as well as restrict years on contracts and require 10 years of league service before being eligible for free agency. Neither the league nor the players can afford another lost season, and there will likely be a comprimise over the next few weeks. However, the owners' demands are running counter to the recent megadeal signings of Zach Parise, Ryan Suter, and Shea Weber, and this story is far from over. 5/22/12: Down to only four teams, two in each conference, the NHL playoffs have certainly lived up to the hype. In the East, two perrenial contenders, separated only by a river and a few miles of traffic are battling to see if the Devils or the Rangers will represent the conference. On the West Coast, the Phoenix Coyotes are fighting with another upstart, the LA Kings. The Kings run thus far has been amazing. They snuck into the posteason as the lowest seed, then proceded to knock off the #'s 1 and 2 West teams, and now own a 3-1 series lead on the #3 seed.
5/17/12: The NHL Playoffs just got interesting as the field has been narrowed to four teams. The New York Rangers and the New Jersey Devils are battling for the East, with the Rangers winning Game 1. The Phoenix Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings are vying for to be the West representative in the Stanley Cup, and LA holds a 1-0 series lead. Should LA win the series, they will have earned it, by beating the #1, 2, and 3 seeds. And even though no one will admit it, both the NHL and their television partners are probably rooting for a New York-LA Stanley Cup final to boost ratings.
5/11/12: The NHL playoffs are nearing the end of the Conference Semi- Finals, otherwise known as the second round. The West will be decided out West. the L.A. Kings swept the St. Louis Blues, thouroughly dominating every game. Highly regarded Nashville was knocked out by Phoenix in five games, setting up a desert series from two non-traditional teams. The Eastern Conference has been more competitive. New Jersey beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4 games to 1, and the New York Rangers lead the Washington Capitals 3 games to 2. Both series have seen two overtime games, as teams have traded blows each game.
5/3/12: The NHL Playoffs continue with traditional rivalries in the East and new faces in the West. Philadelphia is playing New Jersey, with the teams splitting the games in Philly. The New York Rangers drew the Washington Capitals, and Alex Ovechkin is back to his old form, scoring the winning goal in game 2, tying the series is tied at one game apiece. Contrary to the familiarity of the teams in East, Phoenix took two games at home over the Nashville Predators and the L.A. Kings stole two on the road from the St. Louis Blues and now head back to Tinsletown.
4/25/12: The NHL Playoffs are set to start the second round without powers Detroit, San Jose, Pittsburgh and Vancouver who were all beaten in Round 1. But the biggest news this week was the 25-game suspension handed down to Raffi Torres of the Phoenix Coyotes for a check against Blackhawks' star Marrian Hossa. After Hossa made a pass, Torres lept and delivered his shoulder to Hossa's head, causing a concussion. 25 games is the longest in the modern era, ahead of Dale Hunter's 21-gamer in 1993. The league cited charging, intent to targer the head, and repeat offenses in handing down the punishment.
NHL Tickets 2011-2012 - Late Season Updates
12/20/2011 Update: This week we get to see the surprisingly prolific New Jersey Devils' offense face tri-state rivals the New York Rangers. In other news, the Kings announced that Darryl Sutter will be the new coach. The Bruins extended their win streak to 5 with a tight 3-2 victory over the Canadiens. The Boston Bruins are currently at the top of the Eastern Conference, with the Flyers and Panthers rounding out the three divisional leaders. In the Western Conference the Chicago Blackhawks are at the top with a NHL leading 46 points. The Minnesota Wild and Dallas Stars are the remaining divisional leaders in the Western Conference. As reported in the stats updated over at ESPN there is currently a three-way tie for the points lead as Phil Kessel, Claude Giroux and Henrik Sedin. While Steven Stamkos is the current leader in goals (20) with Kessel just one goal behind. On the defensive side of things, Brian Elliott leads in both 'Goals Against Average' and 'Save Percentage' while Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings has the most wins with 20. And lastly, we have the more whimsical list of "ruffians" aka those that lead the league in penalty minutes. The two players that stand clearly at the top are Zac Rinaldo and Zenon Konopka. Keep, "Keeping it gangster" on ice guys.
12/7/2011 Update: The big news in the hockey world this week was the fairly extreme and unexpected realignment of teams. What is the NHL realignment The crux of the change is switch to four "conferences" in place of the existing 6 "divisions". This allows for for reciprocating home series' for all the teams. When is the NHL realignment going into effect Potentially as early as next season, but there hasn't been a hard date set. Why is the NHL realignment going into effect To adjust for the move of the Atlanta Thrasher to the Winnipeg Jets. There were many potential issues with this change such as breaking up local, divisional and historical rivalries, but for the most part these are intact and their hasn't been too much outrage over the shift.

Vancouver Canucks $160.54 4. San Jose Sharks $160.39 5. Montreal Canadiens $159.06. With not much changing at the top, I wanted to look at New York vs Boston. New York Rangers come in at $124.74 and the New York Islanders have averaged $51.78 over the last 7 days. The Boston Bruins come in 2 spots behind the Rangers with avg. ticket prices of $99.96.
As of 11/8/2011 As the NHL season enters it's "dog days of November" so to speak, the big-time stories have been few and far between. In fact if you Google "nhl" right now the Benching of Ovechkin is one of the top 3 stories given prominence as top news. So news is light, but prices are maintaining steady. You might expect a demand increase with the NBA on continued strike, but we haven't necessarily seen a significant change compared to expected NHL ticket sales. There was new entry in the top most expensive NHL tickets this week (the Flyers): 1. Toronto Maple Leafs $221.69 2. Montreal Canadiens $186.86 3. Winnipeg Jets $161.14 4. Vancouver Canucks $144.73 5. Philadelphia Flyers $135.36.

Carolina Hurricanes $42.23 28. New York Islanders $41.77 29. Tampa Bay Lightning $33.21 30. Phoenix Coyotes $31.06. With the NBA lockout still lingering, maybe NHL will finally get the mainstream viewing it deserves. Until next time...
As of of 10/18/2011 Although the top team remained the same this week, there were some minor shakeups in the 5 most demanded NHL teams as we leave the honey moon phase of the 2011-12 NHL season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs hold down the top spot again with the brand new Winnipeg Jets moving up a spot to number 2. Yall Canadians love your hockey though, no doubt about that. Our numbers are just another way to look at it, with 4 of the top 5 teams ranked by average ticket price hailing from the country of Canada. On the opposite side of things, the least demanded teams included no Canadian franchises, but rather teams that tended to be in the Southern half of the United States (coincidence? We don't think so, see NHL prices by location): 26. Anaheim Ducks $43.46 27. Carolina Hurricanes $43.31 28. Florida Panthers $39.19 29. Phoenix Coyotes $38.54 30. Tampa Bay Lightning $34.07
