  1. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    That is dope. I love sportcations too. I just went to the Kentucky Derby this year. Super Bowl 50 in 2016. Watched the Canucks in Denver and San Jose. Attended a viewing party in Nashville (Predators vs. Jets game 6). Watched NFL games (mostly Broncos) in Santa Clara, Oakland, San Diego and Seattle. MLB in Seattle, Denver and Chicago. Did Wrestlemania in Santa Clara in 2015. I would like to see the Masters. Planning on attending the 2019 Breeders Cup in Santa Anita. All 4 sports in LA during that time. Although, the Worlds Series could be over by the time I’m there.

    I personally like the all inclusive pricing on NHL TicketExchange. If I were a buyer, I would like to see the price of everything before I even think of buying it. Also with StubHub, the US version (haven't seen the Canadian pricing site yet since its launch) sure it looks good and all but then you have to factor the exchange rate and all. I would think that most Canadian buyers don't have a US currency credit card so when you buy in US funds on your Canadian credit card it fluctuates for a few days so you don't really know what the conversion rate is until its posted on your bill. I would personally buy from NHL TicketExchange over StubHub for NHL tickets. Unless its like > $20 per ticket more then I would think about it.

    I can see it being those 2 dates only because it draws parallelisms to when Trevor Linden retired (in 2008) and they retired his jersey the following season (December 2008). This after missing the playoffs (2008) and firing Nonis (just before the season ended). You know to get people interested in the following season. They probably planning so many things for the 50th season, that they need to find something for this year to keep people interested and a jersey retirement ceremony would be one.

    So we as a buyer of the Canucks tickets pay GST on it. Then if we sell on StubHub they collect GST on the buyer. Looks like a double dip for the Government.

    The one @Slickrick2369 makes more sense I hope that's right since I've been sending my friends updated emails.

    Can you post it so I can charge the right amount instead of guessing.
  10. How to approach Edler about waiving his NTC

    Its going to be like Lumme, Jovanovski, Ohlund, Hamuis, Salo, Mitchell, and Erhoff (actually his rights were traded). They are going to let Edler go to free agency.
  11. Question regarding contracts

    We will use his contract to put into expansion pool to save the players that are worth it. He has a NTC the rest of the way for the next 4 years. Canucks have no more NMC so everyone even with a NTC is fair game for the expansion draft.

    NHL TicketExchange takes 5% away from the seller's list price. I've calculated that the buyer pays about 25% to 27% on top of the end price a seller sells makes for the sale. So I listed a game for $48 per ticket. I get $45.60 and buyer pays $60.84. If you're wondering how I came up with that, after I listed my tickets, I went on the website to buy it and it gave me the final price as a buyer before you submit payment. I just wanted to see what the buyer eventually pays. That was my lowest ticket price minimum I could sell for upper bowl III (I think that's the number) for a regular game. Well actually it was $47.05 but I rounded up. The % for the buyer goes up as you list for a higher price.

    If there were row 9 in section 308 or 323 I definitely would have went there. But I didn't see any in session 5.

    I only have 2 season tickets. They let me pick up to 4 which I took advantage of. When picking seats, specifically said lower bowl. Perhaps, saving the upper bowl for pak holders and general public.
