    Comets Prospect

    The Canucks need to sign a #1 free agent goalie or get one by trade then. He will be #1 and Demko #2. They have to get rid of Markstrom and Nillson no matter if they get something in exchange or not.

    Funny that people say that Markstrom and Nillson are tank commanders. The truth is that they are giving their 100% best. They are trying to win. They are just not NHL caliber. If the Canucks keep any of them for next season I will seriously question the competence of the management. They proved over and over and over that they are just not good enough. I saw a Canucks practice (Not public) and the players were scoring at will against both of them. It was laughable.
  3. Season Ticket Seat Recommendation

    And also I would add that if the game ends up in OT the defensive zone stands will see the Canucks attack.

    Impressive indeed but after witnessing what happened to the Los Angeles Rams following their relocation from St-Louis I am in a wait and see position. In a few days they got 60,000 season ticket deposits for 1 to 8 seats each just before the 2016 season. Well 2017 was only their second season. They won their division with a super exciting offense. Results in the stands? They played their home games in front of tens of thousands of empty seats.
  5. Markstrom Moving Forward: A Big Head's Take

    I disagree when people say that Markstrom is only a backup. I'm sorry but he's not NHL caliber period and the Canucks should just release him if they cannot trade him (Who would trade for him seriously). If Demko is not ready we need to sign a free agent this summer.

    Thanks but no thanks for me. We would know by now If Seattle was a great hockey city. True Las Vegas is having a fantastic first season. Let's talk after 5 seasons once the team goes back to normal. True that with millions of tourists the market might be still good but they will still fall second behind the Raiders (At least from October to December) once they move there in a couple of years. I'll be the first in line to buy seasons when the NBA returns to Seattle though.

    Hi Arkane, Welcome to the forum and congrats on being a new season ticket holder. Some members here know a lot more than I do about this topic so let's wait and see what they have to say but I believe that it's hard to break even unless you buy UB4 or maybe UB3. I don't see breaking even if you pay $100 per ticket for UB seating but I could be wrong. Maybe by going to the non marquee games on weekdays and selling the weekends' and big games will do the job though. To answer your other question, I am pretty confident that there is availability literally everywhere so I believe that you will be able to get seats in your preferred sections without any problem.

    Unless I am mistaken, in the past Canucks season tickets were for 45 games (41+4). Because of the China game it was reduced to 44 (41+3) for this season, No idea why it's still 44 for next season but I am glad about it.

    UB4 Offensive zone are $4005 for the pair. Probably +/-$3800 for defensive zone.

    I am getting the carry-on luggage because I will need a new one. Might as well taking something that I have to buy pretty soon. Excellent perks. No extra preseason game. A free pair of tickets for a game. We keep the $200 of food/beverage. No raise. Wow! Good job Canucks! Now let's start winning some hockey games. I am really happy.

    I hope not. We already have to pay for an extra preseason game next season.

    I am definitely renewing. I am lucky enough to have 2 repeating "customers". One guy buys me 10-11 games every year and 1 lady bought me like 7-8 pairs this season and they both say that they want to buy from me again next year. I sell for a VERY reasonable price. For a lot of games, I am taking only a $2-$3 profit per ticket. The little money I am making will fully pay for the tickets that I am using/giving for this season (Only 5 games though). Once the team is better I will go to more games. Right now I am just not into it. I'd rather watch them on TV. Having season tickets doesn't cost me anything, I get free tickets for 5 games, I got a jersey from the Canucks + $200 of food, a pair of excellent tickets for a concert. Why would I cancel my seasons? I'll be glad to have them when they compete again.

    It looks like that we will need to start a new thread pretty soon called "2018-19 Season Tickets".

    I sold my pair for the Bruins game about 2 months ago but did someone find out what the heck is going on for Saturday's game? Prices are so high it's unreal. Last year the Bruins game was pretty much just like any other game. I am trying to find any explanation and I can't find any. Really but really weird....

    Even if the Canucks decide to freeze their prices for next season, our bill will be higher because there won't be a home preseason game in China. +/- $100 in UBIV. I know that a pair of preseason tickets in UB4 is only about $60 but they work with an annual average price and it's still an additional game. We can expect the normal 45 games instead of 44 + no home games during the Holidays because of the world juniors. We should find out in the next month or so.
