    6'7"!!!! OMG.... You're almost a full foot taller than me. I obviously don't have the same issue as you. lol I am more than halfway (19) through my goal of attending a home game of every 32 NFL teams but I also did several NHL arenas (Most of them back East when I was still living in Montreal). NHL arenas done are: Montreal (Forum and Bell Centre), Quebec City, Hartford, Boston (Old Garden), NYR, NYI (Nassau Coliseum), Philadelphia (Spectrum), Pittsburgh (Igloo), Washington (Capital Center), Buffalo, Chicago (Old Stadium) Vancouver & Arizona. I also visited some NHL arenas without seeing a hockey game there (Calgary, Dallas, Nashville, New Jersey, Anaheim, LA & Vegas). I love sports and I love travelling. I'm combining both as much as I can. i went also to the FIFA world cup in Brazil and the last EURO tournament in France. I forgot to mention that I also traveled to Mexico City just to see the Canadian Men's soccer team play Mexico at Azteca Stadium. Most of my relatives, friends and family members think that I'm a bit crazy. Hahaha,

    Sorry to be off topic but I will attend my first ever Canucks road game on Monday against the Rangers. It will be my 3rd game at the Madison Square Garden but my first one in.....28 years.

    I traded Pittsburgh and Vegas for Montreal tickets. If you include my own pair, I sold the 6 quite easily. I'm checking now if I could trade Winnipeg as well.

    I was quite disappointed by the number of empty seats last night for a game against Chicago. I don't know what people are waiting for before supporting the team. Tickets were available at a very low price. I sold my pair of UB4 defensive zone for way below face value. I didn't need them because I had the 4 seats of the company where I work.

    The tickets that I exchanged yesterday (Pittsburgh for Montreal) got sold the very same day just a few hours after my move. I got lucky again this morning. I was able to trade my UB4 defensive zone Vegas game (The game that will be in March) for UB4 defensive zone Montreal's game. 100% of my sales so far this season were to contacts (repeating buyers) and/or from Craiglist. I didn't get a single sale on NHL Ticket Exchange (I'm not using Stubhub though). I only have 11 games that are unsold for the rest of the season. Soon, I will need to put some tickets aside because otherwise I will not be able to attend a single game this season. Don't get me wrong, the market is not high but if the asking price is just slightly above the season ticket holder cost, tickets will sell. However the fees are too high for buyers on resale sites IMHO. In my opinion, the good thing about Craiglist is that it's all local buyers and once in a while you get a buyer that will ask you for a list of your tickets for sale and they will stay in touch with you year after year. I need to admit that there are some waste of time with idiots who will low ball you or ask if tickets are still available just to not pursue once you answered them yes.

    It seems that my info about the Sedins ceremony was incorrect. Sorry guys.... Other topic, I just traded my Pittsburgh's tickets for Montreal. From UB4 Defense to UB4 offense. I had to pay 3$ something extra per ticket. There are still some UB4 Offensive zone tickets available for the Canadiens' game.

    LOL. Unfortunately it's not. Just an employee that nobody would know. He's on the hockey side though. I would never get any important secret from him. This was only because it's about marketing and not hockey related.
  8. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    Not a big deal to say which team it is. He works for the Florida Panthers but he's aware of the special activities in the league and heard that something really special is happening in Vancouver during that weekend. He can't think of anything else than the Sedins. That's all I know. I though that members here would find that info useful but please don't wait the last minute before getting rid of your tickets if nothing is confirmed in the next few weeks or so.
  9. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    And again it's not 100% sure. The guy is in the league and he says that the Canucks are preparing something big for that week-end and he couldn't see anything else than the Sedins.
  10. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    No it's an employee of an NHL team. He's not working for Vancouver, Montreal or the 2 teams facing the Canucks that week-end.
  11. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    You guys do what you want with this info but I was told that the Sedin's will get their jerseys retired on December 15 & 16. Unfortunately, I already sold my tickets. I have no proof and don't quote me on this.
  12. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    Geez.... I didn't even try. I was just waiting for the date and the time shown in the Canucks email.
  13. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    I'm assuming that the exchange thing is based on seniority because mine starts only on Wednesday.
  14. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    Did you already pick among the 6 events offered so far? Or are you waiting like me for the next offers?
  15. 2018-2019 Canucks season tickets thread

    Not only did I get the email but the Canucks already offered me 6 events. Keith Urban (I already had my tickets so no), the basketball game (Next weekend I'm in Milwaukee/Green Bay so no again) and 4 other shows that i was not interested. I called the Canucks yesterday and they said that I can wait. They will send me 2-3 other offers in batches during the year as the artists are confirming their shows at Rogers Arena.
