  1. Anyone else see the news about stubhub? They were fined $1.3 million dollars by the Competition Bureau of Canada for their pricing scheme of having hidden fees. Part the deal is a 10 year court order which mandates Stubhub to have "ALL-IN" pricing for all canadian events. Looks like this has begun to be implemented today because all Canucks games are now showing "ALL-IN" pricing with all fees included on the stubhub app. The desktop version still does not appear to reflect this yet. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/stubhub-competition-bureau-1.5462632 "As part of the deal, StubHub will ensure that tickets to Canadian events on its service "will now include all mandatory fees throughout the ticket purchasing process." The agreement is binding for at least 10 years."
  2. You're not worried about the coronavirus, or you're not worried about how other people will react to the coronavirus? Or both?
  3. Anyone else here concerned about the potential impacts that the hysteria around coronovirus could have on the NHL playoffs? Given how things are ramping up, I could see peak hysteria kicking in right around playoff time. Other nations have shut down sporting events completely, I could see the same thing happening here and cancelling the playoffs or postponing them. Not trying to fear monger but let's face it, it's a possibility at this point.
  4. Nothing for me when I logged in. I remember last year they did renewals in waves presumably to avoid having everyone renew at the sametime and overwhelm customer service. So maybe some people will get renewal emails and others won't right away.
  5. Definitely after tonight's blowout I expect renewals out Monday morning lol. Strike while the iron is hot.
  6. We have 2 wins in our last 8 games. Not sure what to say. Losing to teams like Anaheim and Minnesota on home ice is not really sitting well with me.
  7. My wife, who has become a pretty big hockey nut, still isn't a big enough nut to follow other teams. So she doesn't know who Tyler Toffoli is. Well, when I saw the trade, I yelled out "BABE, WE GOT TYLER TOFFOLI!".... she said.... "What? I'm not tired of Chipotle". So we got Chipotle tonight for dinner and then I explained to her, over dinner, who Tyler Toffoli is.

  9. This loss makes us 2-1-0 in our last 3. It also makes us 2-5-0 in our last 7.
  10. Biggest tell for me is inventory. Some games sell out quicker on ticketmaster and that results in less ultimate inventory on stubhub. The Colorado game on Friday, March 6th is one example. I expect this game to go up in price from where it is now because inventory is low, it's a Friday game and Colorado is an exciting team to play against. On the other hand, the Columbus game on Sun, March 8th has an enormous amount of inventory and will likely not sell very well at all. Even though it is a Sunday game, it's a 7pm start which no one wants... too late for kids. Also against a boring eastern team.
  11. For those wondering, here is the playoff prices from 2013. These did not include GST (today's prices include GST). I suspect playoff prices will be a bit higher than these but hopefully not by much. Maybe 10% or something.
