Bought mine too. It sucks that you cannot choose the empty seats but rather are pre-assigned..

True it would be nice to select our own seats, but at least we won't have people going super early and putting jackets on all the good seats and then wait for their buddies =]

Yea! In.

I like that they're assigned seats vs a mad dash of maniacs. Just happy to be in the building, as it'll feel almost like hockey.

There's an additional "processing fee" of $2.50 as well (+$25.49).

Yeah, but what I meant was that picking seat online through Ticketmaster, where they show you which seats are available, as a blue dot. Is that for hockey games? I've seen it for other things.

Damn, I didn't know that it would be sold out in the first hour, as I don't think it got much publicity. But at the same time, there is a capacity of 5,000 seats.

Oh yea, I know what you mean! I had to re-search a couple of times trying to get better seats, gave up after 3 times since the results were all pretty much the same haha

Very cool of Bieksa and others to be very proactive in the community.
No way I can make it even if tickets are still available but I would like to show my support in the form of a donation.

Does anyone know who else will be playing in Bieksa's charity event other than Higgins, Lapierre, Bieksa, the Sedins, Schneider, Mitchell, Raymond, Hamhuis and Malhotra?

i was glad to see bieksa and daniel sedin calling out the leaches ( i mean scalpers ) that have taken advantage of a inititive by bieksa and his buddys to raise some much needed financial resources to canucks place and a few of the other causes that canuck players regularly raise funds for

as bieksa says " its not the way i was raised but those guys are the ones who have to live with it "
daniel " if thats the case they should be embarrassed "

We can blame the scum of the earth (scalpers) for it selling out so fast. Tickets are going for 100-150.....

I've never understood why scalpers are allowed to stand outside the venue, buying/selling tickets? Is there not more that can be done to prevent scalping? It really is a shame....I once lined up in the wee hours to buy Save On More tickets that were designated (at that time) for kids. You had to have a valid C-Force membership in order to purchase them and a scalper showed up right behind me and bought 8 sets of tickets for various games. No C-Force membership and it was obvious he was a scalper, as he called his buddy who'd obviously gone to another location to ask "which games did you get" in order to coordinate/cover as many premium games as possible. I offered him my two cents on the way out.

Especially when it's a charity event....they should have people give a name/reference when buying tickets and then show ID - I'd be all for it. I mean, in the event that the rightful ticket owner/purchaser couldn't go, they'd have to have something in place for that. But it's too easy for scalpers to practice their trade and rip off the rest of us.

Pretty easy to screw the scalpers, don't buy off them and they've already made the donation to charity.

We had a similar incident with scalpers for Toy Story on ice or something to that effect in Everett. I thought that was tacky
considering it was a kid's event but scalping tickets for a charity game has to take the cake.
Maybe Bieksa and company can introduce themselves for a few moments outside the event,haha.
On a more positive note,what an awesome cause and great to see so many players joining this event.
