$97.91/sec

That's how much Ovechkin brings back to Siberia for every second he is on the ice. (Assuming that he plays for 82 games at 19:48TOI/game)

A family of four with mid-level seats, parking, some hotdogs can expect to spend close to $1000.

These are great hockey players, but I don't think the ticket prices need to be so high to fund their absurd salaries. You just hate listening to Kypreos when he says the lockout will cause financial hardship. Gee, if they fold the NHL, we can bring back the WHA or just watch the AHL. The AHL is actually not that bad.

THE SALARIES AREN'T THE REASON OF TICKET PRICES! DO PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND? IF 50,000 PEOPLE WANT TO GO TO ONE GAME AND THERE ARE 19,000 SEATS OF COURSE PRICES WILL BE HIGH

The tickets cost what they do because the owners want to make more money. It has nothing to do with player salaries.

just think, you can get 1/2 season tickets (21 games) in Florida 24 rows from the ice behind the net for $860.

Shea Weber gets to take $13 million dollars to Nunavut for not even stepping on the ice this year and another $13 million next year even if there is no hockey.

Some NHL owners get to take home a profit year after year without fans commenting on their outrageous profits (or the fact that they set ticket prices and salaries that we like to blame on players) despite the fact that some individual players (like Ovi) directly generate more income for their team than that individual owner put in to buy the team.

And most fire fighters are volunteers. Life ain't fair.
