The Pittsburgh Penguins announced today to allow fans to puchase merchandise at a 50% discount as their way of saying sorry for the lockout. Is this suitable or just another merchandising ploy? Oh and certain items at concessions will be gratis. No details given as to items from what i saw.

Free beers and hot dogs for everyone who goes to a game and i'm happy for the rest of my life.

EDIT: Meant if the Canucks did that, cause yeah i don't live in Pitts.. Wish i did if they had a deal like that though.

Obviously the hidden plot is to make the lost revenue.. 50% off? Pft, it only costs like $20 to make a jersey.

LA Kings are giving back to the community by donating one million dollars.
Now that is a great gesture to earn any fans respect back. (No selfish free ticket bull that people think they are entitled to)

I like it.
It's win / win. As a Penguins (hyopethically) fan would you rather there wasn't a promotion like this? Seriously? Would you be upset that they're offering merchandise at half price?
They didn't have to. And no one's forcing you to buy anything.

Agreed. Tampa is offering $200 season tickets for a limited time. That's special.

As per TSN Pheonix is offering its fans an entire section to yourself...

PS. Free or discounted beer...bad idea. Free tix for kids great idea...encourage alternative family activity and a good way to start building your fan base and they should also offer discounted merchandise/jersey.

Doesn't really matter in Pittsburgh. When you have the players they do people will come back. Doesn't hurt that the Steelers didn't make the playoffs either.

Three-peat on the presidents trophy? We're talking a minimum 8-peat! However, this is not the trophy we are looking for...

teams have fans that live all over the country, so how would a sale on merch at the Rogers center effect me and others living everywhere else? Yet I support the team in Montreal, Ottawa,Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Toronto.

Everyone should get a free jersey on entry to the first home game. The crowd would look sick.

I like that. It's affordable for the team, hugely fan-focused, and would look amazing on CBC.
