Also note they are doing a jersey off out backs the first game and allowing a fan to drop the puck opening night. (Saw another tweet about this)
But wow, if there were some of you that were about to break and buy tickets this season, this would change that for me. I'm going to stand pat like I was.
With the lockout done, the Vancouver Canucks will be selling single-game tickets for their abbreviated NHL season this week, and if you feel like feeding your pro hockey habit, it'll cost you at least $63.75 a pop to attend games at Rogers Arena.
The tickets go on sale at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The first three games will feature cheap food and merchandise discounts, but some fans on twitter say that's not enough.
CKNW listeners have tweeted in concerns about long lineups due to the one-dollar grub, while others want the reduced food prices to stay season-long.
Still others say they're planning on boycotting the team altogether.
Here are some Tweets from CKNW listeners in reaction to the food and merchandise discounts touted by the hockey club:
just for opening weekend?#Cheap #OweTheFans
Damage Control much?
too little, too late.
that good deal should do that more often least once a mounth
that sucks! The Sens are giving away one free game to season ticket holders..
the tickets for the first 5 games should be half price too!@VanCanucks otherwise I won't be there for hotdogs pop and merchandise
That'll make it all better. #sad
well since half the season's over *eyeroll* how about those prices for the rest of the year?? Fans will pay 4 it in higher season fix
Still really frustrated by the lockout. Not going to #Canucksgames, so this doesn't affect me at all.
Would rather #Canucks charged full price and donated all the revenue to @CanuckPlace for a few games. They've been hurt by this.
too bad tickets are so expensive....can't afford it and won't go to a game this year
These discounts should be for the entire season.
chaos and long lineups to purchase food/merch = angry customers.
Two hour line ups !!!!
I’m never going to a Canucks game again.
