I have been on the blue line waiting list for about 4 years now. Usually every October I would get an invoice for the annual fee to hold my spot. This year, I didn't get one (obviously due to the lockout). Just wondering if anyone knows if they are just waiving the fee this year or what? Also I never got an update as to what # I was. Did anyone else get an update with their new spot?

I wonder how the lockout is going to effect the waiting list, if many ticket holders will drop their tickets, etc.
 

OK, so you tell me. Does the rapist go to jail? Should Toffoli be suspended?

 

Basically what we are seeing here is that, like you said, the league feels that us getting a win is enough of a punishment to Toffoli. In analogy to the boy's parents being able to buy a lawyer that can set the boy free on a terrible crime such as rape, the league decided to set Toffoli free on the consideration of potential financial loss.

So you suggest that no one ever pay any type of fee for anything they want? If you really want to go to a once-in-a-lifetime concert, you should only pay face value or refuse to buy a ticket?

Canucks ticket prices are determined by demand. We live in a "supply and demand" society. There's huge demand for canucks tickets, and therefore you have to pay for the priviledge to see them. If people are content sitting at home in HD watching it then there's nothing wrong with it. Frankly I enjoy watching from home too.

I didn't start this thread to be judged though. Just looking for info from other blue line waiting list members on here.

Anyways.....

Looking on craigslist, it looks really rough this year for season ticket holders. Many of them are trying to sell tickets unsuccessfully below market value.

Also, I know many of the season ticket holders rely on the "premium" games from the Eastern Conference to subsidize their season tickets. E.g., people will sell off the big games (Pittsburgh, Washington, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, New York, etc.) for like 3 times face value, and then keep the cheaper games, getting them almost for free.

This year, however, there's no eastern conference games. So no big ticket sales, just crappy western conference games.

I am hoping this deteriorates moral and that we see a drop in season ticket holders this year. That would be good for people on the waiting list! Last lockout we saw this happen, and the waiting list became shorter.

The record high renewal rate was 97% after the canucks did their cup run in 2011. Usually renewal rate hovers around the 95% mark.

With 17,000 season ticket holders, it means around 600-700 seats freed up each year. Assuming most people want 2 tickets, then the waiting list should move up around 350 spots a year, or more as people drop off the waiting list. So hardly 20 people. And if this year sees worse renewal rates (I am thinking 93-94%) then we will see a lot more seats come up.

Maybe we can "park" that thought for the next 11 years - until when you finally get access to a 7 game ice pak up in the upper nose-bleeds!

The annual fee for the waiting list goes towards reducing the price you pay for your season tickets so that's why they put it there. It's also to assure themselves that you're wanting season tickets which is why the fee is there.

Well, you are asking CDC for their help when you should have just called the season ticket office.

There is a waiting list for season tickets? And a fee on top of that!? Buy a bunch of Canucks paraphernalia, home theatre system and NHL Center Ice (optional just thought CI would be cool) and a stockpile of beer.

I don't see much ppl dropping their tickets unless they are going out of town or have $$$ problems. U can get rid of your tickets easy especially in the upper bowl. And most corporate wont drop their tickets since its a tax write off anyways. I know a few coworker have season tickets and sell most of it. During that cup run 2 yrs ago, I think they made like $10k each..

Well this has been the way it has been for a few years. People with season tickets who don't need them just sell them. But... I hear it's not as easy this year. LOTS of empty seats at games means people can't sell their tix for face value, or even give them away. So saying "You can get rid of your tickets easy especially in the upper bowl" I am not sure... check CRAIGSLIST and you will see tons of tix for face value that arent selling.

Guess im just hopeful.... but yeah....
