Lol it's important to note this only takes into account season tickets. go do a short stubhub survey and you'll see it's almost impossible to get into many of those buildings for less than $120. Average of $87 for the canucks is a joke. anyone who tried to buy tickets last year knows $87 a very cheap ticket (comparatively) and the actual average is probably closer to 150-200. Same with philly, boston, NYR, pittsburgh etc...

Further, it doesn't take into account premium seating (which often is a major part of arenas, particularly in the US)....

So basically not a very useful survey, except for season ticket holders. it doesn't represent market prices for most places. Even if it were to reflect ticketmaster prices, it would be a pretty useless survey, since it's nearly impossible to get seats that way for many arenas and stubhub (or other resell vendors) is the only real way to get seats (and it's more expensive).

I'd like to see a survey of stubhub prices. I would guess toronto is far ahead (particularly as of last year) followed by the Canucks, Canadiens, Rangers, Jets and Bruins, in no particular order.

If you want an in-depth look at ticket prices from Feb this year:

http://thehockeywriters.com/nhl-ticket-prices-a-western-conference-comparison/

While every Western Conference team except Colorado (Tickethorse) uses Ticketmaster as their official ticket supplier, secondary market ticket resellers such as StubHub (owned by Ebay) and Razorgator (based in California) are often a competitive if not cheaper alternative for fans.

Below is a chart showing every Western Conference team and the price of the cheapest ticket available for one person, both from Ticketmaster and also a secondary market reseller. While these prices change daily, if not hourly, consistency has been attempted by keeping the opponents to either Columbus, Phoenix or Anaheim for each team, depending on the remaining schedule.

This list does not include standing room or specialized VIP tickets. The lowest priced ticket available for the listed game using these websites is shown in bold and these were generally electronic or instant printable tickets, thus eliminating any delivery charges from companies such as FedEx.

($) (inc all fees, taxes, delivery charges) Ticketmaster StubHub Razorgator Anaheim Ducks vs CBJ Feb 18 24.00 (402 row E) 19.95 (442 row P) 16.20 (421 row P) Calgary Flames vs CBJ Mar 29 68.75 (205 row 17) na * Chicago Blackhawks vs CBJ Feb 24 69.34 (326 row 14) 96.25 (321 row 17) Colorado Avalanche vs CBJ Apr 15 27.00 (322 row 7) ** 18.95 (320 row 7) 26.95 (362 row 11) Columbus Blue Jackets vs PHX Mar 16 37.00 (224 row N) 32.95 (207 row Q) Dallas Stars vs ANA Mar 14 32.23 (301 row CC) 34.95 (328 row O) Detroit Red Wings vs CBJ Feb 21 41.40 (218A row 22) 24.90 (225B row 23) Edmonton Oilers vs PHX Feb 23 70.00 (334 row 46) 59.77 (337 row 52) Los Angeles Kings vs CBJ Apr 18 44.00 (315 row 6) 43.85 (309 row 6) 40.70 (305 row 12) Minnesota Wild vs CBJ Apr 13 55.39 (226 row 2) 69.85 (208 row 1) Nashville Predators vs CBJ Apr 4 40.13 (333 row R) 31.95 (305 row L) Phoenix Coyotes vs ANA Mar 2 27.25 (221 row N) 18.95 (224 row Q) 26.20 (229 row F) San Jose Sharks vs CBJ Apr 21 49.25 (206 row 16) 45.25 (210 row 16) St. Louis Blues vs CBJ Apr 5 44.05 (332 row 7) 32.90 (327 row Q) Vancouver Canucks vs CBJ Mar 26 66.00 (327 row 14) *** 98.45 (317 row 13) * Only Press Seats available ** Colorado uses Tickethorse *** Last Seat in House ticket special

The cheapest tickets available were for the Anaheim vs Columbus game at just over $16, followed closely by Phoenix and Colorado at just under $19. The most expensive single tickets on this day belonged to the Chicago Blackhawks at close to $70, followed by the Calgary Flames at $68.75 and the Vancouver Canucks who managed to keep costs down slightly by adding “Last Seat In The House Single” tickets, reduced to $66.

__________________________________________________________________________________

While the Canadian teams and old-timers such as Chicago and Detroit generally have little trouble filling their respective rinks, an interesting comparison is the price differences between the cheapest and most expensive seats for each franchise.

The table below shows the lowest to highest prices for a game ticket, as shown via the cost range area of the Ticketmaster online website. These prices are all subject to change with the lowest often including standing room and the highest being row 1, glass seating.

($) Ticketmaster Price Range- Lowest Highest Anaheim Ducks 24 290 Calgary Flames 40 280 Chicago Blackhawks 34 457 Colorado Avalanche 21* 217 Columbus Blue Jackets 17 212 Dallas Stars 11 408 Detroit Red Wings 16 217 Edmonton Oilers 60 300 Los Angeles Kings 37 477 Minnesota Wild 43 262 Nashville Predators 35 345 Phoenix Coyotes 20 355 San Jose Sharks 44 241 St. Louis Blues 40 307 Vancouver Canucks 60** 355 * Tickethorse ** Last Seat In House Singles

While the Dallas Stars have official tickets starting at just $11, surprisingly the Detroit Red Wings also have seats starting at just $16 with first row action costing just over $210, close to $150 cheaper then fellow original six team Chicago. The cheapest row 1 seating went to the Columbus Blue Jackets at $212 while the most expensive ice-level seating went to the LA Kings at $477, similar to the price of a first row ticket (not court-side) at an LA Lakers game.

Ticket Price Comparisons

The cost of one front row seat on Ticketmaster, behind the goal at the United Center for the Chicago Blackhawks vs LA Kings game on March 25th – $457

=

Two Tampa Bay Lightning 2013 season tickets in the GTE Terrace level and two Reebok Steven Stamkos Accelerator Shirts – $452 (using the included $25 gift voucher in the $200 season ticket promotion)

The two cheapest available 1st row, lower bowl tickets for the Vancouver Canucks vs LA Kings game at Rogers Arena on March 2nd, bookable through Stubhub including fees and delivery charges (section 114)- $679.95

=

Two flights to Los Angeles, departing from Seattle $120pp (Boltbus Vancouver to Seattle $14pp) on March 22nd, 1 night in a private hostel room near Hollywood $30, 2 cheapest tickets available for the 1pm LA Kings vs Vancouver Canucks game at the Staples Center on March 23rd $90, return flight LAX to Vancouver after the game on March 23rd $150pp – $688

While the above scenarios may seem exaggerated, for a neutral hockey fan it certainly pays to be in a city such as Anaheim or Phoenix It is fairly obvious that demand for tickets increases prices but in some hockey markets the casual fan is being priced out, often expecting to pay over $100 a ticket.
