How else can anyone explain the resent egregious ticket price increase?
Some tickets almost doubled.
This is a team that has two top nine forwards in Kane and Toews.
This is a team that has one defenseman, Keith, who would beat out any of the defensemen left in the playoffs tonight.
This is a franchise that has missed the playoffs 9 out of 10 years and could easily miss again next year if Toews or Kane is hurt.
This franchise is drinking their own bath water and reading the headlines they write on their website.
Why would a team that just caught up to the 1960's and finally agreed to show home games on TV soak the few remaining fans that are diehard enough to actually watch this pathetic example of an NHL team?
I, like a few hundred others, have been going to 20+ games a year through the lost decade. Obviously John McDonough, the new club president, was drunk up in Wrigleyville during the past 10 years and doesn't know how few real fans are left.
Oh well, Bill Wirtz is back and Pully, Peter Wirtz, Krivo, JY, Cullimore and minus 10 Klemm can't be far behind.
At least the price I pay for scalped ticket after the puck is dropped, $20 for a 100 level won't change. Come say hello next March. I will be the one yelling, "I told you so" to the other 3,000 at the game.
