Yes there are 10 game plans. I have one of those. There's also flex plans.

Looks like my seats went up $8 a game.

Check out the 1/2 season package. Price per game is just a bit higher.

Had 1/2 for 4 years; my old seats are row 1 of the Loge now, way out of my price range. We decided to spend our disposable income on travel instead of tickets. We end up spending way more on travel.

You need to check with the Season Ticket reps as this may only be for the play-offs. But we all did get a letter a season or two ago warning us about resale's.

Do you know if there is a threshold percentage of re-sells that raises the flag? I remember getting that letter but I don't remember the details. I've got a full season pair but I've had a terrible time with scheduling conflicts this year and missed a lot more games than I normally do. What are we supposed to do in this case, eat the tickets? Donate them? F that, if I can't go I usually offer them to a group of friends first and them put them up for sale. If Jeff doesn't like that he can have them back. I can think of lots of ways to spend $8,600 a year.

I would imagine that policy is invoked when it's obvious the STM is a re-seller by trade. And that's ok with me. I get tired of all the opponent colors in the arena too. But I do recall the sales rep who sold me the tickets originally using the resale value of the tickets as a big selling point.

I think it was over half the season tick tickets.

More than half of the season tickets waswhat they announced. The guy in front of me got a letter last year, but he's still there.

You have to sell on a site that is not controlled by the team or the league.

Don't use the ticket exchange. It is easy but they wipe 20% off the purchase price on top of whatever fees they charge the buyer
