Why are maple leaf tickets so expensive?

All i want is to go to the ACC and watch a leaf game with my girlfriend. No matter what seats you want, cheap or good..the fuckers are like 185 dollars per seat..that the cheap seats, and like 400 dollars for the gold and platinums....Ive been to two leaf games in my life, one at copps and one at the corel centre in ottawa....why are leaf tickets so expensive at the ACC.

iCome to San Jose - only $18 for the last row (which is not that far off the ice), and $120 for glass.

It depends on who the opposition team is. The better the opposition team is, the more expensive your ticket is gonna be. Other factors: facilities, location, seats, etc.
I heard GM Place is one of the best stadiums in NA. The Canucks tickets here are ranging from CDN$30 to CDN$150.

The nose bleed seats at ACC are $44.00 which isn't too bad. I've sat in Reds And Purple and was impressed at how well you can see the game up there!! Toronto fans love hockey, it's the whole supply and demand. They charge so much because they know the fans will still pay. GO LEAFS!!

I get a large umber of comp tix at Sharks games, but that's because we provide the music during in game play (you know, that stuff you hear between whistles).

But I also have my own stash of tickets for the season.

Sharks on on a roll - not too far behind Detroit for the Western Conf!

EDIT: Opps!! I forgot Colorado took the lead... Still, San Jose is only behind by them by 5 points.

Western Conference will be a tight race...

5 million hockey mad people in the GTA, 20 thousand seats in the ACC.

Demand is greater than supply.

Yeah, but even tickets in Atlanta cost more.. and this is the first year that the Thrashers even showed hope...

Then again, they are owned by AOL-Turner... That couldbe why they cost so much!
